Scott Steiner Suing TNA For Allowing Jeff Hardy To Wrestle Intoxicated

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.

    I'm actually really growing to like Scott Steiner again, something that hasn't been the case since he had long hair and wore Michigan jackets. He's like an Ultimate Warrior for the TNA generation – freakish physique, incomprehensible promos, frivolous lawsuits and the ability to hold a grudge against a past employer long after everyone else stopped caring. I too hope he wins, not to scam TNA but just to see what he comes up with next. As for the loss of consortium part, the poor girl probably needed a break.

    PS – bring back the Professor's Pulpit (or something similar)!

    I think the man has a very valid law suit, and a very good point!

    Clever move by Steiner

  • BigMike

    Steiner is a drama queen who needs some money because he is not worth a damn anymore BUT TNA should have nipped the Problems with Hardy LONG before any kind of "incident" with Steiner or the match with Sting

    I love the pics you select for these stories!

  • Sjenttivensventa

    Another scumbag washed up wrestler no one cares about trying to get money cause no one wants to see him wrestle

    Now i do agree with scott that a wrestler shouldn't be allowed into a ring if he is under the influence of a controlled substance or intoxicated, but he is the last person to talk, he looks like a walking advertisement for performance enhancing drugs, and if you don't believe that he takes steroids then i suggest you take your head out of the sand and took a good look around you

    I hope Steiner wins..serves them right to allow Hardy to do that.
