WWE have been forced to make a huge statement after the widow of Nelson Frazier Jr. (aka Mabel, Viscera, Big Daddy V) filed a lawsuit against the wrestling company.
In the lawsuit, Nelson Frazier Jr's widow claims that WWE are responsible for the death of her husband, arguing that the brain trauma and concussions he suffered during his time in WWE were responsible for his untimely death.
However, her lawsuit has clear holes in it, especially when you consider that Frazier died because of a heart attack, which could easily be attributed to the fact that he was morbidly obese.
WWE in denial
Safe to say, Vince McMahon and the WWE are not happy about this situation, with The Wrestling Observer reporting that WWE will "vigorously" contest any lawsuit that is issued against them.
"WWE has not been served with a lawsuit by Cassandra Frazier. If served, we will vigorously contest this lawsuit brought by the same lawyers who have been soliciting people to sue WWE without merit," Dave Meltzer reported, according to cagesidedseats.com.

It's quite a statement for the WWE to suggest - according to Meltzer - that the lawsuit is without merit. It has been a year since he died and it's likely that his widow has spent a significant amount of time with lawyers drawing up the claims against WWE.
It remains to be seen whether or not this all goes to court, but if it does, WWE will certainly be fighting tooth and nail to clear their name.
Not the only problem
This is not the only problem WWE has at the moment, with wrestling company also under cloud after it was revealed that a WWE doctor is suing CM Punk for his comments on Colt Cabana's podcast.
Dr. Christopher Amann has filed a $1 million lawsuit against Punk for the comments after claiming they have damaged his reputation as a doctor.
