Dwayne Johnson Exonerated in a Lawsuit Initiated by Rhaka Khan

by | Oct 6, 2023 | WWE News | 0 comments

In the wake of modest box office numbers for the movie “Black Adam”, the XFL’s reported $60 million loss during its inaugural season under Johnson’s supervision, and the discontinuation of the NBC show “Young Rock”, it appears Dwayne Johnson could use a reprieve. And it seems the universe has delivered.

PWInsider reports that U.S. District Court Judge Laura Taylor Swain has absolved both Johnson and a host of other individuals and entities from a lawsuit lodged by former TNA and WWE developmental wrestler Trenesha “Rhaka Khan” Biggers. The lawsuit pertained to alleged conspiracy and kidnapping related to Biggers’s 2019 arrest for interfering with child custody and “aggravated kidnapping facilitate”. Biggers claimed that nearly a thousand individuals colluded to abduct her children post-arrest.

Prior to this, Biggers was notably elusive, having landed herself on El Paso, Texas’s most-wanted list due to evading her charges.

The expansive defendant list in the now-dismissed case spans from the FBI, multiple police departments, various WWE personalities, corporate giants like Bank of America and Home Depot, to basketball icon Michael Jordan. The list even includes former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Chris Benoit, deceased since 2007, all allegedly implicated in a vast plot to sever Biggers’s ties with her children.

Unpacking Rhaka Khan’s Complex History in Wrestling and Beyond

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a celebrated wrestler and actor, found himself embroiled in controversial discussions this April. Rhaka Khan, or Trenesha Biggers by birth, had named him in a colossal $3 billion kidnapping lawsuit.

Tracing back to December 25, 1981, Biggers was athletically inclined throughout her school years and later embarked on a modeling journey before stepping into the wrestling world in 2005. She first graced the WWE platform during the Diva Search as Trenesha. Despite not making it past the top 25, WWE soon inked a contract with her, channeling her to Deep South Wrestling. Her journey continued with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) in 2008, adopting the moniker Rhaka Khan. Her stint at TNA as Rhaka Khan was short-lived, spanning just over a year.

Outside the wrestling ring, Biggers’s life took some dramatic turns. She entered a romantic liaison with WWE champion Kurt Angle during their mutual engagement with TNA from 2008-2009. Their professional collaboration translated on-screen as well. However, storm clouds gathered when Biggers accused Angle of abuse, prompting her to secure a protective order in August 2009, which she later renounced. Angle’s name resurfaced in her legal proceedings.

Adding another layer to her personal struggles, in 2019, Biggers faced accusations of child custody interference, allegedly taking her child without the father’s approval. Subsequent evasions of court appearances culminated in her arrest in October 2021.

A Deep Dive into Rhaka Khan’s Lawsuit Details

Biggers’s narrative in her lawsuit paints a contrasting picture. She contends that Angle, in connivance with her ex, Ephraim Sims, and law enforcement agencies, orchestrated false allegations against her to deprive her of her children.

The lawsuit, demanding a staggering $3 billion in reparations, enumerates over 400 defendants across 23 pages. Among the high-profile names is Dwayne Johnson. While the link between Johnson and the lawsuit remains nebulous, the only conceivable connection seems to be their mutual associations within the WWE realm.

June 2023 marked the end of this chapter, with U.S. District Court Judge Laura Taylor Swain dismissing the case. The court emphasized that certain sections of the complaint were deemed frivolous or failed to outline a valid claim.
