The WWE is very particular about what their performers get up to in regards to legal issues as we saw with the likes of Rich Swann and Enzo Amore. They’re very strict if you breach those regulations and that makes what happened at a recent NXT taping even more odd. In Swann’s case, the assault charges against his partner were dropped, and so was his suspension (he’s yet to return, but there’s a 16-man cruiserweight tournament currently happening that we’d love to see him in), but when it comes to an active case, there’s no way WWE will tolerate anything.
However, at their recent tapings in Atlanta, Wesley Blake and Steve Cutler debuted their new tag team, The Forgotten Sons for the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. But it was one of their opponents who is most notable in this match. Reports are coming out from The Daily Ridge that Curtis Lee Gibson, one of the enhancement talent opponents for The Forgotten Sons, is actually going through a lawsuit after being charged with aggravated assault and battery in mid-2017.
He’s only enhancement talent, and it’s very unlikely he’ll ever be seen again in the WWE, but it still makes you wonder how they can’t do a bit of background research on the enhancement talent that they use. This isn’t too big of a deal, but it’s worth reporting on, especially after all the troubles that have surrounded Rich Swann and Enzo Amore in the legal realm as of late.
So what do you guys think? Should WWE try and do more thorough background searches on anyone who performs under their banner? Does it matter since he’s only there for a one time appearance to get squashed? Do you care at all? Let us know all your thoughts in the comments below.
