Alexa Bliss, the WWE star opened up on a highly criticised issue when she joined Alison Is Your New Best Friend. She talked about the promotions classifying talents as independent contractors instead of addressing them as their employees.
Alexa Bliss on how WWE takes care of the talents being under a contract
When the talents are addressed as independent contractors then it means there are less benefits associated with their employment. It is also reported that they might be pressurized to work hurt or being sick due to the contractor status.
However, when asked about having any such experience, the former WWE Raw Women’s Champion said that WWE takes good care of their talents as health and safety are the top priorities.
“WWE takes care of us 100 percent. We are all in a contract, and anything that happens inside the ring, WWE takes care of. Our health is 100 percent a priority; our health and safety is 100 percent a priority in the company.”
Bliss also blasted the people spreading rumours and admitted that she never had to face such experiences where she felt uncomfortable or pressurized to compete.
“Unfortunately, we’re living in the middle of a cancel culture where people try to start rumors and make their assumptions of things, and there’s never been a time where I’ve ever felt uncomfortable about being in the ring, or have ever felt forced of being in the ring.”
Bliss has had numerous concussions in the past. She discussed how Vince McMahon and WWE are concerned about their talents when injured, while they also take care of them.
“Even when I was injured, I had concussions, and Vince said, ‘Alright, well, we’re going to send you to the best specialists there are.’ And he did. I saw a concussion specialist and they went above and beyond to take care of me, and I know everyone feels that way.”
Alexa Bliss has recently joined hands with The Fiend and underwent a gimmick change. She also broke up with her former best friend and tag-team partner, Nikki Cross.
