World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) fans have uncovered that a wrestler, once fined $10,000 for a slew of homophobic comments, allegedly used to star in gay porn.

Lars Sullivan, now off-stage as Dylan Miley, also reportedly has a third name under his belt, that of ‘Mitch Bennett’.

Some eagle-eyed reddit users were some of the first to clock that Bennett, a gay porn actor, and Sullivan shared some resemblance to one another.

Fans then tipped Ringside News, where reporters dived deep into the allegations and rounded up several screenshots of adult films starring Bennett on the adult tube website RandyBlue.

Pro wrestler allegedly used to do same-sex pornographic films. 

The outlet compared the footage, which was uploaded in June 2009, to old selfies of the wrestler around that time. WWE signed Sullivan up in 2013.

Bennett’s RandyBlue profile consists of two videos and two photos, which have collectively tallied nearly 24,000 views.

Moreover, Bennett’s biography, which appears to be written in the first-person, describes a random encounter at the gym where Bennett bumps into a guy who has the “most incredible muscular body.

“Not like a body builder, but like someone who had worked on a farm or had done a lot of heavy lifting his whole life and then augmented what nature had given him with strict gym workouts to make it even better.

The biography continued: “Everyone else was a little intimidated but you all know me, I walked right up to him and asked him who he modelled for.

“He smiled this huge toothy grin and let out a belly laugh I didn’t know he was capable of.

“I gave him my card and we started to chat. We ended up showering, at the same time though not together, and it gave me a great idea for his debut video.”

Moreover, Bennett’s profile is tagged “hot straight men” and “hot straight builders”.

Sullivan, who is currently taking time off from WWE to recover from a knee injury, has yet to respond to the allegations, but his Twitter account has been deleted.

The claims come only months after the wrestler was baked in criticism after a rush of racist, sexist and homophobic remarks were revealed.

Spluttered onto bodybuilding message boards, the wrestler tossed comments between 2007 and 2013 under two usernames against female and queer sports-people as well as stating “there is a grey area when it comes to the definition of rape”, outlets reported.

WWE later released the a statement on behalf of Sullivan: “There is no excuse for the inappropriate remarks that I made years ago.

“They do not reflect my personal beliefs nor who I am today, and I apologise to anyone I offended,” Sports Illustrated reported.
