WWE: Vince McMahon & WWE sued

The Memphis Daily News is reporting that Memphis pro wrestling promoter Corey Maclin is suing WWE and Vince McMahon for pulling Jerry Lawler from a scheduled match where he was booked to face Hulk Hogan in Memphis, Tennessee last year.

Lawler pulled out of the booked appearance because he claimed that his WWE contract would not allow him to work since footage would be shown on VH-1’s Hogan Knows Best reality show. During this time, Hogan was not on good terms with WWE. Paul “Big Show” Wight ended up taking Lawler’s place.
