WWE Segment On HBO's 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver'

John Oliver Talks Independent Contractor Situation In WWE On “Last Week Tonight”

Heading into their biggest media week of the year, WWE was once again the focus of a topic discussed at length on Sunday night’s episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO.

The 23-minute segment focused on WWE and Vince McMahon and how talent in the company are considered independent contractors instead of employees, and don’t receive the proper benefits as a result.

Oliver spoke about how if you are a WWE fan, you have a voice — and you should use it. He pointed to WWE making moves based off of fan campaigns, bringing up the “Give Dives A Chance” movement on social media, WrestleMania being headlined by a women’s match for the first time in history this year and more.
