Update: Since publishing this story, WWE has sent the following statement to WZ:

“This is another ridiculous attempt by the same attorney who has previously filed class action lawsuits against WWE, both of which have been dismissed.  A federal judge has already found that this lawyer made patently false allegations about WWE, and this is more of the same.  We’re confident this lawsuit will suffer the same fate as his prior attempts and be dismissed.”
