WWE Hall Of Famer Bret Hart recently took part in an interview on CBS Sports’ In This Corner podcast in which he gave his thoughts on the way wrestlers are treated in WWE. Hart said employees in WWE have better benefits than the wrestlers do:
“Employees who work for WWF they have better benefits than the wrestlers do. The ones they should take care of is the wrestlers. They still don’t take care of the wrestlers the way they should. I think that’s a real shame.”
Hart also discussed the upcoming 2020 relaunch of XFL, he believes the players will also be treated better than wrestlers.
"We all know that’s being paid for by the wrestlers, by the wrestling industry. But none of that is gonna filter down to any of the wrestlers. That’s gonna filter down to a bunch of football players being padded with football contracts and they’re gonna have special doctors and they’ll get all the things the wrestlers never got.
“They will be treated like the finest cattle you know animals, you know the treatment they will get is heads and tails above what the wrestlers will get. The wrestlers will get chicken feed at the bottom. If they get injured, they get sent off. It’s a very cut and dry world in pro wrestling."
