I was just wondering what people's views on WWE house shows were. I think that they are beneficial in the sense that wrestlers can top up their salaries by doing them, as well as perfect and improve in-ring skills. But I do think that the WWE is exploiting wrestlers by putting on such a large amount of shows per year. Surely, for the wrestlers health status, it is better to have a maximum of four shows per week, with a tv taping included in that total. Does the WWE fill the arenas during house shows? It seems to me that the company has retained some of the old-school wrestling traditions with respect to touring and putting on as many shows as physically ppossible, whilst neglecting the health of the talent it employs. Surely with the multiple revenue streams the WWE has combined with its monopolisation of the wrestling business, the company should be able to reduce the workload of its employees.
Anyways what are your opinions of them?
Too many? Just the right amount? etc.
