Jerry McDevitt is WWE's outside counsel from K&L Gates and has been speaking with TMZ sports about the recent lawsuit.

McDevitt has responded firmly against not only the allegations but also the superstars who are making them.

"being targeted by attorneys who tell them there's hundreds of thousands of dollars they can make by joining a class action suit like this." - McDevitt's claims about what is happening to the former superstars.

As one of the WWE's legal representatives, McDevitt is knowledgeable about the situation but even went further than to say that the superstars are being swayed by attorneys.

Stating that the claims in the lawsuit are fraudulent, he expressed supreme confidence that the WWE will win the legal battle.

"There are almost no details as to what they actually suffered as a result of working with WWE."

Reports have also surfaced that other stars had been approached to join the lawsuit but are under the impression that it is a scam.

McDevitt has also stressed his belief that the lawsuit will spend more time discussing former WWE superstar Chris Benoit and other stars rather than the plaintiffs.
