PWInsider reports that nobody within TNA wants to talk about the lawsuit, in private or on the record.
The lawsuit claims that former TNA employee Wittenstein leaked information to WWE, including terms of TNA wrestler contracts. WWE lawyer Jerry McDevitt told the AP that WWE did not try to lure Ric Flair or any other contracted TNA talent. McDevitt says WWE never asked Wittenstein to disclose the information and when he did, they fired him and then sent the information back to TNA. McDevitt told the AP:
"To us, it's no good deed goes unpunished kind of thing. They sued us for doing the right thing."
The AP tried to reach TNA's lawyers and Wittenstein for comment but phone calls were not returned. A hearing on the matter is set for June 11th.
