PWInsider have today reported that a multi-figure lawsuit has been filed against WWE in relation to a 2019 traffic incident.
The lawsuit which was filed on June 12 by Jackson Parsons, alleged that he suffered “physical injuries, pain-and-suffering, disability and the inability and loss of the capacity to lead and enjoy normal life, inconvenience, disfigurement, scarring and mental anguish.” According to Parsons, this was as a result of WWE employee Gaitan Thomas driving a van rented by WWE, and then causing some form of an accident between the two, whilst Parsons was riding a bicycle at the time.
