Former superstar urges other wrestlers to join his class action lawsuits against WWE
Two former WWE wrestlers has the company in knee deep trouble. Former WWE, ECW and WCW wrestler “Big Vito” LoGrasso has announced that he and former WWE developmental talent Adam Mercer (real name Evan Singleton) were bringing a class action lawsuit against the WWE in January. They have accused the company of overworking their talent and allowing them to suffer from excess bodily harm.
The post said that anyone from Ohio Valley Wrestling or Deep South Wrestling, both former developmental territories of the WWE are also eligible. Also, the wrestlers who performed as jobbers without a contract are eligible for the same.
LoGrasso’s post alludes to talent being encouraged or forced to receive extensive physical damage with no time to take time off without major consequences. Lo Grasso also mentions that several undisclosed wrestlers are involved in the lawsuit, some of them Hall Of Famer’s. This is what he posted in Facebook asking other wrestlers to join him:
ATTENTION TO ALL FORMER WWF, ECW, WCW, WWE WRESTLERS.
I know all have there view points on this lawsuit. But, if you never stick up for your self, you never know what can be and what cant.If you were in DEEP SOUTH and OVW as a developmental talent, you also have rights. If you have problems and think you need help, Please join the lawsuit I am in litigation in. If you have medical records, you are positively ahead of the game. IF YOU WERE A ENHANCEMENT TALENT IN THE WWF, you also qualify. If you think you are irritating the WWE and think if you join, you will ruin your chances, the bussiness has changed guys, if they have not called you in 5 years, they are not calling you. This is a chance for benefits , the same as in the NFL lawsuit. No one knew, but a Billion dollars divided up for the guys who put there time in and have some issues, now have relief. I am standing up for myself, and all of you. I was never a follower always a leader. So follow me guys and join. I hope the internet guys post this to there sites, TMZ . The WWE will definitely see this and to know that I will be going on TV soon in a tell all, is just proof that you gotta believe in you and the sacrafices you made in life. As you know, you had to be tuff, never say your hurt, if you were , you lost your spot. There are some good people and some WWE HOFers involved and signed on as well. I hope this post makes it back to the right people. I will be heard and know one thing, I dont bulls--t and I speak the truth, when the truth comes out, it isnt a very nice place. Here is the name of the lawyer, his name is Bill Kyros , his number is 1 617 833 3727. Call him and tell him I sent you. Good luck guys and join the fight for rights you deserve. This is a brotherhood that we all seem to have forgotten about.
