In a shocking turn of events, a fan has filed a lawsuit against the WWE after claiming to have gone deaf in his left ear following a pyrotechnics blast at Wrestlemania 38 last year.
The fan, identified as John Doe, is suing the WWE for negligence, claiming that the company failed to provide a safe environment for its fans. According to the lawsuit, Doe was seated in the front row of the stadium when the pyrotechnics went off, causing him to suffer a “severe and permanent” hearing loss in his left ear.
The lawsuit alleges that the WWE was aware of the potential risks associated with pyrotechnics, but failed to take adequate safety precautions. It also claims that the company failed to provide adequate warning to fans about the potential risks of the pyrotechnics.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for Doe’s medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. It also seeks punitive damages, which are intended to punish the WWE for its alleged negligence.
The WWE has yet to comment on the lawsuit, but it is likely that the company will vigorously defend itself against the allegations. The company has a long history of providing a safe environment for its fans, and it is unlikely that it would have knowingly put its fans at risk.
It remains to be seen how the lawsuit will play out, but it is a reminder of the potential risks associated with pyrotechnics. Fans should always be aware of their surroundings and take appropriate safety precautions when attending live events.
