Buff Bagwell, Raven Lawsuit Against WWE Dropped

The lawsuits from Buff Bagwell and Raven have been dismissed.

PWInsider reported that the United States District Court of Connecticut officially dismissed the lawsuits between Marcus (Buff) Bagwell and Scott Levy (Raven). It's not exactly confirmed what led to the dismissal.

The case was dismissed with prejudice, which means neither can sue WWE for these claims again.

Both suits had to deal with royalties that they felt they were not getting as part of their contractual agreement with the WWE. Both Raven and Bagwell accused WWE of breaching their contracts by failing to pay direct sales royalties related to WWE Network content that featured them in skits and matches. Raven's lawsuit further said that with the purchase of ECW and WCW in 2001, those libraries should fall under the royalty rate that he was promised by WWE. Bagwell's suit says that he had not been paid any royalties since 2014 when the WWE Network launched.

The lawsuit also claimed that WWE failed to agree to its fiduciary duty to Raven and Bagwell because WWE was in a better position when it came to knowing royalties they owed to talent.

With this dismissal, it seems likely that WCW Thunder and Sunday Night Heat will be up on the network soon. Most of that content is already ready to launch, but this lawsuit had further delayed the plans.
