Stephanie McMahon Addresses WWE Not Providing Health Insurance To Wrestlers (Video)


Stephanie McMahon appeared on Ad Age Remotely this week for an in-depth interview, during which the WWE Chief Brand Officer spoke about the company ensuring their talent's health and wellness despite not providing health insurance.

"Our talent are all independent contractors, so we actually don’t provide medical insurance for our talent," Stephanie said. "We do however have — we pay for all injuries, any surgeries or anything related to all in-ring injuries, but we also have substance and abuse protocols that we offer our talent, both current and retired."

She would go on to elaborate a bit more on offering coverage to the performers in terms of health and wellness.

"So anyone that’s ever had issues with drug and alcohol abuse, they can be a part of this program," she added. "And WWE itself, for our employees, we do have health, medical and overall wellness and mental health [coverage]."
