On a recent episode of Vince Russo’s podcast, he claims while he was in WWE a female wrestler reported to him that she was sexually assaulted. The assault was said to involve another member of the WWE roster.
Ryan Satin of the Pro Wrestling Sheet posted a clip of the podcast:

Vince Russo’s Claims Transcribed
“When I was at the WWE, one of the female wrestlers came up to me, and actually told me that she was raped by another wrestler on the roster. She told me who it was, she was very upset, she was very shaken, and I’m sure after all these years she still carries that pain with her, which is really unfortunate.”
Former WWE wrestler, Shelly Martinez (aka Ariel), then came forward with a similar claim.
I almost got raped while on a over seas tour. Since then others have shared with me they were raped. So sad. https://t.co/JyHbTlKysY
