Floyd Mayweather Jr. Wins $150,000 Legal Case over WWE Entrance Music

Producer Anthony Lawrence Dash sued Mayweather, along with the WWE, for $150,000 over his entrance music in a 2008 encounter at WrestleMania 24.

At the time, Mayweather was involved in a series of cameos on the wrestling series and fought the Big Show at WWE‘s biggest night of the year.  

According to TMZ, however, a judge has ruled that Mayweather did not owe Dash any money:

According to the ruling, Dash wasn’t entitled to a cut of the profits from Mayweather’s use of the song … because he couldn’t prove Mayweather even made money off the song in the first place (same with WWE).

Although $150,000 is a lot of money, it would have been an amount Mayweather could have stomached even if he had lost.

Earlier this month, he was given a cheque for over $40 million for fighting CaneloAlvarez

He could even have spent his gambling winnings on the result, having scooped $200,000 on a bet this week
