51 Former Wrestlers Suing WWE Over Brain Injuries

A new class-action lawsuit has been filed against WWE by a cavalcade of wrestlers from the past (of varying degrees of fame), including Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, who was recently determined mentally unfit to stand trial in his recent murder case, over brain-related injuries they may have suffered while working for WWE at one time or another. WWE is being accused of deliberately hiding information that could have reduced the severity of their assorted infirmities. For their part, WWE has issued a statement which point out that this suit was filed by the same lawyer who recently had two similar concussion lawsuits against WWE thrown out due to “patently false allegations about WWE”, and closes by saying that they are “confident this lawsuit will suffer the same fate as his prior attempts and be dismissed”.
