• WWE’s Lawyer Responds To ‘Phony’ Allegation Made By A Former WWE Wrestler On Heat Between Vince McMahon & Saudi Crown Prince

As we noted earlier, an anonymous former WWE wrestler said that the WWE crew’s plane was stopped by guards due to heat between Vince McMahon and the Saudi Crown Prince, Muhammad Bin Salman, after Crown Jewel 2019.

In a statement to Forbes, WWE’s lawyer Jerry McDevitt responded to the allegations:

“These false allegations were originally made in two suits filed by two different law firms.

After the Court appointed a third firm to be lead counsel, WWE provided all three law firms with specific detailed facts from the persons with actual knowledge of the situation, including the phony allegation about the plane.

The first two law firms then dropped their lawsuits to avoid sanction motions, but the third firm chose to ignore the specific facts they had been provided, and instead cited an unnamed disgruntled former wrestler with no knowledge of the facts.

WWE is preparing its response to the lawsuit and will be moving to have it dismissed.”
