Former WWE, WCW and ECW wrestler "Big Vito" Lograsso took to Facebook this week to comment on the retirement of Daniel Bryan, a retirement that he says was influenced by a lawsuit he filed against WWE. The lawsuit, filed by Lograsso and former NXT talent Evan Singleton, states that Vito suffered serious neurological damage and memory loss, among other things, due to his time in WWE. This is what he had to say regarding Daniel Bryan.
“My thoughts on this week so far are something to talk about. People are now starting to get in the know on CTE. If it wasn’t for this lawsuit, Daniel Bryan would be going to Wrestlemania. Who knows what would have happened if he kept wrestling. I am happy he will be OK. The fear on losing your spot is real. Are you hurt, NO. You keep going. It was the culture. All the people now sharing concussion stories. All the awareness. But a year ago, this lawsuit and everything about concussions, CTE, was laughed at, made fun of, thought it was a load of crap. Now, it is reality. The education you are getting now, but what about back then ? Now people want to step up and be spokesmen and help. No one could care or donated their time last year. They could care less. Glad I made this possible for all to see. I speak for me, the others and the guys not here no more. My wish is for this to settle and make this a great thing. Right now it’s a pissing contest instead of working together. Make things right and go for the gold on this. Waste your money on fighting something that is true won’t get you any votes. Just prolonges what will be. Do it classy and not as a must. -Merit- , is what we have, the facts are there. Daniel Bryan moves on to have a family and keep his head together, a real positive here. If not for me taking this on , who knows what would have been. #fightvitofight”
What do you think? Does Vito have a point?
