According to WrestlingInc, WWE have now commented on ‘Raw‘ announcer Jonathan Coachman being named in the lawsuit to ESPN.
As we previously reported, Coachman is one of several employees from ESPN named in the former anchor and legal analyst Adrienne Lawrence’s sexual discrimination and harassment lawsuit against the company.
In the suit, Lawrence claimed that Coachman offered to mentor her after she had reached out, but soon attempted to turn the relationship personal.
According to Lawrence, she alleges other colleagues told her that Coachman sexually harassed other female employees working at ESPN, which includes but is not limited to former SportsCenter anchor Sara Walsh.
WWE have issued a response on the lawsuit. Check it out:
“We take these matters very seriously and are investigating.”
