Detroit wrestler Scott Steiner files lawsuit against TNA
Scott Carl Rechsteiner, better known by his professional wrestling name, Scott Steiner, has filed a lawsuit against wrestling promoter Total Nonstop Action Wrestling after sustaining injuries in the ring at the hands of his opponent at a live event in Mount Pleasant.
The 24-year wrestling veteran’s suit claims that his opponent, Jeff Hardy, was under the influence of drugs or alcohol during their match. Steiner asserts he suffered injuries including nerve damage to his neck and back as a result of Hardy’s alleged inebriation. He also sustained an injury to his biceps, which are a major component of his claim to fame.
The lawsuit contends that Hardy should not have been allowed to wrestle in the condition he was in and that the wrestling organization put Rechsteiner’s health in jeopardy by allowing Hardy to perform while intoxicated. The suit, filed earlier this week, seeks a total of $750,000 in damages.
