Brain injuries can cause victims to endure a lifetime of neurological disorders. Recently, the WWE was granted approval for a Motion for Reconsideration by the US District Court of the Court of Connecticut. This countersuit pertains to a class action lawsuit filed by former pro wrestlers Evan Singleton and Vito Lograsso who claimed that they suffered brain injuries during their tenure as professional wrestlers. The complaint further alleges that the plaintiffs were not informed about the potential risks of brain injury which can be linked to wrestling stunts that involved head impacts. The plaintiffs also allege that after receiving physical assessments, they were cleared to resume wrestling activities.
Although similar to another lawsuit which was filed by another wrestler, the WWE still denies that this type of injury is caused by wrestling. As a result, the WWE as a professional wrestling organization took counter measures seeking to validate their position by filing a countersuit.
