Zelina Vega was fired by WWE for breach of contract. Owing to this, the discussions about the unionization of WWE Superstars have started once again. The Screen Actors Guild has already had a productive discussion with Vega recently.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about the current progress of SAG-AFTRA talking to WWE Superstars. He revealed that the main problem is that several top Superstars are simply afraid of rocking the boat. They are afraid it will make them lose many opportunities.
He said how in the case of hockey, football and basketball, those who spoke up and were activists had to take it on the chin in a lot of cases and it hurt their careers. However, this helped the next generation of players make much more money and receive more benefits. For the good of the business, it was a sacrifice that had to be made.
Meltzer added that “I think there are some” who want to leave the pro wrestling business in a better place.
