WWE: Company Getting Sued by TNA!

The Wrestling-Online Newsletter is reporting that TNA Wrestling is filing a lawsuit against WWE and a former WWE employee, Brian Wittenstein. TNA is suing the WWE for “contract tampering”. The Nashville-based promotion is claiming that Wittenstein, who worked for TNA before making his way to the WWE, where he was also fired from, gave WWE officials some contract information about current TNA stars, saying that it created “civil conspiracy” and “unfair competition” under the Tennessee Uniform Trade Secrets Act.

The lawsuit reads that, “This wrong disclosure and misappropriation allows WWE to effectively price TNA out of the market and cause irreparable harm to TNA’s business and profitability. WWE now knows the confidential details of TNA’s business affairs, including its marketing and business strategy and analysis, which leaves TNA vulnerable to WWE’s unfair position in the market.”

WWE fired Brian Wittenstein after Wittenstein informed them of the details of TNA contracts, but TNA claims that the WWE informed them of Wittenstein’s firing several weeks after it happened. One of the major points being brought up is that WWE found out about the contractual status of Ric Flair from Wittenstein and now Flair wants to leave TNA and rejoin the WWE.

WWE’s top attorney, Jerry McDevitt, responded, “Our reaction is that no good deed ever goes unpunished. What the WWE did here is what you would hope any company would do in these circumstances it found itself in.”
