It is believed that Elgin remains in a Japanese jail charged with stealing protein powder. Elgin is facing five years in jail or could be deported from Japan and never permitted to return.
Over the last few years, the Canadian star originally from Oshawa, Ontario, was fired from Impact Wrestling due to harassment allegations there and was arrested for violating a protection order.
Elgin published a YouTube video denying the allegations.
