Update On Scott Steiner Vs TNA


Former TNA star Scott "Steiner" RechSteiner responded to the TNA lawsuit against him on 9/10 in the The Chancery Court of Tennessee in Davidson County, counter-suing TNA and alleging that the company breached their contract with him
Steiner alleged that TNA had failed to properly provide, as they were contractually obligated to do, "an accounting of all Royalty payments" due to him, failed to provide "royalty statements of all merchandise royalties and video royalties" owed to him, and "failed to pay all royalties" due to him. Steiner demanded judgment in a "yet to be determined amount."

TNA sued Steiner in June, claiming he breached his (by then expired) TNA contract by making disparaging remarks about TNA, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff and Bruce Prichard, among others. TNA is seeking damages and an injunction to stop Steiner from speaking out.

In responding to TNA's suit against him, Steiner denied that he ever agreed to not disparage the company, that speaking out against it would breach his deal, that he was involved in a "concerted effort to disparage" the company and its officers, that he ignored requests to stop, that he is in a legal and binding agreement with TNA and that TNA has suffered damages as a result of his actions.

Steiner has stated his TNA deal expired and while he was offered a new contract, he opted to turn it down and never executed the deal.

In his respond, Steiner demanded the TNA suit against him be thrown out of court and requested a jury trial should the case go to trial
