According to reports, the United States Supreme Court declines to hear former World Wrestling Entertainment wrestlers' lawsuits on brain trauma against the WWE. Their lawsuits says, the WWE failed to inform them about the dangers of pro wrestling.
The former WWE wrestlers were hoping to have their cases heard and rendered in their favor. Lower courts dismissed their cases through the years. Many as more than 50 wrestlers have filed lawsuits against the company. The wrestlers are; Billy Jack Haynes, Road Warrior Animal aka Joseph Laurinaitis now deceased, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka now deceased, King Kong Bundy aka Chris Pallies now deceased, the wife of the late Nelson "Viscera" Frazier, and Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff, just to name a few from list.
Snuka and former WWE manager and wrestler Mr. Fuji aka Harry Masayoshi Fujiwara when they died, they both reportedly were diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, from years of blunt force trauma to the head when they wrestled in the WWE.
The Supreme Court, along with lower courts says there are no substantial evidence to suggest the WWE had known the wrestlers having brain trauma when they wrestled for the company. The lawsuit also says the WWE denied the wrestlers in the lawsuit health care and worker's compensation.
According to reports, the WWE says they are glad this is over.
"We're glad its finally over. We're were completely vindicated," says WWE lawyer Jerry McDevitt.
