    The fact that pro-wrestlers working for McMahon are not given a pension is disgusting.

    Can't believe he didn't work in the famous clip of Donald Trump bodyslamming Vince.

    Unfortunately, nothing seems changed. Fans weren't very vocal about this -- I guess they don't care THAT much.

    WWE: if you're 20+ come to have fun.
    Death: if you're a retired wrestler clap your hands and sleep well.

    that is sad. and there is some dirty stuff going on here but... don't be a wrestler and you'll be ok? like, who gives a shit? our war veterans don't get health care either and nobody gives a shit about them, why would anyone care about wrestle-actors.

    #AndrewYang2020 The only presidential candidate the world needs. The most human with the most vision and actual solutions. Even to specific injustices like this with WWE.

    Wake up America. Don't fuck your election again. #googleandrewyang

    No exit plan? The millions of dollars a year isn’t enough to be able to save up for retirement? What?

    how about people stop watching it? why do people like to watch others in pain. A real solution will be to ask people to stop watching it. What is wrong with us. we like war , we like to watch other countries destroy by our own actions. We like to see people banged on porn, I never watched wwe or wwf , what ever they call themselves now in over 30 years. ADULTS SHOULD NOT BE WATCHING IT .
