More Details on TNA’s Lawsuit Against WWE, Another Hearing Set for Next Month

– Representatives from WWE and TNA had a conference yesterday regarding TNA’s lawsuit against WWE. There is a temporary injunction hearing set for July 11th. TNA still has a temporary restraining order against Brian Wittenstein and WWE. There was a big process where WWE’s servers, the laptops of John Laurinaitis and others were looked at by WWE IT for any wrongdoing. IT reported back that the TNA information from Wittenstein was not found on his company provided Blackberry or laptop. IT also went through their servers and e-mail boxes of 27 employees that worked in creative and talent relations. They did not find that the information from Wittenstein had been sent out over their servers.

Once the lawsuit was filed by TNA, WWE says they did due-diligence, searched again and concluded that the TNA information from Wittenstein was never on their servers or used by their employees. They noted that the laptop and e-mail server used by John Laurinaitis was also checked and the information was never on there. WWE feels TNA has no basis for a lawsuit, based on those searches. WWE says they never had the information from Wittenstein and the only time it was seen was when Wittenstein brought them a print out and a CD with information he had collected while working for TNA.

TNA wants the situation resolved immediately. They feel that they have been wronged, damage has been done and they want to make sure no talent problems come out of this. They wanted statements from Triple H, John Laurinaitis and others yesterday but likely scheduling conflicts are putting that on hold. While the case has been continued, both WWE and TNA are still under the court order that was previously set.

PWInsider reports that Wittenstein has not been served the lawsuit yet. People that have spoken to Wittenstein say they felt no sense of alarm or worry from him. Wittenstein does have a lawyer that TNA has been in contact with but he was not represented in court yesterday, for what it’s worth.

    and the match at border wars between Davey Richards and Kevin Steen for the ROH World Title wasnt bad either

  • ant

    cant believe u just called roh stale i just saw a 5 star match between the briscoe brothers and the worlds greatest tag team that was AWESOME

  • Chris

    The only reason wwe talks about ROH is because they are not competitors to WWE where as WWE never say a thing about TNA because they are the only wrestling competitors that they have.

  • Tyler(:

    ant, AAA and NJPW are awesome, but ROH’s stale, it’s like the internet fans love shack, no wrong can be done there, so after reading that many ass-kissing comments about ROH on sites then watching the show, I find myself bored.

    and CZW sucks, I just like abit of hardcore now and again. and I only like DGUSA because I can’t find no others like Chikara, PGW or Japanease/Mexican promotions over here easily.

  • cenaWWE

    Well said Tyler! 100% agree people learn some new words

  • ant

    Tyler i like all promotions i just hate when people be like oh WWE tried to cheat TNA out of there talent like stfu with that already ya know and no offense but both promotions u listed suck ROH,AAA,and NJPW are better

  • Tyler(:

    The comment section should just be removed, all it is is WWE Fans calling TNA guys marks. and TNA Fans calling WWE guys marks. and then petty arguements.

    TNA Fans – learn other words than Cena.
    WWE Fans – learn other thing apart from WWE.

    Fuck both them companies, abit of DGUSA and CZW will do better.

  • ant

    u think WWE wants TNA talent sooooo bad that they would risk a lawsuit like Vince Mcmahon a guy who bought WCW and was smart enough to create the attitude era to win the monday night wars really cares about TNA,in the words of The Miz, Really?

  • ant

    @bawb shut up and go suck hogan and eric bischoffs dick why dont ya
    @chris so this one guy breaks the law and all of a sudden the ENTIRE WWE breaks the law well i guess we see which organization u like dont we,and are retarted it dosent matter because regardless its not like vince and hunter said hmmmm Wittenstein how bout u give us some inside info TNA the real LOL is the fact that u think WWE cares about TNA like cmon man THEY DONT EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE as legitimate competitors like at all like ive heard WWE acknowledge ROH before but never ever have they even made mention of TNA and u know why…….BECAUSE THEY DONT CARE ABOUT THEM and im not even WWE mark and i realize that so how u and Bawb gon say otherwise when u know its the truth

  • No Name Required

    I’ve been watching deadwood a lot lately and I think they should have an old fashioned shoot out. By that I mean five independent experts watch eight matches 3 TNA, 3 WWE, one ROH, and one other Indy promotion. The experts say their favorite match if WWE wins they get three TNA stars if TNA wins they get the money and if ROH or the Indy wins they get WWE or TNA’s time slot on tv.

  • Chris

    LOL WWE broke the law and TNA are the bad guys. Only in the mind of WWE hardcore fans can this be a reality.

    Also bigger LOL at the fact that it was WWE IT workers that did the checking. What a joke

    As a law worker I would have filed an STA on them and had all of there info taken into court and checked via by a third party IT person. That would have been the only fair thing to do.

  • Bawb

    Lol WWE marks disliking my opinion. I don’t like TNA, but this site has got some people who are almost childishly vindictive of their organization, as if they know everything that’s happening behind the scenes.

  • ant

    why do people think that WWE NEEDS TNAs crappy information like half the guys on TNAs roster have been with WWE already and plus the guys in TNA that are actually good WWE dosent even want which is kinda dumb but still

  • Bawb

    Honestly, it really wouldn’t surprise me if WWE did indeed do some dirty shit or had some sort of unofficial talk with this guy. You never really know. TNA does seem to be on its way out, though.

  • cheesehandler

    Tna’s like a prostitute ….they’ll do whatever they need to do to get that all mighty dollar.

  • xXx

    if wwe clears this up, does this mean they could file a counter? end of tna much?

    they just want HHH’s autograph..
