AEW’s Jake Hager has taken a shot at Stephanie McMahon on Twitter. Hager was responding to a Tweet from McMahon that was celebrating WWE being named 2020 Corporation of the Year by PR News.
“Lmao. I guess lying about over 37 million in quarterly profits , so you can fire over 300 people, during a worldwide pandemic is a category for an award?”
Hager tagged politician and former Presidential candidate Andrew Yang in his post. Yang has promised that if he is in a cabinet position after the US Presidential election, he will bring changes to WWE’s policy of classifying wrestlers as independent contractors. He responded to Hager’s post.
Yang was recently interviewed by Chris Van Vliet and spoke about this issue.
“You should know Chris, this is not like ‘I’m going to talk about this and forget about it’. This bothers me and I’m not going to rest until something changes,” Yang said about WWE’s independent contractor policy,” he said.
