    Vince will resist this with his dying breath. I think he is that kind of asshole. When he is out of the company through either death, retirement or getting fired, WWE will probable have a lot of changes in how its organized and how talent is handled.

    The guy with the glasses (not Adam) comes off as such an unlikable, hateful, hipster douche I tune him out whenever he whines, I mean talks.

    Regardless of what he did for Harley Race. I see it as Vince doing it because of who Harley Race was and the fact after what John Oliver said, he doesn't want his company or himself to look bad. So people, don't be fooled! Vince isn't stupid. He knows what he is doing.

    Professional athletes (MLB, NFL, NBA) in the US generally earn 46-52% of their league's revenue. WWE wrestlers earn something like 8%. Just let that sink in.

    If AEW allowed their wrestlers to unionize and provided healthcare, then WWE would definitely do something.

    Just remember this......a WWE employee who works in Stamford, CT has a better benefit package, 401K, and health benefits that are BETTER than the main roster. Also, that employee are in the union, while the wrestler are getting " scraps of the financial food chain". This discussion will continue;however, a WWE wrestler will never have no power whatsoever.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Roddy Piper basically blackballed for years for promoting the idea of a union to wrestlers in every territory?
    It needs to happen. We have the NFLPA, MLBPA, NHLPA, NBPA, and MLSPA. Why not the AAPW and MMAFA?

    Perhaps not a straight up union but forming a wrestling version of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). Actors work very similarly to wrestlers, (signs contracts to complete a job for a certain amount of time, works for media companies, etc) so it might work.

    I'm no expert but it's an idea

    No. These people are stunt men. They wind up injured all the time. It would bankrupt vince.
    Also think of the mother fuckers that would purposely injure themselves for a lifetime vacation on vince's dime.
    Ultimately, these are traveling carny folk. I mean, it's still better than being a beta male englishman trying hard to sell out on youtube, but, you don't unionize carny stunt men.

    Yes. As long as they don't get it, nobody should watch WWE again!

    You know, if you've made it close enough to sneeze on it, you're probably getting promoted.
