Dave Lagana resigns from NWA due to sexual assault allegation

Dave Lagana is no longer with the NWA after being accused of sexual assault.

“Pursuant to allegations made by pro wrestler Liz Savage on her Twitter account, 6/18/2020, NWA VP David Lagana has resigned his position, effective immediately. As well all production of NWA content is temporarily halted, pending a restructuring of executive management positions,” the NWA announced today.

As part of the #SpeakingOut movement, Savage posted her allegation against Lagana yesterday. She wrote that she moved to Los Angeles in 2010 and was staying with Lagana and sharing a bed with him, but nothing was romantic or sexual. Savage alleged that, about two months into her stay, she “woke up in the middle of the night and [Lagana] had his hand down the front of my pants underneathmy underwear. He was also touching himself. I was scared. I froze for a monent and I pretended I was asleep. Then I tossed hard and pulled away from him, hoping he would leave me alone. He did. Then he kicked me out that week with less than a week notice.”

Lagana has yet to comment publicly on the allegation.

The NWA hasn’t run events in recent months due to the coronavirus pandemic but has been producing content for their YouTube channel, including their Carnyland series that debuted in May.
