WWE has petitioned for the lawsuit brought against World Wrestling Entertainment and The Big Show by former Digital Content Producer Andrew Green to be removed from Arizona Stage Court and moved to a federal court. WWE’s attorney argued that since the lawsuit revolves around a video posted on the internet on WWE.com, it falls under federal law.

As noted earlier, Green is claiming that another producer told him to get an interview with The Big Show at the January 27th WWE television taping at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona. Green says that Show initially refused to do the interview until Green told him that then-WWE Senior Vice President Eric Pankowski wanted it done. In his complaint he says, “In response, Big Show stated with the use of profanely indecent language that if Green wanted an interview then he would give him one, and to turn on the camera.” It also says that Big Show became angry and cursed at Green which was caught on tape for the interview. Green also said that Show asked him to redo it, which he did. Triple H then ordered another take on the interview because the second one lacked emotion, according to Green. Green claims that the incident made him afraid to keep working for the company.

Green noted that WWE has not paid him for his involvement in the video, which WWE shot down by filing a copy of the release Green signed when he worked there, showing that he gave up intellectual rights to anything he helped create and/or was involved in – WWE would maintain those rights.

The case has not been assigned to a judge for a federal case.
