Ryback Asks Vince McMahon To ‘Do The Right Thing’ & Explain Why Wrestlers Are Independent Contractors

When John Oliver did a segment on the WWE on his show a couple of weeks ago, it sparked a discussion about WWE superstars and the lack of benefits that they get, thanks to their designation as independent contractors. Now, former WWE superstar Ryback has taken to social media and asked the company to address issues.

Although the WWE invited Oliver to WrestleMania 35 and seemed to open a dialogue involving the issue, some in the industry still want more from the company. Yesterday, Ryback took to Twitter and called out the WWE, Vince McMahon, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon, asking them all to do “the right thing” and publicly explain why the company still employs wrestlers as independent contractors. It’s unlikely that WWE will respond, but it is interesting to see more former superstars coming out and speaking on this subject.
