John Oliver slams Vince McMahon and the WWE in a scathing segment

John Oliver Attacks WWE On Last Week Tonight

John Oliver Discussed A ‘Morally Subterranean’ WWE On ‘Last Week Tonight’

According to the WWE website, the program provides wrestlers a yearly physical and drug testing.

During the episode of Last Week Tonight, Oliver unpacked the disgusting work conditions faced by wrestlers in the WWE under the reign of McMahon, who is seen as a villain during telecasts of WWE events.

He played many clips from retired wrestlers who have worked under McMahon.

For example, McMahons' wrestlers aren't technically his employees; they're still considered "independent contractors" despite signing exclusive contracts and providing the wellspring for McMahon's entire business.

But United were far from their best against the Hornets with the away side enjoying more shots and corners than the Red Devils. The tactician believes five wins from his side's remaining seven matches would be enough to seal a top three finish.

During the Last Week Tonight segment, Oliver said the following on Vince McMahon: "While the character Vince is an a**hole, it's important to know that the real Vince is also an a**hole".

John Oliver did note that the WWE has implemented some changes over the past few years, like banning chair shots to the head and adopting a concussion protocol, but argued that these "underwhelming" steps aren't enough.

All of this shadiness brought up an important question for Oliver: is there any hope here?

"Even the National Football League, for all its massive faults, now offers players health reimbursement accounts and have established a legacy fund for older players who may be dealing with health issues", John said towards the end of the segment. "When you've lost the moral high ground to the f-- NFL, you are morally subterranean".

More details from the episode can be found at Fox News and Pro Wrestling Sheet, but to say the content that Oliver has provided has been noted would be an understatement.

Much of what he said is what fans have felt for decades but the way everything was presented was well done.

Oliver, a long-time wrestling fan, ripped WWE and Vince McMahon for how they have treated their wrestlers.
