Wrongful death lawsuits against WWE dropped

U.S. District Judge Vanessa Bryant dismissed two wrongful death lawsuits filed against WWE on Thursday regarding Matt “Doink the Clown” Osbourne and Nelson “Big Daddy V” Frazier. Osbourne passed away in 2013 from an accidental opiate overdose, while Frazier passed away in 2014 from a heart attack. The same lawsuits claimed both men suffered brain injuries (CTE) while working for WWE that led to early deaths. The judge ruled that neither case could provide facts that CTE was a factor.
