WWE sued publisher THQ and its joint-venture partner Jakks Pacific Inc. last fall . Early this week, WWE came off the top rope to body slam THQ CEO Brian Farrell by adding him as an individual defendant.
The lawsuit involves claims of commercial bribery connected to WWE merchandising licences, and WWE seeks to nullify its video game licence with THQ and Jakks.
THQ and Jakks have indicated that the addition of Farrell as a defendant does not change their position on the proceeding, and that they are continuing to operate under the existing licence.
