As first broke yesterday, World Wrestling Entertainment scored a major victory when Judge Vanessa L. Bryant of the United States District Court of Connecticut officially dismissed all of the concussion-related lawsuits against WWE.

Early this morning, attorney Konstantine Kyros issued a statement to, announcing he intended to appeal Bryant's dismissal order, which included ruling that Kyros would be responsible for reimbursing some of WWE's legal fees. contacted WWE's lead counsel Jerry McDevitt for comment on Kyros' plans to appeal.  Below is the complete response from McDevitt:

"This is the same kind of drivel Kyros pawned off on former wrestlers when soliciting them to sue WWE by false statements that he had obtained a billion dollar settlement for NFL players and would do the same for wrestlers, when in fact he had absolutely nothing to do with getting that settlement. He was caught repeatedly making false allegations; has been admonished repeatedly by federal judges about his dishonest behavior; and has now been subjected to two different sanction orders of the kind that would make most lawyers embarrassed and ashamed. The rant he sent you now insults the federal judge who issued the decision, and he still fails to address the basis of her opinion. He may well have been able to mislead those he solicited to join his lawsuits, but he will never succeed in misleading us or federal judges. Frankly, he should be disbarred."
