Jack Evans makes his entrance

AEW star Jack Evans has made the astonishing claim that he is being extorted by two police officers in Mexico City.

Taking to Twitter on December 8th, Evans explained the situation he had found himself in, while also acknowledging that the messages might sound fake.

Evans said that he had to pay a total of 7000 pesos ($350) to two police officers from the Del Valle Police Department in Mexico City.

“This will sound like a fake message but it is not. I am currently being extorted by 2 police officers from the Del Valle Police Department in Mexico City. In the last 4 days I have had to pay around 7000 pesos (350$ american) and I am not paying more.

“So if I get arrested on drug charges in the next little bit I want to put it out there right now that it was planted by the Del Valle Police Department.”

Since his initial messages, Evans has posted an update to say he has filed an official complaint and is currently “laying low”.

“Update: I filed an official complaint and got all of my witnesses together (there is a lot of them ) and I am just laying low. Nothing else to share.”

Jack Evans signed with AEW in May 2019, forming Hybrid2 with Angélico, who he had also teamed with earlier in his career. As a singles wrestler, Evans challenged Kenny Omega in November 2019 for the AAA Mega Championship but was unsuccessful.

Evans was most recently in action on the October 24th edition of AEW Dark where he suffered a loss to Eddie Kingston.
