Then there's the situation between R. Bruce Tharpe and the NWA, specifically Robert Trobich. In what many describe as a hostile takeover attempt by R. Bruce Tharpe has filed a lawsuit against the National Wrestling Alliance. Tharpe is a personal injury lawyer who has promoted wrestling shows in Brownsville, TX under the Lucha Americana, NWA World Class Wrestling, and NWA Southwest banners.
The claim alleges insurance fraud, in that the NWA "misrepresented themselves to insurance companies and put promoters at risk by doing so". Different NWA affiliate members (in the Philadelphia/New Jersey region, including NWA Coastal) have an option to cover their events using insurance provided by the NWA, which is underwritten by the NWA's insurance company. The insurance covers up to 100 fans. Tharpe has portrayed this as "misleading" given that many NWA affiliate members shows typically draw more than this number.
There is apparently no requirement that the NWA affiliate members use this insurance plan, and members are welcome to decline it and to find their own coverage. The NWA further states that no claims have been paid on the policy.
Here's the key. Tharpe is seeking fairly nominal damages ($49,000) and he is also hoping to have the current Executive Director of the NWA Robert Trobich as well as the Board of Directors removed and a new regime put in their place.
In various stories regarding this lawsuit, Tharpe has made various claims against Trobich, many of which have nothing to with the wrestling business. He does make one claim alleging an NWA member promoter who is on the Board of Directors has a heavy duty arrest record.
This one's going to get really fun, folks. More will be discussed as it is reported.
Until next time...
