TNA has filed a lawsuit against Scott Steiner for his recent disparaging comments about TNA, Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan via his Twitter account.
TNA’s claim is that Steiner’s last contract, which expired at the end of last year, had a clause that stated that he could not “make any statements or provide information, written, verbal or otherwise, which directly or indirectly disparages or casts in a negative light any TNA officers, employees, representatives, affiliates, shareholders, licensees and/or past or current TNA talent.”
It is unclear, however, whether this clause still counts as Steiner is no longer under contract with TNA.
The lawsuit reads as follows: “In blatant disregard of the parties’ Agreeement, Steiner has engaged in a concerted effort to disparage TNA, its wrestlers, and other talent and cast hem in a negative light.”
