TNA vs. WWE This Time It's Judicial!

PostPosted by Longshot » Thu May 24, 2012 11:17 pm

- TNA has filed a lawsuit against WWE and former TNA and WWE employee Brian Wittenstein. The company filed the lawsuit yesterday in Nashville with charges of interference with existing contracts, conversion, breach of contract, civil conspiracy, unfair competition, and violation of the Tennessee Uniform Trade Secrets Act. Wittenstein is also being sued for breach of duty of loyalty.

The suit claims that Wittenstein, who worked for the company for three years from 2008 – 2011, gave WWE inside information on contracts and other details from his time working with the company and that WWE is trying to steal talent from the company via that information. Wittenstein was hired by WWE earlier this year but was let go in April, which TNA claims is after they were presented with the information. However, WWE did not inform TNA that they had been given that information for several weeks.

TNA claims that they were informed of the insider information on May 7th and that several days later, Ric Flair approached TNA trying to get out of his contract so he could go to WWE. The company says Flair hasn't appeared at events since. Alex Shelley, who is rumored to be heading to WWE, was not mentioned in the lawsuit.

An injunction has been issued demanding that WWE and Wittenstein return whatever confidential material Wittenstein obtained from TNA and were specifically instructed not to destroy any of the material. A hearing is set for next month.

I doubt there is any actual "material," but rather that Wittenstein knew when some guys' contracts were ending. Beyond that, I doubt that there was even any real tampering, I'm sure when contract time comes around wrestlers are sending feelers out to WWE, ROH, and Japan as well to see who is willing to shell out cash and guarentee a spot on the roster.

I wouldn't be surprised. I suspect this of almost everyone when I see folks go from one company to a rival. (See IBM v. Apple regarding Mark Papermaster)
