WWE Invites John Oliver to WrestleMania After "Last Week Tonight" HBO Segment

John Oliver slams Vince Mc Mahon and the WWE in a scathing segment

If you have 23 minutes to spare on Monday and you're a WWE fan - or even if you just follow professional wrestling casually, or if you're just a human being who doesn't care about it - you should use them to watch this segment from John Oliver.

Oliver described Vince McMahon as an "a**hole" in both his on-screen character and his real-life persona, and played clips from the likes of Jesse Ventura and Bret "The Hitman" Hart criticising McMahon for past actions.

During an episode of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, Oliver talked about WWE's treatment of in-ring performers.

Oliver pointed out that Wrestlemania, due to return next week earned $930.2 million in revenue previous year, making it the sixth most lucrative sport in TV rights.

Indira Gandhi International Airport named best Indian airport by Skytrax report
Singapore's Changi Airport was named for the seventh Time in a row the best airport in the world. The second place victor was Tokyo Haneda , gaining one spot since last year's awards.

As we previously reported, WWE sent us a statement regarding that segment, claiming that Oliver "ignored the facts" and saying that they had responded to the "producers refuting every point in his one-sided presentation".

Oliver conceded that the league has taken positive steps in the past few years, such as banning chair shots to the head. "When you've lost the moral high ground to the f-- NFL, you are morally subterranean".

With Wrestlemania happening next Sunday, Oliver encouraged fans in the audience to make their voices be heard via signs and chants during the event so that McMahon can give these wrestlers better working conditions.

"Because given that Business Hulk here", referring to Vince McMahon, "is a billionaire on the broken backs of his non-employees, the very least he could do is show the same dedication to wrestlers that they have shown to his company".
