It seems that another controversy in WWE is always just around the corner. Despite the wrestling company's continued growth in certain areas, there has been and will always be a fair amount of disasters on the horizon for WWE.

Vince McMahon is a veteran at handling these issues, and the latest one he will have to sort out is one that consists of three former WWE talents suing his company.

As we reported last week, Luther Reigns, Ryan Sakoda and Big Russ McCullough are the stars who have filed a lawsuit against the WWE, and the development is certainly something that will frustrate Chairman Vince McMahon.

Shocking details

But what we couldn't report last week was the finer details of the lawsuit, details that will likely frustrate WWE fans as well as Vince McMahon.

"[Ryan] Sakoda claims he and other talents were "forced to wrestle injured or you lost your job" and that WWE did not discuss or treat concussions," NoDQ reported over the weekend.

"Sakoda alleges that WWE is operated by "intimidation and abuse" and that WWE disregarded his health and safety to the point that it left him traumatized."

Damages WWE's reputation

Of course this is an on-going lawsuit situation, so we cannot debate the merits of whether or not Sakoda and the other two wrestlers have a chance of winning in court.

But the one thing that can't be denied is the severity of these claims and the fact that they well and truly shine bad light on WWE. Vince will be hoping his lawyers win the battle in court, but the reputation of his company will take another hit regardless.

After reading about the lawsuit, many fans have got in touch with GiveMeSport and voiced their concerns about the lawsuit via the comments section. The common consensus seems to be that these stars signed a contract in the past with WWE knowing fully well the rigors of working for the wrestling company.

But these views might not be the feelings that are shared by every WWE fan, so feel free to voice your opinions in the comments section below.
