Vince McMahon – WWE President
For WWE, Vince McMahon is the most capable of being “close” because he oversees most important jobs, from editing content to scripting and planning for large and small events.
Vince McMahon is also deeply involved in WWE’s script to play a “cruel, greedy and heartless” boss, but unfortunately, that role is no different from reality
Ever since he stepped into the company, Vince had forced all wrestlers to sign a cold “collaborator” contract. The most famous wrestlers, who bring the most money to WWE, do not escape this “collaborative” contract.
But the unfavorable contract is just the beginning when no wrestler has the right to take leave, the more popular, the more they have to invest their entire life in the WWE if they don’t want to be “marginalized”.
Up to now, wrestlers are only allowed to take a break from WWE if they have expired. Otherwise, they only have a few short holidays in the hotel between tours, almost completely losing contact with their lovers and family.
Referring to touring, although WWE “orders” wrestlers to move around to perform, the company only pays for air tickets between cities, wrestlers must pay for the service themselves such as taxi, hotel, resort during the “working” time.
At the end of 2017, WWE continually mentioned about “Monday Night Raw” program that was broadcast throughout the Christmas season. Whether the audience is happy with this decision or not, WWE “superstars” have lost a holiday season with the family that year.
No holidays, no leave, it seems that wrestlers only have to leave sick or injured to escape. Unfortunately, Vincent anticipated this and bound it into the contract. Specifically, WWE can completely liquidate the contract at any time if the wrestler is injured and has to take a break for more than 6 weeks.
