Nashville's City Paper is reporting that TNA Wrestling has filed a lawsuit against WWE and Brian Wittenstein - a former employee - citing numerous charges on contract tampering.
TNA is claiming that Wittenstein, who worked for TNA before moving to WWE and then getting fired - revealed several contract information of current TNA Superstars and said that it created civil conspiracy and unfair competition under the Tennessee Uniform Trade Secrets Act.
"This wrongful disclosure and misappropriation allows WWE to effectively price TNA out of the market and cause irreparable harm to TNA's business and profitability," the lawsuit reads. "WWE now knows the confidential details of TNA's business affairs including its marketing and business strategy and analysis, which leaves TNA vulnerable to WWE's unfair position in the market."
WWE fired Wittenstein after he came forward with the TNA information but TNA still claims that they were informed by WWE only several weeks after it actually happened.
One major point being raised is that WWE started talking again to Ric Flair after they learned about his contract situation from Wittenstein and Flair now wants to leave the company to allegedly return to WWE. Flair has been off TNA television for several weeks and no party has come out to explain why.
Jerry McDevitt, WWE's top dog attorney said, "Our reaction is that no good deed ever goes unpunished. What the WWE did here is what you would hope any company would do in these circumstances it found itself in."
