TNA’s top wrestling talent includes veteran wrestler and actor Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. The company says in the lawsuit that WWE appears to have already tried to lure Flair and is pursuing TNA’s other wrestlers.
An attorney for WWE denied the allegations. A message left for TNA’s corporate counsel on Friday was not immediately returned.
The lawsuit, which was filed in Nashville this week, claims that a former TNA employee leaked secret information to WWE, which included the terms of the contracts TNA has with its wrestlers.
