WWE filed its latest response to MLW’s lawsuit on August 14th while confirming that Stephanie McMahon met with a Tubi executive in August of 2021.

WWE, however, denied that McMahon pressured Tubi to deny MLW a timeslot.

MLW has alleged that McMahon spoke with an executive and “initially pressured the Tubi executive to deny MLW a time slot that would compete head-to-head with WWE’s NXT programs on Tuesday nights. But Ms. McMahon ultimately pressured the Tubi executive and other senior executives at Fox to terminate the agreement in its entirety” by threatening that Fox could lose WWE’s business if they didn’t adhere to WWE’s demands.

WWE’s filing reads:

“WWE admits that, on or about August 9, 2021, Stephanie McMahon spoke with a Tubi executive. WWE denies the allegations in the second, third, and fourth sentences of Paragraph 100. The allegations in the fifth sentence of Paragraph 100 refer to and purport to interpret a document not cited in or attached to the FAC. As such, WWE lacks knowledge or information sufficient to form a belief as to the truth of the allegations in the fifth sentence of Paragraph 100. WWE therefore denies the allegations in the second sentence of Paragraph 100. Furthermore, the referenced document speaks for itself. WWE respectfully refers the Court to the full cited document for its language and complete contents, and otherwise denies the allegations in the fifth sentence of Paragraph 100.”
