Mick Foley announced on Twitter that he’s headed to the SmackDown tapings and that a WWE Superstar is going to start using one of his moves: “Heading to #Smackdown in Bridgeport tomorrow, specifically to pass an iconic Foley offensive move down to a current @WWE Superstar.” - PWInsider.com is reporting that former FCW developmental wrestler Brian “Buck Wild” Jack is suing the company over a number of allegations. Vince McMahon, John Laurinaitis (former head of WWE Talent Relations), Ty Bailey (former VP of Talent Relations), Kristin Actman (who would book extras for WWE TV), Santino Marella, Beth Phoenix, Shed Media USA (Tough Enough company) and Kwik Trip Inc., are all named in the lawsuit. Allegations include: *He “told WWE Corporate about hazing, threats, sexual harassment and more” but was told to “work it out with [FCW head] Steve Keirn.” *Keirn broke his “neck, pelvis, backbone, thumb” and left him with a badly injured right leg that Jack has had to deal with for several years. *That Anthony Carelli (Santino Marella) attempted to get Jack to commit homeowner’s fraud to make an insurance claim and that “WWE” wanted him to get into a “staged car wreck so their developmental insurance wouldn’t take a hit.” *That he reached out to the Hilsborough Police Department in Florida but they “pulled out of a sting” and he later needed to borrow money to get home to Wisconsin. *That after two years of trying to get WWE to fix his leg to no avail, he was contacted and flown down to Dr. James Andrews. Jack claimed that Andrews “checked me for a wire, asked me bizare questions, gave me a MRI, tried to run me through POMCO (workman’s comp), then I was told by knee was still damaged by 1 of the 3 people in the room with Dr. Andrews.” *That he is still being billed and in collections years after he was instructed by WWE to send them the bills after returning from Dr. Andrews. *That WWE “used Shed Media USA to fraud” him into believing he would be on the cast of Tough Enough in order to get him to sign a contract that would release WWE of any and all liabilities “before, during and after” production of the series. Jack claimed that when he brought it to their attention, they promised to send another contract removing that clause and never did. He claimed he never signed the contract because it would release WWE from paying the bills and he would be stuck with the expenses. *Jack is also alleging that he has been slandered via employees of a company titled “Kwik Trip” who were contacted by WWE and that the slander has spread to his friends and landlord.
