Promoter Claims Wrestler Filed Discrimination Complaint Against TNA Wrestling

Pro wrestling promoter Phil Varlese, in a statement issued to Gerweck.net, claims that a male participant in the TNA Gut Check Challenge filed a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against TNA Wrestling in April 2013. According to Varlese, the EEDOC found there was enough to move forward with a case but TNA has yet to issue a response.

The wrestler’s name has not been disclosed, according to the statement.  TNA has not responded to multiple requests from the agency.

    Nobody wins in this and if he’s black outside of MMA they may never get a good black wrestler again (Shelton B/MVP). It may be funny it maybe the only reason they there. Just saying love TNA but if it’s trouble it finds TNA.

    Why do they do Gut Check anyway? It’s not entertaining at all.
