Streaming network FloSports has filed a lawsuit against WWN claiming that they were given false information during negotiations.
The lawsuit claims WWN “negligently or otherwise misrepresented the number of fans purchasing pay-per-view and video-on-demand access” and later would claim the data was lost when they were pressed further.
The company is seeking over $1 million dollars in damages for breach of contract and misrepresentation, claiming that the false numbers “robbed” them.
However, WWN claim that FloSports are lying. WWN”s attroney Samuel Heller released the following statement:
“While we prefer not to litigate cases in the media, it is clear that FloSports is attempting to use the press to create leverage in this dispute by spreading false, defamatory and misleading statements about WWN.”
Furthermore, Heller claims FloSports has failed to honor its contract with WWN and the lawsuit “is nothing more than a transparent effort by FloSports to avoid its responsibility to WWN, its talent and its fans.”
Last night, Gabe Sapolosky announced that FloSports was refusing to broadcast the latest Evolve event.
His tweet said the following:
“FloSlam is refusing to broadcast tonight’s EVOLVE event. We apologize, but this is their decision. Please contact them for customer issues.”
It appears based on Sapolosky’s other tweets and the WWN website itself that FloSlam will no longer hold any more events from WWN.
To rectify the situation for their fans as best as they can, WWN are offering half the price off for FloSlam subscribers if they show proof of their prior subscription to FloSlam.
If you would like to get an example as to what Evolve looks like and the competitors inside, we highly suggest watching the following video as William Regal attempts to sign current current WWE Cruiserweight and 205 Live superstar, Tony Nese.
