A week after WWE released three WWE NXT UK pro-wresters over allegations of sexual harassment and violence the company has now suspended another wrestler from the brand Je Coffey, brother of WWE NXT UK tag team champion Mark.

First reported by PWInsider, Coffey was accused of improprieties against a woman. The same woman had accused Travis Banks, who has been released by WWE since.

Meanwhile, Twitter user Sierra Loxton said she had to block Coffey on social media "because he wouldn't leave me alone."

She added she heard stories he "sexually harassed 3 girls, sending unsolicited naked images, voice notes, stalking."
