WWE events are renowned for their electrifying atmosphere, often accompanied by spectacular pyrotechnic displays, particularly at larger shows like WrestleMania. However, it seems that the intensity of the explosions was overwhelming for one fan. In an attempt to capitalize on this, they sought legal action against WWE, but it appears their plan didn’t unfold as anticipated. An update on the lawsuit sheds light on the situation.

We previously reported that Marvin Jackson filed a lawsuit against WWE on 1/12, 2023 before the District Court of Tarrant County, Texas alleging that he lost hearing in his left ear while an “invitee” to WrestleMania 38 due to a pyrotechnics blast that occurred as part of the WWE production. Jackson’s lawsuit requested a jury trial and was seeking monetary relief of more than $1,000,000, including damages of any kind, penalties, costs, expenses, prejudgment interest, and attorney’s fees.

The lawsuit was eventually throw out by the Court. According to PWInsider, it was reported that the lawsuit filed by Marvin Jackson against WWE over alleged injuries sustained while attending WrestleMania 38 in Dallas has been ordered back to arbitration.

On March 8th, The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit upheld a previous decision by the District Court of Tarrant County, Texas. This decision supported WWE’s argument that any issues arising from Jackson’s claims would have to be resolved through arbitration. This ruling was based on an agreement Jackson entered into when using the ticket to WrestleMania 38, which was purchased by a relative. We will keep you updated on this ongoing lawsuit.
