Recently the WWE banned the use of chair shots the head. Although I do understand why they would ban chair shots, to take care of their superstars of course.
I also think that there is another more pressing issue that they should take care of. The wrestlers that are under contract with the WWE are not considered employees, they are considered contracted workers.
Which means that they get no health benefits, or any other kind of benefits. For people like me that have medical issues and need health benefits to work places, makes it hard to impossible to work for the WWE or any wrestling orginization for that matter.
If a wrestler is injured in the ring, which happens alot, then they are liable for there own medical bills. If they want health care they need to buy it themselves, and I don't think that's good enough.
Even after there wrestling career is done they still suffer from the side effects of being a professional wrestler.
Dawn Marie founded the charity, "Wrestler's Rescue," which took place on September 14, 2008 in Piscataway, New Jersey. The charity creates awareness and helps raise money to support the health care needs of retired professional wrestlers.
If the WWE follows what Dawn Marie is doing and find a way to give their active wrestlers benefits, then the WWE might be a little bit better place to work.
They also might find alot of talented wrestlers that couldn't, or wouldn't wrestle for them before because they don't offer health benefits.
I know that as long as the wrestlers keep coming to them nothing will change, but to keep these wrestlers,(who are risking there well being by being in the ring every night for them) from benefits, is wrong.
I know shots to the head is an issue, but wouldn't it be better to instead of decline the production value of your product, just make wrestlers happy and give them health benefits.
By the way what are they going to do in PPV Extreme Rules with no chairs, just saying.
What do you think about this issue, I would love to hear your thoughts.
