Former WWE And ECW Star Joins Buff Bagwell's Lawsuit Against The Company

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. 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. Bagwell's lawyers apparently had other questions that were never addressed regarding his 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.
