On the most recent episode of Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, Henry defined that he informed McMahon that he needed all the advantages that include being a WWE worker, however it turned obvious that wasn’t going to occur. That’s when he picked up the telephone and gave a name to Tony Khan.
With all the latest talent cuts and corporate restructuring occurring in WWE, Henry surmised that morale within the locker room is down, and he understands why so many individuals assume WWE is getting ready for a sale.
Henry: “I’m type of shocked at every thing that’s taking place, as a result of once I take a look at the product, I feel that some individuals could be disenchanted. Expertise smart, morale has acquired to be down. But it surely seems to me just like the WWE is breaking every thing up and shutting some doorways to get every thing to be type of regular for a change. And normally when individuals break every thing up like that and begin transferring and shutting departments, it’s to allow them to promote it. I don’t know if that’s a great factor or a foul factor. I don’t personal it. So, it’s going to be one thing to take a look at. Since you see what occurred…they’d [WWE] Community, they usually went to Peacock, and now that’s someone else’s accountability. They’re taking all the expenditures out and making it extra of a reasonably bundle to purchase and do no matter you need to with it…It’s extra geared in the direction of making it snug for what’s subsequent, moderately than what’s.”
Renee honed in on how the expertise should really feel proper now within the WWE locker room:
Paquette: “…There’s nothing worse than going to work feeling such as you’re on eggshells. That doesn’t result in good performances.”
Henry: “It don’t. Like I mentioned, it’s unhealthy for morale. You’re feeling, like, pressed. Like if I don’t exit right here and do tremendous unbelievable, I could be subsequent. You already know, it’s not a fantastic feeling.”
Paquette: “Yeah. It’s scary…Jon [Moxley] and I had been having a dialog the opposite day, I’m like man we acquired out on the excellent time…I couldn’t think about being there now and simply being like, what is going on? Like, your head can be spinning. It sucks. I really feel so unhealthy for everyone there.”
WWE is bringing in record profits, even throughout a worldwide pandemic. But as an alternative of sharing that extra cash with the wrestlers who’re breaking their our bodies to generate it, WWE has as an alternative determined that it makes extra sense cut the budget for expertise. On prime of that, rumors persist about extra expertise cuts within the coming weeks.
Yeah, I’d say that’s a fantastic cause for morale to be down.
