WWE Plagued by Lawsuits

The WWE has been sued by over 50 wrestlers who claim the WWE hid long-term effects of neurological injuries from years of in-ring action. The suit was filed in federal court in New Haven, Connecticut. The former wrestlers claim that WWE “placed corporate gain over its wrestlers’ health, safety and financial security, choosing to leave the plaintiffs severely injured and with no recourse to treat their damaged minds and bodies.” They also claim that WWE deliberately ignored and hid from them “medically important and possibly lifesaving information” about specific neurological conditions, such as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, that affect wrestlers and athletes who play contact sports prone to head trauma. The WWE response was: “This is another ridiculous attempt by the same attorney who has previously filed class action lawsuits against WWE, both of which have been dismissed. A federal judge has already found that this lawyer made patently false allegations about WWE, and this is more of the same. We’re confident this lawsuit will suffer the same fate as his prior attempts and be dismissed.” The wrestlers in the new suit include: Road Warrior Animal, Jimmy Snuka, Paul Orndorff, Chavo Guerrrero Jr (currently taking chair shots to the head in Lucha Underground), Chavo Guerrero Sr., Adam Bomb, Ahmed Johnson, Kamala, Dave and Earl Hebner, King Kong Bundy, Ken Patera, Sabu (oh please), Smash, Ax, The Bezerker, Johnny The Bull, Jim Brunzell, Sue Green, King Kong Mosca, Jim Powers, Mike Enos (one of the Beverly Brothers, Butch Reed, Jazz, Sylvain Grenier, Omar Atlas, Don Leo Jonathan, Shane Douglas (why there were no chair shots in ECW, were they?), Muhammad Hassan, Henry Godwin, Princess Victoria, Judy Martin, Mark Jindrak (currently working full time in Mexico), the father of Axl Rotten (another guy who did matches using florescent bulbs and thumb tacks), Marty Janetty, Jon Heindenreich, The Warlord, The Barbarian, The Crippler, Bobbi Billard, Rex King, Tracy Smothers, Mantaur, Black Bart, Slick, One Man Gang, JJ Funk, Lou Marconi, Rod Price, Donald Driggers, Rodney Mack, Outlaw Ron Bass and Boris Zhukov. What you immediately notice after reading this list is that most didn’t even work for WWE when chair shots to the head were common. The other thing is that once they were released they never worked anywhere again. An earlier lawsuit from the same lawyer has already been dismissed.
