FS1 Host Shocked WWE Stars Have Cover Their Own Transportation and Don’t Have a CBA

WWE RAW Women’s Champion Bayley was the special guest on FS1 Fair Game today, and spoke about her WWE fandom growing up, as well as life on the road.

Bayley spoke on how life on the road is tough, and travelling from town from town in a rental car takes its toll. She mentioned how she came close to running out of gas, and at times they are driving through “sketchy” parts of town.   Host Kristine Leahy was shocked to learn WWE stars didn’t have drivers, and had to drive on their own.

Judging from the clip, Bayley seemed a little uncomfortable having to defend WWE. She was quick to provide a response stating that it would be hard for the company to accommodate 30 stars on the road each week. Leahy feels the company has enough money to do so, and they should not have to rent their own cars.

Leahy also asked if WWE stars had a CBA(collective bargaining agreement), which Bayley answered no. WWE stars are not employees, and the company classifies them as independent contractors.

WWE stars are provided plane tickets to travel from home to the road, but are required to cover their own expenses once they land in a city. WWE will provide air transportation for longer trips as well.  Talent must cover their rental cars, accommodations, and meals. WWE provides catering at the event, as well as covers transportation for media appearances.

The following is an excerpt from a standard WWE contract

  WRESTLER shall be responsible for providing all costumes, wardrobe, props, and make‑up necessary for the performance of WRESTLER’s services at any Event and WRESTLER shall bear all costs incurred in connection with her transportation to and from any such Events (except for those transportation costs which are covered by PROMOTER’s then current Travel Policy), as well as the costs of food consumed and hotel lodging utilized by WRESTLER in connection with her appearance at such Events.

Seth Rollins was not WWE’s first pick for last night’s segment with DX and The O.C.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, Ricochet was originally planned to to be a part of the segment, and was pulled due to an elbow infection. The company was planning on using him as a fresh face to “get the rub” from DX and endorse him as a major player in the company.

Seth Rollins ended up working a match against AJ Styles, and being a part of the segment. It’s unknown how long Ricochet will be out of action.

It was also noted that Rikishi was originally supposed to give D-Von Dudley and The Revival a “Stinkface”, but was not medically cleared to perform any moves.

Jon Moxley will be making his Game Changer Wrestling debut at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 2 on September 14 in Atlantic City, NJ.

Bloodsport events feature matches that must end in either a knockout or submission. The ring features no ropes or turnbuckles, and the matches are presented in a MMA style. Although these bouts are worked, competitors work stuff and the matches have a semi-shoot feel.

At the last Bloodsport event Josh Barnett and Minoru Suzuki worked until a time-limit draw.

GCW and Josh Barnett are teaming up to bring back one of the most talked about events of the year when Bloodsport comes to The Showboat in Atlantic City on Saturday, September 14th!

It’s the ultimate hybrid. MMA meets Pro Wrestling in the most intense, physical, and groundbreaking event in years. Who will survive when shit gets real?
