WWE issues statement on the death of Viloude Louis



WWE issued the following statement this evening:

The death of Viloude Louis is a tragedy, and our condolences go out to her family.

WWE urges restraint in reporting this unfortunate incident as if it were the result of a WWE wrestling move. As in similar cases, criminal intent to harm and a lack of parental supervision have been the factors resulting in a tragic death.

Authorities have already charged the accused with second degree murder and determined that this was not an accidental death due to a wrestling move.

    Why should he Vic? This is a 5 year old left home alone with her 13 year old brother. Why should anyone except who was supposed to be minding the children take responsibility? i.e their mother.

    This is a tragic incident but the WWE HAS to make statements like this, as obvious and logical as they are, some people still want to blame the WWE.

    Reading the story, it seems the perp ALWAYS slapped her around. A 5 yrwr old cant take that kind of pain, this kid just ruined an innocent life. This kid was just abusive to this little girl, and now hes got a wrestling company taking blame for his malicious actions. Idk… I say RIP Viloude. Thats all I can say. I’m at a loss.

    The WWE shouldn’t have to make statements like these, but they need to because they’ll always point fingers at the WWE saying it’s their fault, when in reality, the parents massively failed.

  5. Tony says:

    Not only in fingerpointing, but also because of brand name association. Much like Coke for cola or band aid for adhesive strip, brand name association can be good or bad. In this case a “WWE style move” vs “wrestling” move used by media outlets can negatively impact the brand name proper and it’s business. This statement basically warns reporters that consistent use can result in legal action. It was also one of the reasons they moved from wrestling to Sports Entertainment.

    Even though WWE is not to blame for this Im guessing we will be seeing an increase in the Don’t Try This at Home features in the near future
