The wrestling world can be a litigious place sometimes, fans have seen their fair share of lawsuits in the past decades. In the very latest, AEW is getting dragged into legal problems pertaining their website design.
Wrestlenomics’ Brandon Thurston, reports that AEW has been hit with class action complaint. The plaintiff is alleging that All Elite Wrestling, LLC violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The complaint stated that the promotion’s merchandise website, ShopAEW.com lacks accessibility to visually impaired people. As noted by Thurston, a similar complaint was filed against WWE back in 2020, which was later settled.
The plaintiff’s name is Luigi Abreu, but since the complaint is a class action, several others who are visually impaired are also involved in this matter. You can read the full complaint by clicking here.
