WWE is currently facing a lawsuit from a former writer who is calling the company out for racist practices and creative angles. Ex WWE writer Britney Abrahams filed this huge lawsuit, and a lot of information is coming out about the company’s creative department right now.
Britney Abrahams called the company out in scathing fashion in the lawsuit she filed. Abrahams was fired from the company after she took home a WrestleMania event chair without permission, but her lawsuit has nothing to do with her termination.
PW Insider reports that, although Britney Abrahams’ lawsuit got a lot of attention, no summons has been issued yet for any defendants in the case. Those names include Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and other WWE executives.
According to court records for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, there has been no lawsuit summons yet issued to any of the defendants in the lawsuit brought against WWE, Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and other WWE executives by former WWE Writer Britney Abrahams last month.
Court records noted that no summons were issued, as “If multiple defendants, there must me a rider attached to the summons with the name and addresses of all defendants included.” As of 5/2, the lawsuit filing had not been updated.
This lawsuit also alleged that an idea was pitched for Shane Thorne to hunt down Reggie like an animal and put him in a cage. That idea never saw the light of day either, but it was detailed in the lawsuit. A racist storyline with Aliyah was also allegedly pitched in the WWE’s writer’s room, which was also mentioned in the lawsuit.
This is a still-developing story, so there might be a lot more to unpack by the time everything is said and done. For more information on this story, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world, stay tuned with us here at Ringside News.
