WWE Files Motion to Delay Britney Abrahams’ Racial Discrimination Lawsuit

WWE has filed a motion to delay the racial discrimination lawsuit filed by former writer Britney Abrahams, who was released from the company after taking an unauthorized WrestleMania event chair. Abrahams had filed the lawsuit in April, alleging that WWE and several of its executives, including Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon, subjected her to racist creative pitches and practices. While Abrahams had initially sought to dismiss the suit against the individual defendants, WWE remains the sole defendant in the case.

The latest development came when WWE and Abrahams jointly asked the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York to extend the company’s due date for a response to November 3. According to a report by PWInsider, the court signed off on the extension on August 28.

The lawsuit also alleged that WWE pitched an idea for Shane Thorne to hunt down Reggie like an animal and put him in a cage, an angle that was ultimately never executed. The case is ongoing, and WWE’s efforts to delay the lawsuit will likely be closely watched by fans and commentators.

This is not the first high-profile lawsuit filed against WWE in recent years. In 2020, a former wrestler filed a lawsuit alleging that the company had failed to provide adequate medical care and had covered up the mistreatment of its wrestlers. The stigma surrounding WWE’s handling of its wrestlers and employees has only grown in recent years, and the company’s efforts to delay Abrahams’ lawsuit are likely to be met with skepticism and concern.

The allegations of racism and racial discrimination contained in Abrahams’ lawsuit are particularly concerning, and WWE’s handling of the situation is under intense scrutiny. While the company’s attempts to delay the lawsuit may be seen as a tactic to avoid accountability, it is clear that the matter will not go away anytime soon. As the case continues to unfold, it will be important to examine the allegations and the company’s response to them in detail.

Ultimately, the success or failure of Abrahams’ lawsuit will depend on the evidence presented and the legal arguments made by both parties. However, the allegations at the center of the lawsuit are serious and warrant serious consideration.
