Lars Sullivan Sends Unsolicited DMs
The October 9th 2020 WWE Draft marked the TV return of “The Freak” Lars Sullivan. Sullivan was drafted to Smackdown in shocking fashion following the tag team match of Miz and Morrison Vs. Jeff Hardy and Matt Riddle. This marked the first time Lars Sullivan had been seen on WWE TV since June 2019, when he was sidelined with a knee injury.
All may not be going to plan with Sullivan’s return however as new information about Lars Sullivan sending unsolicited nude photographs has surfaced. Sullivan is no stranger to falling victim to his own actions online, In December of 2019 videos surfaced of Sullivan’s past in the adult film industry under the name of Mitch Bennett.
Sullivan had also been under previous scrutiny for comments regarding race, sexual orientations, and inappropriate sexual comments about WWE Chief Brand Officer, Stephanie McMahon. The comments were found and showcased by a user on Reddit and feature forum comments on BodyBuilding.com from two separate accounts linked back to the wrestler posted between the years of 2007 and 2013. Sullivan has since issued an apology for the comments and was given the fine of $100,000 by WWE.
The latest incident see’s WWE’s Lars Sullivan harassing a woman via Instagram and asking for pictures before then sending unsolicited pictures of his own. A Reddit thread was posted showing photographs of the conversations from Sullivan’s official account.
As of now there has not been any statement issued by Lars Sullivan or the WWE. Moving forward, what will this mean for the career of the newly returning Lars Sullivan?
