WWE Scores Definitive Win in Concussion Lawsuit

– WWE has been cleared in the concusssion-related lawsuits filed against them. All of the lawsuits were officially dismissed on Monday, according to PWInsider. US District Court Judge Vanessa L. Bryant filed a thirty-nine page ruling dismissing all of the suits, which had been brought by a variety of former performers against the company.

The lawsuits had been filed alleging that WWE failed to protect the talents’ health in regard to concussions, CTE and other head-trauma related injuries. The most notable of the lawsuits was filed in July of 2016 and featured forty-one former performers.

The lawsuits had suffered an increasing number of setbacks over the last year or so, with Bryant ordering Konstantine Kyros, the plaintiffs’ lawyer, to file an amended claim in September or lose the case. In addition, a similar lawsuit filed by Kyros on behalf of Vito LoGrasso and Evan Singleton saw the final complaint dismissed in March.

Opinionated View- Doesn't shock me at all. When ever I see these lawsuits its always guys that wrestled in am any different companies. How can you say "Well it was WWE the real damage as done in."

Report Says Brock Lesnar Backstage at HIAC

Update on Jeff Jarrett vs. Anthem Lawsuit: Anthem files motion in Tennessee for extension

In an update regarding Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Entertainment LLC (Global Force Wrestling) filing a lawsuit against Anthem last month, PWInsider reports that Anthem requested an extension with the United States District Court of Tennessee.

Anthem is requesting for time to “properly respond” to the lawsuit brought forth by Jarrett and GFE. Attorneys for Jarrett have already agreed to the extension. Anthem has asked the court give them until October 15 to file a response.

As reported back in August, Jarrett filed a 26-page lawsuit against Anthem (the parent company of Impact Wrestling) claiming Anthem violated state and federal trademark infringements in relation to Global Force Wrestling/Global Force Entertainment.

While Anthem has yet to fully respond, the company did pull any Global Force Wrestling related DVD releases from the website recently.
