John Olver Rips the WWE a new one

So I was a wrestling fan for a while sort of drifted away from it after a while. I know the work and pain these guys go through to make a career out of it. John Oliver in his latest episode does a RAW Smackdown of the WWEs quite frankly disgusting treatment of its wrestlers. these guys are brutalized basically and almost literally have no choice in the matter.

He's a little late to the party. Yeah, it's not an ideal situation, but it's what they choose to do. And hey, it may be in the process of changing due to things like AEW coming down the pike.

Truthfully, the wrestlers now probably have it a helluva lot better than any other point in the last century.
