The court hearing for Marvin Jackson’s appeal in his lawsuit against WWE, stemming from alleged injuries sustained during his attendance at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas, has been canceled.

According to PWInsider, both Jackson and WWE have been notified that the Court will make a ruling on his appeal without the need for a formal hearing. Unfortunately, there is currently no set timetable for when this ruling will be issued.

Jackson initiated his legal action against WWE on January 12, 2023, by filing a lawsuit in the District Court of Tarrant County, Texas. His claim revolved around the loss of hearing in his left ear, which he attributed to a pyrotechnics explosion that occurred as part of the WWE production during Wrestlemania 38.

In his lawsuit, Jackson sought a jury trial and pursued monetary relief exceeding $1,000,000, encompassing various forms of damages, penalties, costs, expenses, prejudgment interest, and attorney’s fees.


The initial court proceedings resulted in the dismissal of Jackson’s lawsuit with prejudice, indicating that he was prohibited from reviving the same lawsuit within the same court. Undeterred, Jackson took the step of filing an appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

How do you think the cancellation of the court hearing and the prospect of a ruling without a formal hearing will impact the outcome of Marvin Jackson’s lawsuit against WWE regarding his alleged injuries at WrestleMania 38? Let us know in the comments.
