Fenix says WWE contracts are “nuts”

    Independent Contractor, but they work you like a slave. Some of the women make as low as 80k base salary and are expected to pay for their own travel and hotel. Kind of insane when you are on live TV every week.

    It’s been reported in a WWE contract, you sign away the rights to everything to them. You aren’t supposed to change your hair or get a tattoo without their permission. You are on the clock 24/7, but your insurance will only cover you in the ring. You own nothing and if they hate you, they’ll enforce it. Others have said you’d have to be crazy to sign a WWE deal if you actually read it word for word. That’s why anyone who has it as a goal should do the indies first and have a gimmick that they own and can fall back on in case things don’t work out.

    This is not exclusive to WWE. Look at the wrestlers in Lucha Underground who are complaining that they cannot wrestle elsewhere even though Lucha has shown no signs of having a next season. TNA has restricted people in the past, stopping their talent working for RoH for instance.

    Exclusivity is not nuts, but I am sure some of the stipulations they put in place might be viewed as nuts by many.

    Ok I can understand both sides of that part. But be careful AEW may end up being the same way some day.

    They seem to focus on the idea of being “free” to work multiple promotions, so I assume that he doesn’t like that a WWE contract would make them exclusive to one company.

    They don’t really tell you what so nuts about there contracts from the WWE do they. Right now it just one side. I respect them for going to AEW but what was so crazy about the contracts?
