WWE Trashed Again: Attention Or Frustration?

RiZESenior Writer IAugust 22, 2010

Lately a few former WWE Superstars have come out and spoke of their time with the company. Now as we all know, most of the comments are negative. Former Superstar & Harvard Graduate Chris Nowinski recently spoke against the WWE. Former WWE Tag Team Champion Rene Dupree had some harsh words about his former employer.

"I was miserable the last three years I was in WWE, I was miserable, I hated it, because its all politics, You have to kiss ass. In Japan, all you've got to do, is work hard, you've got to look good, and thats it. Its about the performance. It's not about how big you are, or how good of a promo you can cut. It's about if you can deliver in the ring."

From the photo above, Dupree has obviously changed his appearance, adding some tattoos, & sporting a goatee. Dupree also spoke of his changing appearance.

"I've always wanted tattoos, ever since I was a little kid. Mind you, when I was 18 & signed with WWE, and they had a strict policy, "Oh no, you can't have tattoos without permission. Oh no, you can't do this, you can't do that. "Basically when you sign a contract with WWE, you sell your soul. You can't take sh*t without asking their permission. That's the bottom line, that's the truth. The hell with that sh*t. No. Here in Japan, I get a new tattoo, and the boys are like, 'Oh, sugoi(awesome), new tattoo."

Dupree also had some harsh words for his former employer, Vince McMahon.

"I don't care how much money Vince McMahon has, Vince McMahon put my father out of business, for a lot of people. That was a very, very hard time in my life. That is very hard to forgive, very hard to forgive."

Is it me, or are these guys trashing the WWE a lot these days. I understand the bad living conditions from all the traveling. The small amount of time off is another good reason, but these guys had to know of what they were getting themselves into. 

That's what a contract is for. Wrestlers just don't complain after the WWE gave them perhaps the greatest opportunity of their lives.
