Yeah, the Saudi situation was a pretty shitty thing for people to go through, and if it does turn out to be WWE's ... or Vince's fault, then I'm sure some wrestlers will sue their way out of their supposedly water-tight contracts.
But for the most part, all of these "uhhhh, I'm unhappy with my character, and my contract is not fair!" complaints are nothing but the wrestlers being whiney bitches that are taking on the millennial mindset that every second of their life should be amazing and everything should be handed to them because they want it.
People - both fans and those in the industry - have been saying for almost 10 years that WWE wrestlers had become complacent. All way too happy to sit in the mid card collecting their cheque every month for 2 or 3 TV appearances, happy to be IN the company and not caring about getting to the top of the card.
Mostly because you can coast in the lower and mid card for years, on good money, without having all the extra hassle and work that comes with being a champion in WWE.
But now, the roster has expanded to the point that those people aren't coasting along, getting 2 or 3 appearances a month. They are being paid to travel constantly and get zero TV matches, or to sit at home gaining weight - because WWE can now pick and choose the people that get the exposure. And who do they pick? They people that are pushing themselves harder, or want to represent the company, or are just hungry for opportunities to entertain.
So now we get a large number of undercard talent bitching that they don't get matches and feuds handed to them, saying that they are working hard just because they are THERE. That's not enough in WWE these days.
Then we have the contract "issues". These people were so blinded by greed and ambition when they were handed their WWE contract that they didn't take a minute to read what they were signing into - and what they were signing away to WWE. They spend the first year of the contract expecting to be "made" a superstar rather than doing the work themselves, and when it hasn't happened, they suddenly complain that their contract is unfair because they can't just walk away.
Way too many are expecting everything to be handed to them. They need to make themselves the centre of attention, make WWE notice them for something interesting or unique. And they need to stop moping about with a face like a slapped arse, openly sulking in the background of televised backstage segments, and rubbishing the company on social media.
Veered off topic a little with my rant, but I feel better now.
