What TNA’s Lawsuit Against WWE Means, WWE Reverting Back To WWF?, What’s Wrong With Kevin Nash

Can you explain TNA’s lawsuit against WWE and what it means for both companies?

TNA Wrestling filed the lawsuit against former employee Brian Wittenstein and WWE, alleging that Wittenstein provided WWE with confidential information and trade secrets while he was an employee earlier this year. Prior to the lawsuit being filed in late-May, WWE contacted TNA to let them know that Wittenstein had provided them with confidential information. TNA believes WWE was using the information to obtain Ric Flair (and other wrestlers with expiring deals) and that WWE delayed Wittenstein’s termination by three weeks after obtaining the information. As for what it all means, do not expect WWE to hire anyone that worked for TNA while Wittensten was an employee there until the lawsuit is over. WWE has the money and resources to tie the case up in court for years so who gets hurt is anyone that has worked for TNA that would like a shot in WWE. TNA’s objective is to not only show their roster is of value but that it cannot be poached by WWE when more money is offered.

Do you see WWE going back to being WWF now that the lawsuit World Wildlife Federation filed (now World Wildlife Fund) has been settled?

I do not know the formalities behind WWE’s settlement with the World Wildlife Fund other than WWE no longer has to blur out the old WWF logos. I do not see WWE reverting back to their old name, even if they are allowed to use it, due to the amount of money and resources spent on brand awareness.

What were your thoughts on Kevin Nash’s disrespectful comments about Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero?

Kevin Nash has the right to say whatever he wants although I, along with most, disagree with what he said about Benoit and Guerrero as champions. It’s funny how upset Nash has the ability to make people but I think it all boils down to the fact he’s bored. Nash is sitting around with plenty of money in the bank, looking for something to entertain him. Remember in June when Nash Tweeted he was running Raw only to say social media was his PS3? Nash’s comments keep the emails, Tweets and texts coming and he finds them extremely entertaining.

    I don't get it. If WWE informed TNA that this info. was given to them, basically as a courtesy but most likely to cover their butts, how is there a lawsuit? If WWE didn't tell TNA about this exchange of info. coming from their former employee, how would they have even found out about it otherwise? It really makes no sense to me. I get TNA is trying to protect their contracts, but couldn't WWE find out this info. just by contacting whichever TNA talent that they are interested in and ust ask them? I doubt these contracts are like say the NFL where there are rules against contract tampering or contacting a player that is currently contracted to another franchise. This is more of a dog and pony show for any future investors that might be interested in TNA, but scared of WWE's stroke in the industry.

    Who is brian wittenstein

  • jose

    Nash is a smart man trying to keep his name in the news so he keeps getting paid. Wrestling is an entertainment business built on feuds. if you aren't in a feud nobody cares about you. So Nash started a couple feuds.

    • Hardy

      Granted but I don’t think Guerrero and Benoit were the best wrestlers to use with this tweet. If he had used Bryan or punk I think it would of been more appropriate. I thought Guerrero and Benoit were great in ring performers and hard workers who deserved to be where they were, I think it’s a tad disrepectful to use them to make his point. His point is valid on one hand, larger athletes were used throughout wrestling history but that doesn’t mean they have the best in ring ability or backstage attitude.

  • Andrew

    If WWE did go back to WWF, yes it'd cost a lot of monye and so forth, but IF they did go back to TV14 wouldn't it be better for them to go back as the WWF? I think it'd be a better marketing gimmick, and would bring them more money, basically stating that Attitude is back.

  • Mr.Love

    He said with Benoit and Eddie winning the titles at wrestlemania was the end of the business because of there size? Am I wrong or is HBK almost the exact same size? Don’t get me wrong all 3 are or we’re extremely talented in there own ways and HBK is one of the 3 best of all time. So what’s the difference between them Nash?

    • christopher525

      Shawn is around 6' to 6'1" so he's over the 6 foot mark, Benoit and Guerrero were closer to 5'7" or so, which was usually something that would lump them into the "cruiserweight" division.

  • jdl

    Nash is a douche. He was a douche when he broke, he was a douche when he was on top, he was a douche in TNA and he's a douche now. He will always be a douche, it's in his nature.

  • Chris

    When Nash's character was called 'Big Sexy', in the locker room he was known as 'Big Lazy'.

    • christopher525

      Convenient that it carried over to being what people called Show before his "retirement" to get into boxing.

  • Monty

    Y’all hating on Nash the guy was extremely talented in ring and was a great producer he knows entertainment. Don’t be shocked when hhh takes over wwe that Nash gets a good gig working back stage

    I also have a huge issue with smaller guys winning WHC

    • Kevin

      Uh, are you talking about the same Kevin Nash we are? It doesn't seem so, since you stated that Kevin Nash was extremely talented in ring. The Kevin Nash I watched had less than half the in-ring talent of either Benoit or Guerrero. In fact, on their worst day, either of them could wrestle circles around Nash on his best day.

    • Alex

      Talented in the ring? Have you seen any of this matches. The knee has been blown out since his debut as Oz. Nash is so talentless that he lost his Wrestlemania main event spot to LT.

    World heavy weight does not equal to Rey being the champ when he under 200 pounds. It’s common sense

    • RobUK

      So what is your issue with smaller guys been the champion..? These after all are just story lines, entertainment. If they were not then Big Show would be the champion and no one would ever beat him.

      • Guest

        Exactly, it's like saying "Big show and Kane should only be world heavyweight champions."

  • Alex

    I get that, but sadly out of all of those things the only thing that they are successful at is the wrestling.
