51 brain damaged pro wrestlers sue WWE

51 wrestlers 'who claim the [WWE] hid the long-term effects of neurological injuries from years of being pounded in and out of the ring' have sued the company, according to Bloomberg. Here's the entire list of plaintiffs.

The WWE is accused in the lawsuit of failing to care for wrestlers’ repetitive head injuries "in any medically competent or meaningful manner" and misrepresenting and concealing the nature of long-term neurological injuries they suffered as a result of their careers.

WWE "placed corporate gain over its wrestlers’ health, safety and financial security, choosing to leave the plaintiffs severely injured and with no recourse to treat their damaged minds and bodies," the athletes said in the complaint, which was filed Monday in federal court in New Haven, Connecticut.

“This is another ridiculous attempt by the same attorney who has previously filed class action lawsuits against WWE, both of which have been dismissed,” the organization said in a statement. “A federal judge has already found that this lawyer made patently false allegations about WWE, and this is more of the same.”

No truth to the rumor that a group of steroid dealers were going to sue the WWE as well for 'lost wages' as a result of the aforementioned wrestlers above shortened careers.
