    Raven and some other just attempted a lawsuit challenging WWE's independent contractor status for the rasslers. It didn't go anywhere. There's no way a class action like you describe goes anywhere if they're not employees.
    Ummm, that is horseshit. Being classified an independent contractor makes little difference (being under contract sort of negates that) and the small group a few years ago needed more workers and better lawyers.

    Yeah. A tag team is a good venue for that. A managerial role is also a good idea.

    I don't understand this idea that they think everyone should talk. Especially people who are green. They always shove a mike in the hand of someone who is green and just go "Do something." I don't understand that idea of just shoving dudes in the deep end and let them struggle.

    Look at Titus O'Neil- that dude SUCKED as a solo guy on NXT. Now he doesn't haven't to carry a segment by himself, barking like a dog- Darren Young can be the lead talker and Titus can chime in with a line or well-placed animal noise.

    Give them a gimmick/name and both guys can get over.

    Yeah. Tag Teams are great. I don't understand why Vince and management is so against the idea of Tag Teams.

    Exactly

    Yes, unionizing wouldn't hurt them, but does WWE still classify their wrestlers that way? I'm pretty sure they stopped that practice even before they went public given the wrestlers have exclusive contracts, benefits, stock options, a cut of merchandise sales, health insurance, etc. My understanding is that in the days before big exclusive deals when wrestlers (like strippers) were free to work all over this was common, but I haven't heard anything about WWE workers being listed as independent contractors in many many years.

    re: smackdown tag teams

    titus and darren young as obnoxious bullies who bite chris tucker is entertaining. i just don't think 'ZEKE should be jobbed like this! also, racist segments are p unchill, guise.

    i wish they'd push the usos (super talented, good face spots and strong workers who have charisma) and epico/primo (let rosa be a strong mouthpiece and sick them against those she despises. if you ever wish to turn them face, simply have them rebel against her control and awaken to how manipulative and domineering she is).

    considering their need for midcard faces, kofi probably shouldn't be tethered to a partner right now, and evan really was an ideal companion. however, they should scoop up any midcarder who they even remotely have faith in and pair them with one another to preserve them from jobville. hell, they've clearly lost faith in miz for the time being. miz as the nauseating, annoying mouth piece paired with any big enforcer is the perfect dynamic. you want to see the repugnant asshole get beat up, but his buddy gets tagged in and saves him.

    damien sandow is a dork. "didactic, faux-intellectual elitist preaches to everyone and tells them he'll save them from their stupidity" is boring. he talks well in those vignettes and he has good facials, tho.

    Titus' forearms are scary long. One of those is going to snap one day. They could be a good team though. I'm really liking Smackdown with all the new stuff going on and My Boi Dee Bry at the top. I almost marked out when I thought they were gonna let CLaudio do the cradle piledriver. But he's still rad.
