Seth Rollins Nude Controversy:

On February 9, 2015, a nude photo of former NXT wrestler Zahra Schreiber, reportedly Seth Rollins girlfriend, was posted to his social media accounts, the contents of which are automatically republished by WWE.com. Soon after, nude photos of Lopez were posted on the Twitter page of his then -fiancée, Leighla Schultz. In response, Lopez apologized for “private photographs that were distributed without his consent”.

Below is the statement issued by Schreiber on her Instagram account:

Let me start this off by saying how grateful I am and how fortunate I feel to have had my time with WWE. It truly was my dream job. Last week WWE made a decision to release me from my contract due to posts I made on social media years ago, long before I was ever employed by them. I understand why that decision was made, but it broke my heart and my spirit. I don’t want my mistakes to reflect on WWE or how incredible they are as a company. The responsibility is my own… Now, I want to take the time to apologize to everyone who was offended by my posts. I am so sorry. I would like to make it very clear

I am in no way, shape or form an anti-Semite, nor do I condone anti-Semitism. If one were to have looked deeper into my post, one would have noticed that also in the photo was Marlene Dietrich. Marlene was a Polish actress who opposed Nazism and fought for the oppressed during WWII. To me the photos and relics were nothing more than a story. I now see it was insensitive of me and in poor taste, which is why I had attempted to delete them long ago. On an aside, a family member of mine took part in the White Rose Movement (Germans trying to end Nazi domination), which is where my interest in the Holocaust actually stemmed from. Also, documented deeper on my Instagram from years ago are photos of me at Dachau Concentration Camp in Germany, and I noted there how disturbed I was by the entire place. Unfortunately, social media rarely notices positivity, and can be an evil place where opinion is easily manipulated to fit the circumstance. I take full accountability for the things I did post, but those out there who are creating Twitter exchanges that never happened or have manufactured other conversations that never took place really need to check themselves and realize how much harm they are actually doing.

Everything I’ve worked for and dreamt of is gone. In an instant, I lost it all. But I can’t let this define my life. I know who I am as a person. I’m as human as anyone else. I’ve made mistakes like we all do. I hope those I’ve offended can forgive me. All I can do now is learn and move forward trying to be better every day.”

Seth Rollins’ Black and Brave Academy Controversy:

A student at the Black and Brave Wrestling Academy in Moline, Ill., died last Thursday after suffering a medical emergency at the school.

Jonah Snyder, 20, of West Seneca, New York, was at the academy, which trains participants to become pro wrestlers.

The gym is run by Colby Lopez, best known as WWE Superstar Seth Rollins.

Per WBKW.com:

The Rock Island County coroner, Brian Gustafson says Snyder was training with eight other people at the gym, when he started to feel ill. According to the coroner, the trainers instructed Snyder to sit down. Snyder’s condition continued to worsen and trainers called 911. Paramedics arrived and Snyder went into cardiac arrest. He was taken to the Genesis Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. 

An autopsy done on Friday was inconclusive according to Gustafson. The Moline Police are continuing to investigate the death.

Foul play is not believed to be involved.

The Quad-City Times is reporting they reached out to Seth Rollins for comment and he directed them to the academy’s statement on Twitter, seen below:

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of our student, Jonah Snyder. Jonah attended the first night of our 7th Black and Brave class a week ago. After briefly participating in fitness drills with his classmates he abruptly fell ill. Emergency personnel were called and Jonah was rushed to the hospital. He passed away en route. No cause of death has been determined.

Jonah loved professional wrestling and in closing we wanted to leave you with his words. Below is an excerpt from the essay Jonah penned for his application to our school. All of our thoughts are with Jonah’s family and friends as they go through this incredibly difficult time.

“I live, breath, sleep, and eat wrestling. It’s in my blood. I want to learn it so I can travel the world putting a smile on people’s faces. I wanna give them hope or something to believe in.”
