Default Are Wrestlers Employees or Independent Contractors?

In 2008, a few former WWE wrestlers started a class action case against the WWE claiming that they should be considered employees and not independent contractors. A loss by the WWE in this case could be very costly for the company. Not only will this increase future costs for the company, a loss could set in motion a case by the IRS for back taxes due to improper classifications.

The wrestlers deserve some sort of health care and retirement plan. There is no reason why a wrestler should be without such plans. Some are forced to still work the indy circuit late in life not because they love the business but because they have no other redeeming skills. Really how sad is it to see a pro wrestling hero over the age of 65 still working matches when they can barely walk.
