> As noted, former WWE and WCW star Marcus "Buff" Bagwell filed a lawsuit against WWE in US District Court of Connecticut last month, claiming that he is owed royalties for his matches that air on the WWE Network. Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer that Scott Levy, f.k.a. Raven, has joined the suit as a co-plaintiff.

> Meltzer noted the last royalty check that Levy received for the second quarter of 2016 totaled $130.83. It was noted that Bagwell had received royalties for the 2002 Vengeance pay-per-view, even though he wasn't with the company that year and didn't appear on the show. They apparently had other questions that were never addressed regarding Bagwell's royalties. They are claiming that WWE's bookkeeping is questionable, and that they were not able to audit it.

> This is not the first time that Levy has been involved in a lawsuit against the company. In 2008, he joined Mike Sanders and Chris Kanyon in a lawsuit against WWE over the classification of wrestlers as independent contractors. That case was ultimately dropped.

Raven still trying to jew some money out of Vince

>>1752363
bunch of pathetic hacks. Royalty for what? They are not even relevant.

>Raven getting pissy about a couple of hundred freedom dollars
How the mighty have fallen

>>1752443
Raven was never mighty mate, he was glorified jobber.
>>
raven just did a dvd for wwe too
>>
>>1752482
+18

Raven was based miles better than John Cena on the character department, also Benoit vs Raven from Souled out 98 is a better match than the phony Cena big time matches
>>
>>1752363
Unfortunately, as 'independent contractors' the WWE wrestlers signed contracts selling their services for specified prices, with anything not included in those contracts not to be paid for. Repeat broadcasts on the WWE network were not considered then, and so not included in the contracts.

In other words the wrestlers don't have a legal case, and this is a 'nuisance suit' designed to cause the WWE so much trivial bother that it will pay some small 'settlement' to make it go away.
>>
>>1752482
Weird, he was consistently upper-mid in every promotion except WWE.

Really makes you think...
>>
Legit thought Raven was dead
>>
why are all these lawsuits coming at the same time?

even the half brained wrestlers who are suing him for the concussion thing should've known 100% after Benoit that concussions fuck people up
>>
>>1752363
Typical Raven. He did this before. Weird though, he just did a DVD for WWE.

That said, Raven should really be working for a company. I know he doesn't like the biz anymore but dude's actually a genius
>>
>>1752647
A lot of these guys had gotten dozens of concussions pre-Benoit.
>>
>>1752662
I know

but after Benoit would've been prime time to sue vince, or before it even
>>
I love how Ravens is constantly involved in suits against WWE. What a whiny fagboi.

And this shit proves he wasn't a glorified jobber?

>1-time WCW US Champ
>1-time NWA World Champ

>>1752656
>dude's actually a genius

This genius meme again?
>>
>>1752708
Sorry, I genuinely didn't mean to meme. Raven is really good at developing characters and angles. His work in WCW and ECW is proof of this.
>>
>>1752708
How many times have you been invited to join MENSA?
>>
>>1752708
Raven actually knows how to write and book wrestling compared to the failed tv writers of todays WWE
>>
>>1752726
nigga wat r you rambling about?
>>
>Vince getting worked by raven
>>
Buff's still the stuff
>>
>subscription money actually goes to paying every random wrestler that appeared on a PPV
>never mind the current PPVs

How the fuck do they make any money with the network?
>>
>>1752726
Any jabroni with a writing degree can book better shows than wwe. Just look at Lucha underground
>>
>>1753175
Agree with you anon, even if a toddler wrote a roman reigns feud with r truth in wich the payoff is that little jimmy earns a shot at the knidegarden championship, it will be better than today shows
>>
>>1753172
First off, they don't make money with the network, they shot themselves in the foot with that one.

Secondly, pretty sure Buff had a contract that stipulated royalties, most guys don't have it.
>>
>>1753214
>they don't make money with the network
How do you figure?
>>
>>1752363
this is the 3rd time Raven sues Vince, right?
>>
>>1753405
Their incredibly low profits.
