Vito & Evan Singleton File Concussion Lawsuit Against WWE

Former WWE wrestlers Vito LoGrasso and Evan Singleton (who worked in developmental as Adam Mercer) have filed a potential class-action lawsuit against the company.

The suit, filed in federal court in Philadelphia, states as follows:

"Under the guise of providing entertainment, the WWE has, for decades, subjected its wrestlers to extreme physical brutality that it knew, or should have known, caused created latent conditions and long-term irreversible bodily damage, including brain damage,"

It’s stated that Singleton is disabled because of brain trauma he suffered while wrestling. The lawsuit states that Vito suffers from migraines, memory loss, depression and deafness after nearly a decade with WWE.

The lawsuit alleges that WWE is downplaying the seriousness of the head injuries and is discouraging Singleton from seeing a neurologist.

The suit seeks unspecified economic damages and medical monitoring.

    Where is Vito getting nearly a decade from, is he adding in his WCW & ECW days into that total.

      Why wouldn’t he. They are owned by wwe

      • HLG

        Maybe because whatever injuries he sustained in WCW and ECW have zero to do with WWE. If he’s going to lie about something as little as the amount of time he spent with the company, he isn’t going to get very far against WWE’s lawyers.

          That is like sayin you own and have issues with a Chevy but General motors has nothing to do with it. WWE IS the Parent company that owns both of the other 2 now

    i would say most of vitos problems were caused in the matches/brawls he had in the original ecw not wwe. new jack hitting you in the head with various objects , cutting you and jumping on you from a balcony on a nightly basis cant be good for your longterm health . from what i remember vito was only in wwe for a cup of coffee and parading around in a dress

  • Mysterion

    And yet Vito still wrestles…
