WWE has gained quite the notoriety by raiding the independent pro-wrestling promotions in the past few years. One of the top talents in the company gives his two cents about why this happens.
SmackDown LIVE Superstar Samoa Joe was recently interviewed by Popculture.com during WWE’s European Tour. There, the Destroyer talked about WWE raiding out the indie feds and why it is justified.
Joe said that the reason why this is good is that the indie feds don’t pay their talent for what they are worth. He said that WWE doesn’t do this with their talent, unlike the indie feds.
Hey, you know whose fault it is, that your favorite wrestler got bought out? The company he was working for, cause they were too cheap to pay him what he was worth. So he should get paid what he’s worth, and if WWE comes and pays him what he’s worth, that’s on your sorry ass. Get the money right. And start paying these dudes.
Joe said that anyone who doesn’t want the talented indie wrestlers to get rich can kiss his rear end. He said that by doing this, WWE ensures that they win and so do the talents they hire.
There are too many crazy talented dudes out there that aren’t getting paid, and if you have a problem with WWE making those dudes rich, you can kiss my ass. Cause those dudes deserve to be rich, cause they’re talented as hell.
It’s funny because people are like, ‘oh, well that’s kind of messed up,’ No. No. That’s how you win. That’s why they’re the number one company in the world. You go out there and you get the best dudes. You don’t get mad at a tiger for being a tiger.
