The following statement was sent out today in response to the concussion lawsuit filed by former WWE talents Big Vito (Vito Lograsso) and Evan Singleton. The story was picked up by mainstream outlets including the New York Times.
Statement From Jerry McDevitt:
“This lawsuit is virtually identical to one filed by the same lawyers in Oregon, neither of which have any merit. WWE has never concealed any medical information related to concussions, or otherwise, from our Talent. WWE was well ahead of sports organizations in implementing concussion management procedures and policies as a precautionary measure as the science and research on this issue emerged. We will vigorously contest this lawsuit.”
