Scott Steiner has filed another lawsuit against TNA Wrestling. The City Paper out of Nashville is reporting that Steiner claims TNA allowed Jeff Hardy to enter the ring during a match at one of their live events on November 3, 2011 in Mount Pleasant, Michigan while under the influence of alcohol and possibly drugs.
Steiner claims he was injured due to Hardy’s reckless, drunken wrestling. In the suit, Steiner cites nerve damage in his shoulder and neck as well as a bicep injury.
The lawsuit states,
“[TNA] knew or should have known that their agent, employee, representative, and/or servant was too incapacitated, intoxicated and/or under the influence of a controlled substance and should not have been allowed to enter the ring thus endangering the life, health, well being and safety of Scott Rechsteiner.”
Steiner claims Hulk Hogan was in charge of Hardy’s actions as well as writing and approving the match. He’s seeking $750,000 in damages, including loss of consortium for his wife.
A hearing involving Steiner’s other lawsuit against TNA was postponed and is scheduled for November 30th.
Hardy was involved in an incident at TNA Victory Road on March 13, 2011 in which he was unable to compete and was booked in an 88-second main event match against Sting.
