Re: WWE Ends Contract Talks With Chris Jericho
WWE not treating Jericho like the top-level talent he is, what else if new? Chris Jericho has to be one of the most misused talents in pro-wrestling history. Had they booked him better, he could have been up there with Rock or Austin in terms of popularity, but since HHH hated him he was relegated to jobber to the stars status.
WWE always wants full control over their workers, wasn't that one of the reasons Maria left? Works out nicely for Vince that he has his workers sell their souls to him, but they are still classified as 'independant contractors' so he doesn't have to pay health care or pensions for them.
Vince can blow all WWE's money on a shit movie studio, throw money at any celebrity that will come his way, and give Linda tens of millions to waste on a failure of a political campaign but he can't give one of the best and most loyal workers a easier contract?
