WWE has issued a statement in response to the class-action “concussion lawsuit” filed by former wrestlers Vito Lograsso and Even Singleton (Adam Mercer in developmental).
For more information on the lawsuit and what they are alleging, check out our initial report.
WWE lawyer Jerry McDevitt issued the following statement in response to the lawsuit:
“This lawsuit is virtually identical to one filed by the same lawyers in Oregon, neither of which have any merit. WWE has never concealed any medical information related to concussions, or otherwise, from our Talent. WWE was well ahead of sports organizations in implementing concussion management procedures and policies as a precautionary measure as the science and research on this issue emerged. We will vigorously contest this lawsuit.”
