WWE has a lot going on with the company right now. Whether it is the controversy over their Saudi Arabia deal or people pulling to start a wrestler’s union in the company, things are very complicated.
It turns out that this complication backstage has resulted in Superstars being unhappy. WWE has new tactics in keeping their Superstars from asking for their release by creating a scare tactic as well.
Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Live that the mood backstage in WWE is not good right now. When asked if it is the worse it’s been since the Kliq’s era, he explained:
“All I can tell you is that morale in WWE is so bad and I’ve heard it from multiple people and I’ve heard it like they’ll say that ‘morale is bad’ and I say, ‘I’ve heard’ and they’ll say. ‘no, really bad.’ So it’s probably the worst it’s ever been, I’m not sure. I know it was bad in the wake of the invasion. I know some people were unhappy for different reasons and obviously The Kliq made some people’s lives miserable and not everybody’s. In ’96, ’97, ’98 I know things turned around people were making a lot of money so maybe the early 90’s, but it’s bad.”
Hopefully, things can turn around, but it seems like there are a lot of factors at play backstage that are getting in the way of Superstars having a good time with their jobs. It’s hard to pinpoint just one thing that is making everyone unhappy, but there definitely seems to be a morale problem in WWE right now.
