A ton of ex-WWE wrestlers have been listed as plaintiffs in a lawsuit claiming the company hid long-term effects of brain injuries from them — including Jimmy Snuka and Road Warrior Animal.
The list of names includes: Paul Orndorff, Chavo Guerrero Jr., Bryan Clark aka Adam Bomb, Ahmed Johnson, Kamala, Dave Hebner and Earl Hebner, King Kong Bundy, Ken Patera, Sabu, Ax and Smash, The Berzerker, Shane Douglas, Muhammad Hassan, Henry Godwin, Mark Jindrak, Marty Jannetty, Heidenreich, Mantaur, One Man Gang and the estate of Axl Rotten.
According to Bloomberg — who first reported the story — WWE is accused of failing to care for wrestlers’ repetitive head injuries “in any medically competent or meaningful manner.”
They’re also accused of misrepresenting and concealing the nature of long-term neurological injuries they suffered during their careers.
UPDATE: WWE has responded to the lawsuit … saying, “This is another ridiculous attempt by the same attorney who has previously filed class action lawsuits against WWE, both of which have been dismissed. A federal judge has already found that this lawyer made patently false allegations about WWE, and this is more of the same. We’re confident this lawsuit will suffer the same fate as his prior attempts and be dismissed.”
