Jesse Ventura Slams WWE On ESPN

PW Torch’s James Caldwell has a recap of Jesse Ventura’s interview with Colin Cowheard on ESPN Radio this morning. Ventura called the business a joke, focusing on WWE’s classification of wrestlers as independent contractors and the lack of a union:

“How can you be an independent contractor when you’re told when to wrestle, who to wrestle, and you can’t wrestle for another promotion?” Ventura said.

Ventura did acknowledge that he hosted RAW all of a week before slamming the company:

“You see what a jerk I am, I just did his show and here I am causing him problems,” he said.

Ventura said the believed the business would be different had other wrestlers joined him in his lawsuit against WWE for royalties.
