Matthew Randazzo author of “Ring Of Hell” claims that a senior AEW executive had a run-in with Dave Lagana during his time in WWE. Lagana was a booker for NWA, WWE, ROH, and TNA wrestling.
Randazzo claims he has heard from more than 10 sources about the incident involving a current AEW executive. He says he has reached out to AEW’s for corroboration but got no response.
(2 of 2) I will not share senior AEW exec/Lagana story because involves vulnerable 3rd party.— Matthew Randazzo (@RandazzoTweets) June 23, 2020
Reminder 1: I have no personal opinion; just reporting from 10+ sources.
Reminder 2: I originally wrote book to call out systemic culture of abuse and exploitation…13 years ago.
Since Ms. Savage is being publicly challenged, I will take the extra step of contacting @AEWonTNT and requesting the executive in question confirm or deny his run-in with Mr Lagana.— Matthew Randazzo (@RandazzoTweets) June 23, 2020
if what I’ve been told is true, I hope he speaks up in support of Liz and all victims.
NWA announced last week that Lagana resigned after the allegation from Liz Savage.
Pursuant to allegations made by pro wrestler Liz Savage on her Twitter account, 6/18/2020, NWA VP David Lagana has resigned his position, effective immediately. As well all production of NWA content is temporarily halted, pending a restructuring of executive management positions.— NWA (@nwa) June 19, 2020
Dave Lagana issued a statement to POST Wrestling to refute the allegation that he sexually assaulted Liz Savage, in 2010. Lagana’s full statement can be read at this link.
