“Don’t Contact Them or They’ll Bury You”” – AEW Superstar Details The Toxic Work Culture in WWE

Published 05/03/2021, 9:56 AM EDT


A pleasant work environment is a must, regardless of where one works. If a doctor doesn’t have a suitable workspace, then he or she cannot treat their patients right. Similarly, if a wrestler doesn’t get a suitable work environment, then they won’t be able to perform to their optimum levels. AEW star John Silver recently spoke out as a victim of the same by WWE.

On April 28, 2021, John Silver appeared as a guest on ‘The Angle Podcast’, where he talked about WWE’s work environment and more. Silver talked about his experience with AEW as compared to WWE, saying,

“It’s not a good feeling even though you’re happy to do it. There are plenty of people who are nice, but there’s also plenty that won’t even look at you. Like you better not even go near them. Like don’t contact them or they’ll bury you. It’s a little too much. In AEW, I like when people come up to me and say who they are and introduce themselves. You’re walking on eggshells constantly in WWE, and it’s really not a fun thing to do besides eat their catering. Doing extra work was awful there.”

John Silver seems quite happy since joining AEW. He has put his WWE past behind him and is focused only on his future.

He recently locked horns with the AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin for the title. Unfortunately for Silver, not only did he not manage to secure the victory but also injured his shoulder in the process.

Thankfully, he’ll be alright soon and will be back before long as suggested by his tweet.

Superstars on WWE work environment

Over the years, many former WWE wrestlers have spoken out about WWE’s awful workspace. A lot of the blame usually boils down to Vince McMahon and his poor management.

On the contrary, wrestlers who do well in WWE have a different opinion on the matter. They always praise the working environment in WWE and claim that it is the best.

Thus, overall, the situation depends on the perception of the viewer. We as fans are not sure whom to believe at this point. Regardless of the matter, WWE keeps on churning out new talents for their company who do quite well in the business.
