Dear @iamjohnoliver & @LastWeekTonight team,

I want to express my gratitude for covering an often ignored topic among #WWE and its fanbase, the working conditions. While the average layperson may be focusing their attention on the jokes, I wanted to address one issue you either
avoided for time constraint or because it was a sensitive topic: the death of wrestler Chris Benoit and the murder of his wife and child. As unforgivable as this crime was, it is important to understand that he too suffered many chair shots during his career and multiple
concussions. A former wrestler and co-founder of the Concussion Legacy Foundation Chris Nowinski, convinced Benoit's father to run tests on his son's brain. The results showed that Benoit had the brain of an 85 year old Alzheimer's patient. abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=3… The WWE may

Thank you @iamjohnoliver for exposing the fraud that is the Independent Contractor status of #WWE talent. Guess what it doesn’t just apply to the wrestlers, but also their announce team.

I was an “independent contractor” that was required to report to work on certain days
For certain hours. I was given a corporate email address, a corporate computer, a corporate cell phone. I was given no health insurance or any other benefits. I was given the ability to expense clothing and meals on the main roster, except...
The reimbursement was paid to me with my normal salary, which just increased the tax liabilities. So I essentially was double taxed on things I was told to buy. Hey go buy 1000 dollar suit with your money, we will reimburse you, oh but that increased your salary and tax burden

Morning! In response to some of the tweets we're seeing online about @WWE and @WWERomanReigns we wanted to have a little chat about leukaemia/leukemia, relapse and perceptions of cancer. #WWE @davemeltzerWON
THIS.IS.A.THREAD!
Firstly, incredible news about Roman Reigns. Relapse is a scary reality for all leukaemia patients. Either fear of your cancer returning or having to face treatment for relapse. It's great to hear some positive news from a leukaemia patient.
The tweets we are seeing mainly centre around the idea of what a cancer patient should look like.

"How can he have hair?"
"How can he have not lost weight?"
"Why doesn't he look like a cancer patient?"

Nia Jax #WWE thread - a history of botches.

Nia Jax botches a shoulder breaker on Charlotte Flair, dropping her face first onto her knee.
Even the referee reacted to Jax's botched shoulder breaker to Flair.
Same match, Nia Jax fails to catch Charlotte Flair's moonsault, and Flair crashes face first to the outside.

🤔 The mass market media, by and large, have leveled the criticism that @realDonaldTrump is a 'reality TV' president... Yet they seemingly expect a #WWE style throw down at the joint press conference with #Putin
It's a public press conference... Can read between the lines a little a little, but everything said are 🐂💩 formalities and pleasantries... That's how these these things works.
Of course pointing out this kind of irony is akin to pointing out water in the middle of the ocean. #justSaying

THREAD: I went back and watched the 2014 Royal Rumble and compared it to testimony in the CM Punk-Colt Cabana libel trial vs. WWE’s Dr. Amann.

Here are some notable points:
Footage of Kofi Kingston clotheslining Punk from the Rumble is shown in court. Punk confirms the clothesline gave him a concussion.

[this was the only Kofi-Punk clothesline I saw. It took place 10 min into match]
Amann recalls that about 30 minutes into the match, he came to Punk’s side and knelt on the ground outside the ring.

[I didn’t see this on cam. Looks like it happened here — 20 min after clothesline. At this point, it appeared Punk had communicated a handful of times w/ refs]

My thought's on the current state of #qanon #greatawakening.

I've followed #qanon from the start and believe that it's legit.

Thread
1) We're entering a period of high stress. Good things are happening but mostly going unreported.

#Fakenews MSM is being distracted by shiny objects like stormy and the mueller probe. #qanon
2) Generally i've agreed with @jeromecorsi The money side doesn't bother me as income allows more opportunity to further the message. #qanon #WWG1WGA

To me the dirt sheets have been really blatant with their favoritism the last month or so. In a job where its hard to get straight answers
(and your allowed to NOT name sources) its hella difficult to tell whats what. Most people can see the spins but most people are also bias.
