A WWE Raw star and multi-time champion has commented on critcism the company has received for classing talent as “independent contractors”.
This is a debate that has risen back to prominence due to Vince McMahon trying to have the company take control of talents’ own personal third party accounts such as Twitch.
Speaking on Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend, Alexa Bliss said:
“WWE takes care of us 100%. We are in a contract and anything that happens inside the ring, WWE takes care of. Our health is 100% priority with the company. Unfortunately, we’re living in the middle of ‘cancel culture’ where people try to start rumors and make their assumptions of things. There’s never been a time where I’ve ever felt uncomfortable being in the ring or forced to be in the ring. When I was injured, I had concussions, and Vince said, ‘alright, we’re going to send you to the best specialist there is,’ and he did. I saw a concussion specialist and they went above and beyond to take care of me. I know everyone feels that way.”
Andrew Yang has said previously that if Joe Biden was elected President he would look into the “independent contractor” situation and essentially make it right.
