It's been a week of lawsuits for the WWE, and before I go any further, I have no legal expertise. I'm writing this to share my opinion (or My 1-2-3 Cents). I figure most of you know that, but I don't want there to be any confusion.
The widow of Nelson Frazier, who fans know as Viscera, Big Daddy V and King Mabel has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the WWE. Frazier died of a heart attack in February 2014. He was only 43 years old. Cassandra Frazier's suit alleges her husband's heart attack was caused by "WWE's willful, wanton, reckless and grossly negligent" practices.

|Billy Jack Haynes gets busted open|
Former WWE Superstar Billy Jack Haynes filed a lawsuit in November, blaming the company for his current health problems. Haynes has depression, early signs of dementia, Hepatitis C and various liver and kidney troubles. Haynes worked for WWE for two years in the late 80's. He too had wrestled years before and after WWE. But because the WWE is "the last company standing" there's no one else to blame (or pay up). I'm not saying Haynes never suffered the injuries. He says he had 15 concussions in his career. Wrestling was less protective of its competitors in that era. But three decades later, why is WWE to blame?
