TNA Drops Lawsuit Against WWE

Via WNW

Quote:
TNA Wrestling’s lawsuit against WWE was dismissed in a Nashville, TN court on Wednesday. TNA filed the motion for dismissal, stating terms had been reached by all parties and they agreed to drop the litigation. Legal fees were paid by the respective parties.

TNA filed the lawsuit in May 2012, alleging former office employee Brian Wittenstein provided WWE with confidential information and trade secrets. The litigation claimed WWE used the information in an attempt to poach their roster.

As a result, WWE initiated a hiring freeze where they would not hire anyone with an expiring TNA contract. Not only that but WWE refused to hire anyone that had been employed by by TNA Wrestling while Wittenstein was an employee there.

This is believed to be the reason why Ric Flair is appearing on WWE TV without a contract and why some TNA names re-signed rather than attempting to go to WWE, despite interest in their services.
this also confirmed by Observer & PWInsdier

Both of your statements in that sentence contradict each other, and are pretty wrong.

TNA taps out? Welp, who cares really, it was hard to prove the allegation anyhow. They were probably looking for a settlement.

Okay cool, but I didn't even say I was right in the first place, I think your so wrong about how right you thought you were about how wrong I was.

TNA are a business trying to protect their interests, dropping a lawsuit that they settled with isn't a sign of weakness, nor is forming one in the first place.
