Marvin Jackson brought legal action against WWE in January. He claimed in his lawsuit that being too close to the fireworks at WrestleMania last year caused him to lose his hearing. WWE has made an effort to transfer the action from Tarrant County, Texas to the Northern District of Texas federal court.
Additionally, the business has argued that arbitration should be used because that is what fans agree to when they buy tickets to a WWE event. Last Friday, Jackson’s attorney responded to those efforts by outlining a rather straightforward defence for why he is exempt from those conditions. There are just two fundamental facts that Jackson is agreeing to in order to make his case for avoiding private arbitration proceedings.
The first is that the tickets were a gift from his nephew. He did not acquire them as a result, and he did not assent to the terms at the time of purchase. Second, he was never in actual physical possession of the tickets. He never had copies of the digital files he used; they were stored on his nephew’s phone. WWE is requesting that the lawsuit be put on hold while arbitration takes place in the interim.
Pyrotechnic fireworks have been a staple of WWE events for many years, with major events like WrestleMania on their schedule featuring much larger presentations than usual. For a while, WWE actually abandoned pyro in an effort to reduce expenses. That break was brief, though, and fireworks were brought back on a regular basis once more in 2019.
The “American Nightmare” discussed what kind of schedule he would prefer if he wins at the “Show of Shows.” which will soon feature Cody Rhodes versus Reigns, as well as how it would feel to finally win the WWE championship. In “Stadium Astro,” Rhodes commented, “That would imply vindication.” “At what time will it all be over? If I win the WWE Undisputed Universal Title, will that be the end?
Or will it be the end if I win the championship, take it everywhere I can, and perform and deliver at a level no champion has done in a long time? I want to cut a schedule like Ric Flair or Bret Hart. With a somewhat “less is more” schedule, I want to accomplish something very different from what contemporary champions have done. “More is the kind of schedule I want.”
