– The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that there is a potential class action lawsuit in the works over royalties and the WWE Network. Apparently many former WWE talents are aware of the suit and have expressed interest in getting involved.
The argument has to do with the WWE Network taking the place of DVDs and Blu-rays, causing the revenue from those sources to drop, and the feeling that wrestlers should be entitled to revenue from the replacement.
Doug Somers and Eddie Gilbert’s family have unsuccessfully tried to get royalties from having clips shown on regular WWE TV but The Observer noted that this situation is different.
