According to Yahoo UK, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka and dozens of other retired male and female wrestlers filed the complaint on behalf of more than 50 plaintiffs who have performed with WWE or its predecessors since the 1970s.

The wrestlers accused WWE Chairman Vince McMahon of intentionally classifying wrestlers as “independent contractors” rather than employees, as a means to avoid liability under applicable worker protection laws.

The lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages, as well as improved medical monitoring.

WWE, in a statement, called the lawsuit another attempt to hold it liable by a lawyer who had two earlier lawsuits dismissed.

The company added that “we’re confident this lawsuit will suffer the same fate”.
