WWN attorney Samuel Heller issued the following statement after news broke that FloSports was filing a lawsuit against them:
"While we prefer not to litigate cases in the media, it is clear that FloSports is attempting to use the press to create leverage in this dispute by spreading false, defamatory and misleading statements about WWN. In reality, FloSports has wholly failed to honor its contractual obligation to promote WWN's events, and has been unable to successfully integrate WWN into its mismanaged and failing subscription streaming platform. At no time has WWN provided incorrect, false or misleading information and this lawsuit is nothing more than a transparent effort to FloSports to avoid its responsibility to WWN, its talent and its fans. We are confident that the litigation will result favorably to WWN."
The lawsuit (filed in Travis County, TX) alleges that WWN was paid for rights to their live content based on what they later learned were inflated numbers on iPPV and VOD buys. WWN is asking for $1 million in damages.
Ex-WWN employee Joshua Gavin is backing up the claims being made in the lawsuit filed against WWN.
