• Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against AEW For Violating The Americans With Disabilities Act

A class action lawsuit has been filed against AEW for not making their shop website equally accessible to everyone.

Plantiff Luigi Abreu claims that All Elite Wrestling violated the Americans With Disabilities act because the AEW Shop website “is not equally accessible to blind and visually-impaired consumers.”

Luigi, who is a visually-impaired and legally blind person, requires a screen-reading software to read the contents of a website.

Luigi now wants to bring this lawsuit “for declaratory relief, injunctive relief and compensatory damages—including statutory and punitive damages—against defendant named herein, and alleges based upon the personal knowledge of plaintiff, the investigation of counsel, and upon information and belief.”

He attempted to purchase something from AEW’s shop in April. He is looking for a jury trial.

WWE faced a similar case back in 2020, where they settled out of court for an undisclosed amount of money.
