NXT Tag Team Champion Nash Carter has been released by WWE. Earlier this week, IMPACT wrestler Kimber Lee took to Twitter to accuse her husband, NXT’s Nash Carter, of domestic abuse, accompanying her Tweet with photos of a face injury, which she claimed was intentionally caused by Carter.
Hey @WWENXT this is my face after your tag champ @NashCarterWWE got wasted and hit me so hard he split my lip open. He told me I’m a wrestler so I’m always marked up. I’ve hid this for a year and even forgave him. But I can’t hide it anymore. pic.twitter.com/qdYjcneAwC
Nash Carter’s tag-team partner Wes Lee’s wife, Erica Marie, then responded to the allegations, claiming that Nash Carter had been living with her and her husband for months, and that it was Kimber Lee who tried to go after Carter.
There are two sides to every story @Kimber_Lee90 From what I heard, you were in fact the one that was drunk and tried to go after Nash but instead, hit your face on a car door cause you were wobbling everywhere. Are you ready to tell people the whole, REAL truth Kim?
Just so everyone is aware, @NashCarterWWE has been living with Wes and I for months ever since she was in the hospital (which she checked herself into). He’s actually been the one trying to avoid her and HER mental abuse. They haven’t been together. He went to 1 therapy session..

Wes Lee’s wife also commented on how Nash Carter had handed in divorce papers on Monday, and that Lee took to Twitter because she’s angry that he no longer wants to be with her.
Y’all… @Kimber_Lee90 got served divorce papers by Nash on Monday. He’s been done with her. She’s mad that this is all happening so she’s turning to Twitter because she’s outraged that he doesn’t want to be with her anymore. It really is that simple…
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful was the first to report that Carter has been released by WWE, with several other sources confirming the news shortly after. It’s currently unknown whether Carter’s release was due to the allegations or the photo of his Hitler impression.
Nash Carter and Wes Lee won the NXT Tag Team Championships at last Saturday’s NXT Stand And Deliver Premium-Live-Event.
During this week’s NXT, it was announced that they would be making their first title defense against Grayson Waller and Sanga on next week’s episode. NXT have not yet provided an update on the match.
