- TheIndyChannel.com reports that WWE has been named as a defendant in a lawsuit from the family of a woman who died after attending the 2008 WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view in Indianapolis. That pay-per-view ended with The Undertaker setting the ring on fire after his match with Edge.
The woman, 36 year old Susan Prim, told her family she was having trouble breathing so they left the arena. The woman collapsed, passed out and her son told the paper that her brain damage was so severe, she went from respiratory arrest to cardiac arrest and died. Her death is listed as a severe asthma attack and the lawsuit blames WWE's pyro after the main event. WWE along with the Conseco Fieldhouse, the Indiana Pacers, the pyro company and 16 other defendants have been named in the lawsuit.
