As reported by the Associated Press, the WWE concussion lawsuit being overseen by Konstantine Kyros is being brought up to the Supreme Court after previous appeals were denied.
The lawsuit, which features over 50 pro wrestlers (including the likes of Road Warrior Anima, King Kong Bundy, and Jimmy Snuka), has repeatedly failed in past legal attempts. Back in 2018, federal judge Vanessa Bryant found that there was no evidence that WWE knew that blows to the head caused chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Kyros was also criticized by the judge for not cooperating under court rules and ordered him to pay the WWE’s legal fees.
Kyros attempted to appeal the decision but was denied by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City. Kyros believes that the wrestlers have been “deprived of their fundamental rights as US Citizens, including their right to appeal.”
