As per Mike Johnson over at PWInsider, a lawsuit was filed against WWE on 12 June 2021 relating to an alleged traffic accident.

This suit was filed in the Circuit Court for the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in and for Hillsborough Circuit, Florida by Jackson Parsons.

Parsons, who was riding a bicycle at the time of the alleged accident, claims he was severely injured in a traffic incident involving a WWE-owned van being driven by WWE employee Gaitan Thomas – and that Thomas was “on the job at the time” of this.

He adds how he has suffered a past and future earnings loss of between $75,036 - $100,048, and believes his projected future medical bills will amount to $314,850.

Additionally, this lawsuit also seeks a further $76,500 for pain, suffering, mental anguish and inconvenience already suffered by Parsons, with another $401,500 sought for future pain and suffering.
