Rumble Fitness co-founder files lawsuit against the buzzy boxing studio

New York Post 3 weeks ago

Buzzy boxing studio Rumble Fitness has been hit with a lawsuit by one of its founders.

Brian Ripka claims that current CEO Andrew Stenzler, with help from his wife Shari’s p.r. firm, has frozen him out of the company and smeared his name. He also says they installed a faux “founder” to take Stenzler’s place.

The lawsuit claims that because “Stenzler has been subject to multiple litigations for swindling investors and misusing investor funds,” the defendants “have sought to remove him from the spotlight and install a ‘straw man,’ in this case, a heavily tattooed personal trainer, as the purported founder of Rumble Fitness.”

The suit says the company has “falsely and deceptively” been listing alleged imposter Noah Neiman as a founder in press releases.

Ripka also claims the gym manipulated the media and the public through its p.r. agency. The lawsuit claims: “Through London Misher PR, defendants have conspired to distribute and or plant over 300 articles containing false or misleading information intended to deceive the consuming public.”

Shari said in a statement: “I feel bad for Brian. He had a chance to own a 3 percent participation stake in Rumble, but passed. It was probably the mistake of a lifetime. His lawsuits are nothing more than a concocted sour grapes cocktail of lies and smears.”
