WWE wrestler Matt Riddle's attorney states the accusations of sexual misconduct by independent wrestler Candy Cartwright are "completely false".
Cartwright's claims state Riddle choked her and pressured her to perform oral sex on him in a car in 2018.
Calling the accusation “another attempt to harass and humiliate Mr. and Mrs. Riddle and to try to tarnish their reputation in the community,” Riddle’s lawyer says they “have been aware for the last two years of this performer stalking the Riddle family.”
The full statement is available below:
The allegations by this independent female performer are completely false and another attempt to harass and humiliate Mr. and Mrs. Riddle and to try to tarnish their reputation in the community.
We have been aware for the last two years of this performer stalking the Riddle family.
In 2019, our firm had drafted a pleading against this performer to seek an injunction for cyberstalking in the Circuit Court for Orange County, Florida.
