Vince McMahon

Multiple sources are reporting that WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon was deposed today in the ongoing concussion lawsuit against WWE that has been filed by former WWE Superstars Vito Lo Grasso and Evan Singleton. Along with McMahon, Dr. Chris Amann, Stephanie McMahon, and former WWE Superstar and head of the Concussion Legacy Foundation, Christopher Nowinski, were also deposed today. Dr. Joseph Maroon was deposed back on May 20th, and Triple H is scheduled to be deposed next Tuesday.

It was argued by WWE that Stephanie should not be included due to the fact that other employees were already made available by the company. This resulted in the judge making the following ruling:

“WWE made Levesque available previously to testify before Congress on issues related to the safety of its wrestlers. Although the Court rejected Plaintiff’s fraudulent misrepresentation claims on the basis of that testimony, WWE has not demonstrated that Levesque is not an appropriate deponent on the issues of whether WWE had a duty, and whether that duty was breached, to disclose knowledge of long term health risks caused by repeated head trauma. The parties are ordered to work cooperatively to schedule a deposition based on the witness’ availability, which may be conducted up to fourteen days after the current discovery deadline.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
