We all have that one show or film that we love so much, we find ourselves in a situation where we can see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil about it. As a matter of fact, when you come across news or a rumor that someone is suing your all-time favorite show, the first thing that comes to your mind is “what is wrong with them?” Such is the beauty of fanaticism. No one can speak evil about your favorite show and live to tell a second tale about it – okay, we’re kidding, let them live, it’s never that serious!
Apparently there are a number of superstars who have, in the course of their lifetime, sued the WWE for all sorts of different reasons. Yes, we know you are probably wishing you had that metal chair to smack over their heads and perform a DDT on them.
Anyway, in showbiz, lawsuits are the order of the day. Someone is always unhappy about something, and someone is always getting short-changed in one way or the other. Read on as we give you a rundown of a number of superstars who went on to sue the WWE.

One of the first ever WWE Divas, Sable was quite a spectacular figure in wrestling back in the day. She debuted on the scene as a valet for Triple H, and later on became quite a phenomenon both in and out of the ring. In 1999 she would file a $110 million lawsuit against the WWF, citing sexual harassment and most importantly working conditions which in her opinion were unsafe. Her suit came after she refused to go topless as had been instructed by her employers. Vince McMahon filed a counter suit while hers was still ongoing, for control over the name Sable, and they agreed to settle out of court.
