Matt Osborne's family sues WWE

The latest lawsuit against WWE litigated by attorney Konstantine Kyros was filed earlier today in federal court in Dallas by the family of the late Matt Osborne, best known as Maniac Matt Borne, and the original Doink the Clown.

The lawsuit, similar to ones filed by Billy Jack Haynes, Vito LoGrasso, Ryan Sakoda and the wife of the late Nelson Frazier, alleged that Osborne suffered concussions in wrestling that led to depression and drug abuse which led to his 2013 death.

Jerry McDevitt spoke to the Dallas Morning News, noting the similarty to the other suits and saying they have no merit, claiming attorneys are finding destitute pro wrestlers and telling them there's money to be made.  

The suit was filed by Michelle James, the mother of Matt Osborne's two children.
