Matt Hardy addresses John Oliver's criticism of WWE
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/14/2019 at 02:58 PM


In an interview with FoxNews.com, Matt Hardy commented on HBO host John Oliver's criticism towards WWE over not taking enough care of its talent:

"When I first started here … the locker room and everything was like the wild wild west then. The change that has happened in those 20-plus years has been unreal. I mean, now the drug testing is very stringent … You have to be here, and you have to be good and you have to be on top of your game. You have to be a professional. The physicals they do as far as cardiovascular and just checking you over and over — [there have] been several guys they caught that have had serious [health] issues that could have been life threatening if they didn’t catch it here, and just the way they take care of you.” Hardy explained. “Every surgery I ever had, WWE has paid for. They’re very faithful and very good about that. It’s just some of the stuff that the John [Oliver] talked about was kind of passé, kind of outdated because now they really do [take care of wrestlers’ health]. They take care of everything especially stuff that happens in house. As far as the whole health insurance thing, that’s kind of a different argument, because we do a different gig in many many ways. But WWE has never done anything but be great to me. They’ve taken care of me in every capacity, every front, and they’ve given me a great life. I mean, one of the characters I play is Big Money Matt, who’s like this millionaire that’s been around for a long time, and you know there’s a lot of truth to it in some ways, and I wouldn’t have that persona and I wouldn’t have the great life that I have right now if it wasn’t for WWE."
