    Well, this is interesting. The independent contractor model has been controversial for many years, as I'm sure you're all aware. Now, it may be hitting the fan.

    I hope the state prevails in this. If nothing else, maybe a new law will be enacted giving the workers full employee rights.

    That's pretty interesting, I don't think that the state is going to win the case due to independent contractors have to comepensate for their own health insurance. But I am with you Tucker, I hope the state somehow wins, but if they win not only should it apply to the WWE, but it should be applied towards all independent contractors.

    I think this whole thing is a long time coming...it would be excellent for the wrestlers but I don't really see it getting passed but I hope I'm wrong.

    I mean, if the WWE is going to fork out money for rehab then what's wrong with health benefits too?

    I'd love to see this, like everyone else; the wrestlers have such an physically, mentally, and time intensive profession. They deserve at least normal treatment, lol.

    To me its a Sport wrapped in a Drama.

    Both Athletes and Actors have their respective Associations or Unions... and it kinda blows my mind that the Wrestlers dont have a "Pro Wrestlers Association" that provides these kinda benefits that both Athletes and Actors have.

    As its been said, long time coming.
