Source: SLAM! WrestlingSLAM! Wrestling reports that independent wrestler Devon Nicholson has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against WWE, claiming that they wrongfully cut him from his developmental deal. Nicholson is the same wrestler that's been in the news this year after claiming that WWE Hall of Famer Abdullah the Butcher gave him Hepatitis C.
Nicholson filed the lawsuit back on August 26th in Canada, and it was served to WWE on September 26th. He is seeking damages from WWE for Wrongful dismissal and/or breach of contract at $600,000, aggravated and punitive damages at $5 million and damages for injury to dignity and self-respect at $250,000.
Nicholson was released from his developmental deal back in August of 2009, after being signed in June of that year. WWE claimed his release was due to licensing situations but he believes it's because of his Hepatitis C.
