    Blind love for wwe is sick imo. discriminated against is against the law period. He will win, just like Daffney will win her case against TNA. It’s only fair

    Wasn’t there a situation with a form of Hep years ago with Bob Orton bleeding in handicapped matches with him & Randy vs Taker ? If I remember correctly after Taker found out he went ballistic.

    What a moron. I love how he chooses the word ‘descriminated’ as if it was some act of disease profiling. After he loses this case, hopefully to David Otunga holding a coffee, I’m sure he will defend his loss by saying the judge and jury were being diseasist.

    They discriminated against him because he has hep C?
    Thats not discrimination, thats common sense.
    In an industry like the wrestling business, you cannot risk wrestling with someone who has hep C.
    All it takes is a small wound, and then your opponent risks catching it.
