WWE Files Lawsuit Against U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services
WWE reportedly recently filed a lawsuit against the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services, according to PWInsider.
Mike Johnson reported that WWE filed the lawsuit on January 26th to the United States District Court of Connecticut.
Johnson reported that while nature of the lawsuit is currently sealed, it is currently speculated that this has to do with the company’s issues with getting talent or employees into the country due to issues involving the previous Trump Administration’s immigration policies. Johnson also reported that WWE is currently being represented by immigration attorney Martine G. Cuomo.
As of Thursday, court records reportedly revealed that the U.S.C.I.S. had yet to be served with the lawsuit and any amended pleadings need to be filed by March 27th.

As noted before, Tegan Nox has been away from WWE and their NXT brand since this past September due to her suffering a torn ACL injury. This was the third time Nox has suffered an ACL injury since signing with the company in April of 2017.
A recent episode of WWE’s The Bump show had Tegan Nox as a guest and one of the topics discussed included Nox providing an update regarding the current status of her knee injury rehab.
“I feel good. I feel strong, which is nice. A nice little change from being on crutches a few weeks ago. I feel really good. Recovery is going very well. I’m way ahead of where I should be, which is good. It’s helped that I’ve gone through this three times now.”
