Did you know? If a talent is fired from the WWE for disciplinary reasons they forfeit all merchandise rights and are unable to compete in pro wrestling or MMA for one year? Who would sign a contract like that?

While I don’t doubt that the numerous lawsuits piling up on the WWE are based on the (former) wrestlers looking for a cash grab… my best defense for the WWE is that the wrestlers knew what they were getting into before they signed their contract. As in, what they’re saying about the WWE mistreating their talent isn’t wrong, it’s just that the talent should have realized that they were going to get treated poorly before they signed up.
