Scott Steiner sues TNA, claims fellow wrestler was drunk in ring

Monday, November 5, 2012 at 5:40pm

Pro wrestler Scott Steiner is heading to the courtroom against his former employer, Nashville-based Total Nonstop Action Entertainment, for the second time this year.

Steiner was sued by TNA in May after he wrote disparaging comments toward fellow wrestler Hulk Hogan on Twitter.

This time, Steiner claims TNA allowed wrestler Jeff Hardy to enter the ring during a match last year in Mount Pleasant, Mich., while under the influence of alcohol and possibly drugs.

According to the lawsuit filed in Davidson County Circuit Court, Steiner suffered nerve damage in his shoulder and neck as well as a bicep injury due to what he called Hardy’s reckless, drunken wrestling.

The lawsuit states, “[TNA] knew or should have known that their agent, employee, representative, and/or servant was too incapacitated, intoxicated and/or under the influence of a controlled substance and should not have been allowed to enter the ring thus endangering the life, health, well being and safety of Scott Rechsteiner.”

Steiner also claims Terry Bollea, better known as Hulk Hogan, was in charge of Jeff Hardy’s actions along with “writing and approving the script for the match.”

Steiner is seeking $750,000 in damages, including loss of consortium for his wife.

A hearing involving a motion to dismiss in Steiner’s Twitter feud lawsuit is set for Nov. 30 in Davidson County Chancery Court.

TNA had not been served with the lawsuit as of Monday afternoon.

It's a stage play, & each actor knows his lines.
