WWE trainer Bill DeMott has resigned over allegations that he engaged in a whole lot of stuff that was too horrible for even people at the WWE to handle. The allegations come from Austin Matelson, known as Judas Devlin in the ring, who sent a long memo to WWE human resources brass detailing allegations of physical abuse, racism and homophobia.

From the memo:
