Britney Abrahams, Ex-WWE Writer, Drops Lawsuit Accusing Racial Discrimination and Other Claims

Britney Abrahams has withdrawn her lawsuit, as revealed in a recent court documentary. The dismissal is noted as “without prejudice,” allowing the possibility of revisiting the lawsuit in the future. The lawsuit remains active against WWE, as stated in the legal filing.

Formerly a WWE writer between 2020 and 2022, Abrahams initiated the lawsuit on April 25. The legal action was directed towards Vince McMahon and other WWE executives, citing claims of racial and gender stereotypes in scripts, as well as wrongful termination.

Among the defendants listed were Stephanie McMahon, Chris Lubrando (SVP, Creative Writing Operations at WWE), WWE creative team members Chris Dunn, Ryan Callahan, Jen Pepperman, and former team member Mike Heller.

Abrahams asserts that she faced discrimination and was terminated for voicing objections to “offensively racist and stereotypical language” in scripts involving black performers. Allegedly, her complaints were disregarded.

From the filing:

Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(a)(1)(i), Plaintiff Britney Abrahams, by and
through her attorneys, THE COCHRAN FIRM, hereby gives notice that the above captioned action
is voluntarily discontinued without prejudice as to all claims and causes of action against
defendants CHRIS DUNN, individually, RYAN CALLAHAN, individually, JENIFFER
PEPPERMAN, individually, CHRISTINE LUBRANO, individually, MIKE HELLER,
individually, VINCE MCMAHON, individually, STEPHANIE MCMAHON, individually, with
each party bearing that party’s own attorney’s fees and costs. Dismissal is proper under this section
because the Defendants have not yet answered the complaint in this matter.
