In response to John Oliver’s HBO rant on “Last Week Tonight” WWE has reached out to Oliver and invited him to WrestleMania 35.
John Oliver is clearly a clever and humorous entertainer, however the subject matter covered in his WWE segment is no laughing matter.
Prior to airing, WWE responded to his producers refuting every point in his one-sided presentation. John Oliver simply ignored the facts.
The health and wellness of our performers is the single most important aspect of our business, and we have a comprehensive, longstanding Talent Wellness program.
We invite John Oliver to attend WrestleMania this Sunday to learn more about our company.source – http://www.prowrestlingsheet.com/wwe-invites-john-oliver-wrestlemania/#.XKJhxJhKjIU
There is no word yet on if Oliver has responded or accepted the invition. The video has already been removed by HBO and one has to wonder if WWE was in any way involved in that happening.
More news as it comes. Clearly, WWE is trying to turn this into more press for the big show this weekend and knowing how good at promotion they are, it will probably work.
We did find in our viewing of the video that there were certainly some good points raised by Oliver, but like WWE, we believe many items were left out of the well-produced piece that should have been included.
