Maxx Payne is Pissed
Maxx Payne first appeared as a wrestler in 1988; however, when you hear the name now that certainly isn't who comes to mind. The Salt Lake Tribune has recently reported that the retired professional wrestler Maxx Payne has filed a $10 million lawsuit against Rockstar Games, 3D Realms Entertainment, Remedy Entertainment, and Gathering of Developers. Darryl Peterson, his real name, is claiming that the companies stole his persona in the third-person shooter Max Payne.
"I left wrestling to come home to Utah and be with my family and I find myself in the biggest battle of my life--to save my identity," Peterson told The Salt Lake Tribune. "They stole something from me that I'm not going to give up. I'll fight until there's no fight left."
