Buff Bagwell Files Lawsuit Against WWE

WWE attorneys are certainly being kept busy of late with a number of lawsuits filed by former talent mainly concerning unsafe working conditions and concessions. However, the latest lawsuit filed by former WWE Superstar Buff Bagwell concerns missing royalty payments for matches of his that appear on the WWE Network, according to a report by PWInsider.com.

Bagwell claims when the company purchased WCW 2001, the original deal he signed with WCW transferred and put under contract with WWE. He was signed by WWE in June 2001 and released two months later in August 2001. He also claims he is owed money from a percentage of profits that were supposed to be split among talent.

Bagwell feels as his matches from WCW are being aired on the network that he is owed a portion of the $154.9 million profits which WWE made in the final quarter of 2015. 

WWE has responded with the following statement:

“Bagwell never was promised royalties by either World Championship Wrestling Inc or by WWE for the use of the copyrighted works of World Championship Wrestling, Inc. We will be moving to dismiss the case if it is not voluntarily withdrawn, as it should be.”
