Rockstar Pro, one of the premier indie promotions in Ohio and based out of Dayton, has announced they are ending their alliance with Dave Crist‘s OI4K Wrestling School as the companies training facility, following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct directed at Dave Crist over the past 24 hours throughout the #SpeakOut movement on Social Media. The movement began as a response to David Starr‘s allegations and has since gone viral and empowered women from around the world to speak out on decades of abuse, from sexual to emotional, towards women and men in the industry.
Effective immediately, Rockstar Pro has ended our relationship with OI4K Wrestling Academy.
We will be launching a new wrestling school under NEW trainers, including Impact star @zachary_wentz! More information on the new school will be announced soon.

Going forward, Rockstar Pro has announced they will be starting up their own in-house wrestling program that will be lead by IMPACT Wrestling’s Zachary Wentz of the Rascalz, who issued his own statement on the situation.
