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
have taken precautions regarding concussion protocol and shots to the head but this all took effect after Benoit committed murder-suicide. There were two class action lawsuits filed that I found, with several of the wrestlers mentioned in your piece already dead. The first filing
was on July 17, 2008 and the second was on November 03, 2017 (available in PDF formats in a simple Google search). Overall your piece was excellent and I hope that this garners enough attention so that wrestlers finally have their benefits.
