WWE Star ‘Pursuing Legal Action’ Following May 23 Show

WWE Star ‘Pursuing Legal Action’ Following May 23 Show WWE

A WWE NXT star is pursuing legal action against another following last night’s (May 23) episode of NXT.

On last night’s show, WWE debuted it’s new lawyer character, Luca Crusifino, who took on Von Wagner in singles action.

The match came about after Wagner had attacked Crusifino backstage last week for calling him a freak.

This came after weeks of a mysterious picture of Von Wagner being discovered by Mr. Stone, who has been interrogating Wagner for an answer.

During Crusifino and Wagner’s match on last night’s show, Crusifino stole the photo from Stone, again calling Wagner a ‘freak’ before Wagner got himself disqualified.

The segment ended with Wagner delivering a vicious Powerbomb on the table to Crusifino.

After the show, Crusifino took to Twitter, informing us that he would be taking legal action against Mr. Wagner after the events.

He said:

Statement from Crusifino Law:

Mr. Crusifino sustained a neck injury this evening. Furthermore, we are determined to pursue legal action against Mr. Wagner to the fullest extent the law permits. This incident is a direct result of Von’s negligence and he will be held accountable.

You can see the clip of the Powerbomb below.
