WWE Hall of Famer and former Raw general manager Mick Foley has been accused of sexual misconduct by a woman when she was 15 years of age, as first reported by Ryan Clark of eWrestlingNews.com.
The woman - named Angel Amoroso - shared a video to recount the alleged incident on her Facebook page. Amoroso walked around with a sign that said Foley engaged in sex with her when she was 15 years of age. Foley has yet to respond to the incident, and there are no further details at this time.
This allegation joins a trend of countless women revealing stories about being sexually harassed or assaulted, especially by powerful male celebrities and politicians. This started with over 50 different women accusing Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of assaulting them. It led to Weinstein being fired by The Weinstein Company while being expelled and/or suspended from numerous academies that he was part of.
Recently, former U.S. President George H.W. Bush has also been accused of sexual assault on numerous occasions in the past 20 years. Actor and producer, Louis C.K. and other major celebrities have also faced repercussions following alleged assaults against them.
WWE.com has also yet to respond to the allegations against Foley. For what it's worth, an arrest would automatically have Foley (who's recovering from hip surgery in April), suspended from the company.
Throughout the WWE's history a number of wrestlers, employees and other officials have been accused of sexual assault and misconduct. This includes former trainer Bill DeMott (who left the WWE following allegations) and referee Pat Patterson. Former diva Ashley Massaro also claimed she was assaulted during her tenure with the company in 2006.
The allegations against Foley are indeed shocking and don't reflect well for the WWE. Until more details come out, it remains to be seen if Foley will face any charges or repercussions for the allegations.
