WWE attorney Jerry McDevitt is fiercely defending the company against Konstantine Kyros. Kyros is the lawyer behind a series of aggressive lawsuits recently filed against WWE. One of those lawsuits is the wrongful death lawsuit filed on behalf of Nelson Frazier Jr. (formerly known as Big Daddy V and Viscera).
Below is an excerpt of McDevitt’s comments published on BostonHerald.com:
“They just ignore these things and allege whatever they feel like alleging,” McDevitt said. “You can’t do that as a lawyer. You have to be basing your allegations on a reasonable investigation of the facts. It’s not some creative writing exercise to see if you can get media attention.”
“It’s an embarrassment to be a lawyer sometimes,” McDevitt said. “It’s ridiculous that someone can ... try to blame someone because a gentleman with a weight problem died of a heart attack in the shower eight years after he last performed. It’s ridiculous to try and blame someone for that.”
