As previously reported, John Oliver called out WWE on a recent episode of his “Last Week Tonight” Show on HBO. During the show, Oliver talked about how The WWE Superstars are being treated by the company as well as their status as independent contractors. A video of that segment can be seen below:
Oliver would then suggest to the fans that they can use their voice as they did with The #GiveDivasAChance movement, noting that there is potential for them to make signs and create chants at WrestleMania 35 to help push long-term healthcare for the wrestlers and for the wrestlers to be classified as actual employees instead of independent contractors.
WWE issued the following statement to PWInsider in response to the segment on HBO, inviting Oliver to attend WrestleMania 35:
John Oliver is clearly a clever and humorous entertainer, however the subject matter covered in his WWE segment is no laughing matter.
Prior to airing, WWE responded to his producers refuting every point in his one-sided presentation. John Oliver simply ignored the facts.
The health and wellness of our performers is the single most important aspect of our business, and we have a comprehensive, longstanding Talent Wellness program.
We invite John Oliver to attend WrestleMania this Sunday to learn more about our company.
