A new report has suggested that current NXT Tag Team Champion Nash Carter has been released by WWE following allegations of domestic abuse.
Nash Carter and long-time tag team partner Wes Lee – collectively known as MSK – recently competed at NXT Stand & Deliver where they faced Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel and The Creed Brothers in a Triple Threat Match for the NXT Tag Team Championship. Ultimately it was MSK who emerged from the match as NXT Tag Team Champions for the second time in their WWE career.
The win however was overshadowed by serious allegations by Nash Carter’s wife and pro-wrestler Kimber Lee who took to social media to share disturbing accusations against Carter.
Across a number of now-deleted posts, Kimber Lee wrote that she had been going through hell since October. She later explained that the abuse led to her almost taking her own life. The IMPACT Wrestling star said that she had hidden Carter’s abuse in “hopes of keeping a career.”
Kimber Lee followed up by sharing images of herself that she alleges were taken after Carter had “split [her] lip open.” Lee also shared a disturbing image which apparently shows Nash Carter giving a Nazi salute.
Hey @WWENXT this is my face after your tag champ @NashCarterWWE got wasted and hit me so hard he split my lip open. He told me I’m a wrestler so I’m always marked up. I’ve hid this for a year and even forgave him. But I can’t hide it anymore. pic.twitter.com/qdYjcneAwC
