WWE has responded to a confidential witness report of what occured during last year’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
WWE lawyer Jerry McDevitt issued a statement to Forbes following allegations detailed in several class action lawsuits, including a statement from a former WWE star released in April.
“These false allegations were originally made in two suits filed by two different law firms,” WWE lawyer Jerry McDevitt stated.
The statement also listed the anonymous former WWE wrestler as “disgruntled” with “no knowledge or facts”.
After the Court appointed a third firm to be lead counsel, WWE provided all three law firms with specific detailed facts from the persons with actual knowledge of the situation, including the phony allegation about the plane. The first two law firms then dropped their lawsuits to avoid sanction motions, but the third firm chose to ignore the specific facts they had been provided, and instead cited an unnamed disgruntled former wrestler with no knowledge of the facts. WWE is preparing its response to the lawsuit and will be moving to have it dismissed.
