WWE has a lot of things going on backstage in the company, and they have a way to make sure that a number of those things stay under wraps even after an employee is no longer under the company’s roof.
During a recent conversation on the F4W Online boards, Dave Meltzer chimed into a conversation about former WWE employees and stars trashing the company after their exit. He noted that the company now has anyone sign a non disparagement agreement.
“The guys now have to sign clauses where they can be sued if they talk about inside stuff after they leave their positions.”
Ringside News asked around about this and we have confirmed that this is standard practice for employees of WWE. They must sign on the dotted line agreeing to not talk trash about the company after their exit. This is standard for a lot of larger companies now, and WWE is no exception.
People like Eric Bischoff will address his WWE exit, but he never goes into much detail. The most he said about his release in recent memory was that it wasn’t a healthy environment for him in a creative sense.
