WWE attorney on Nelson Frazier Jr. wrongful death lawsuit

WWE attorney Jerry McDevitt spoke with the Boston Herald about the recent wrongful death lawsuit filed against WWE by the widow of the late Nelson Frazier Jr. (Big Daddy V, Viscera, Mabel), Cassandra Frazier. McDevitt had the following to say about the lawsuit:

“They just ignore these things and allege whatever they feel like alleging. You can’t do that as a lawyer. You have to be basing your allegations on a reasonable investigation of the facts. It’s not some creative writing exercise to see if you can get media attention. “It’s an embarrassment to be a lawyer sometimes. It’s ridiculous that someone can … try to blame someone because a gentleman with a weight problem died of a heart attack in the shower eight years after he last performed. It’s ridiculous to try and blame someone for that.”
