According to The Wrestling Observer, WWE has instated classes and seminars for developmental talents to make better financial decisions than past professional wrestlers, and to better prepare them for their post-wrestling lives.
The report notes talent will be attending classes/seminars on marketing themselves, financial management, college tuition reimbursement programs, media training and language courses.
WWE has teamed with Money Management International to help talents with things like budget control, debt control, how to properly select a tax professional to assist with tax paying, and how to select a money manger to help them plan for their futures.
Additionally, WWE has teamed up with Kevin Sullivan Communications, not to be confused with the Kevin Sullivan of pro wrestling fame, to help teach talents how to avoid bad PR on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
