It’s been really exciting and I think it’s another amazing thing to have on my list of accomplishments.

Vince McMahon’s share payday to his employees last week was not well received by the talent. With many former WWE talents casting a shadow over their previous employer, it seems like WWE has found another way to piss people off. Vince McMahon doesn’t like a WWE NXT tag team It was also recently revealed.

Recently Vince Russo sat down with Billi Bhatti on “The Nitty Gritty Dirt Show” and talked about tons of WWE employees getting screwed over by his company.

Bhatti begins: “WWE employees were misled today. Today they received stock awards of $ 3,000 most of them. Not all employees got that award, but most did. “

Bhatti continues on the current situation: “They succeeded because employees learned today that salary increases and promotions will be suspended for twelve months.”

Russo: “Mhmm.”

Bhatti: “So they got $ 3,000 in stock, so I can tell you they’re not happy.”

Russo: “Wow, so the salaries, raises, bonuses, uhh, they’ve been on hold for a year, so they gave you $ 3,000 worth of stock instead?”

Bhatti: “Yes.”

Russo closes: “Okay.”

Judging from the retention of the incentives, it appears that WWE may be in hotter water than expected. Of course, this could just be from Covid, as all companies have had great successes over the past year.

We will see if WWE solves this financial problem for its employees.
