Indiana Man Suing The Rock, HHH & WWE Over Alleged Injury

Nick Paglino

The Courier Journal out of Louisville, Kentucky, is reporting that an 18 year old Indiana man is suing WWE, Triple H and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson over an alleged injury that took place at WWE’s 2000 Judgment Day PPV.

The article notes, "An Indiana man has filed a lawsuit against World Wrestling Entertainment, specifically naming former wrestler Dwayne Johnson, known as “The Rock,” and wrestler Paul Levesque, known as “Triple H,” claiming he suffered injuries at a wrestling event in Louisville more than a decade ago when he was 7 years old.

An attorney for Basham, who now is 18, filed the suit in Jefferson Circuit Court on Monday alleging Basham’s right leg and knee were injured at the May 21, 2000, professional wrestling match billed as “Judgment Day.”

As the wrestlers pushed and shoved each other, one collided with an audience member, then shoved that person into the audience toward Basham. The lawsuit alleges that Johnson then pushed that same spectator again into a woman, causing her to fall on Basham, causing his injuries.

The lawsuit accuses the WWE of failing to properly stage the match and provide adequate security for its customers. Both Johnson and Levesque are accused of “reckless, willful and wanton conduct.” You can read the entire article by clicking the above link.
