John Oliver takes a deep dive into the dark side of WWE

Wrestling, as John Oliver makes clear in the video above, is ridiculously fun to watch. It just is.

But it’s not without its problems. In a 20-minute monologue for Last Week Tonight, Oliver breaks down the issues faced by those working under billionaire Vince McMahon at the WWE.

“The shocking thing about McMahon and his company is the extent to which he’s shielded himself from responsibility for his wrestlers’ welfare,” says Oliver, before launching into a breakdown of the many things wrong with the company — from the fact its wrestlers aren’t technically classed as employees to the WWE’s failure to care for the health of those working for it.

The WWE responded on Monday with a statement, saying they before the show aired they had “responded to his producers refuting every point in his one-sided presentation. John Oliver simply ignored the facts.” They added, “The health and wellness of our performers is the single most important aspect of our business, and we have a comprehensive, longstanding Talent Wellness program.” They’ve invited Oliver to attend WrestleMania this weekend.
