Steiner Files Lawsuit Against TNA Over Match with Jeff Hardy

– Scott Steiner filed another lawsuit against TNA on Monday.

Steiner alleges that TNA allowed an under-the-influence of “alcohol and possibly drugs” Jeff Hardy in their ring during a TNA live event in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.

Steiner claims as a result, he suffered nerve damage to his neck and back as well as an injury to his biceps. Steiner alleges that “[TNA] knew or should have known that their agent, employee, representative, and/or servant was too incapacitated, intoxicated and/or under the influence of a controlled substance and should not have been allowed to enter the ring thus endangering the life, health, well being and safety of Scott Rechsteiner.”

Steiner is seeking $750,000 in damages. As of Monday afternoon, TNA had not been served with the lawsuit yet. There is a hearing set for November 30th where TNA is trying to get Steiner’s first lawsuit dismissed.

    Everytime i hear TNA name it’s’bad publicity or rating droping or releasing talents this is not smelling good for them.They need a major name to back them off like ted turner was to wcw or having in their creative team (paul heyman and tommy dreamer)

    Of course it’s true, the entire world knows Jeff hardly is a junkie even before he left WWE, TNA are in big trouble, i bet they will have a 99.5% off sale for December.

    I wonder if being under the influence of steroids counts?

    Despite the Statute of Limitations allowing for this, it’s a little bit delayed, is it not? Also a bit random, even though Hardy is bit of an easy target.

    If anyone has a great case against Hardy, it’s Sting lol.

    If it’s true he should get a settlement. But it’s probably Steiner being Steiner. TBH, I really do wonder how many times Hardy has gone out there drunk and/or high for a match.
