The contract with NBCUniversal expires in Each episode will be 20 minutes long and will air at 10 p. The company has actively marketed itself as a publicly traded company through presentations at investor conferences and other investor relations initiatives.

As of , the company's Board of Directors has nine members: Goldfarb, President of Fullbridge, Inc. WWE signs most of their talent to exclusive contracts, meaning talent can appear or perform only on WWE programming and events.

They are not permitted to appear or perform for another promotion, unless special arrangements are made beforehand. WWE keeps all wrestlers' salary, employment length, benefits, and all other contract details strictly private. WWE classifies its professional wrestlers as independent contractors and not as employees. A study by the University of Louisville Law Review found that after applying the Internal Revenue Service IRS factor test, 16 factors "clearly indicate that wrestlers are employees".

However, as a result of WWE terming them as independent contractors, "the wrestlers are denied countless benefits to which they would otherwise be entitled". The World Wrestling Federation had a drug-testing policy in place as early as , initially run by an in-house administrator. In , wrestlers were subjected to independent testing for anabolic steroids for the first time.

The Talent Wellness Program is a comprehensive drug, alcohol, and cardiac screening program initiated in February , shortly after the sudden death of one of their highest profile talents, year-old Eddie Guerrero. After the double-murder and suicide committed by one of its performers, Chris Benoit , with a possible link to steroid abuse encouraged by WWE, the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform requested that WWE turn over any material regarding its talent wellness policy.

In August , WWE and its employees defended the program in the wake of several busts of illegal pharmacy that linked WWE performers to steroid purchases even after the policy was put into place. Ten professional wrestlers were suspended for violating the Wellness Policy after reports emerged they were all customers of Signature Pharmacy in Orlando, Florida. According to a statement attributed to WWE attorney Jerry McDevitt, an eleventh wrestler was later added to the suspension list.

Because of the Wellness Policy, physicians were able to diagnose one of its performers with a heart ailment that would otherwise likely have gone unnoticed until it was too late. Hassan Assad was diagnosed with Wolff—Parkinson—White syndrome , [86] which can be potentially fatal if gone undiagnosed. The ailment was discovered while Assad was going through a routine Wellness Policy checkup.

On September 13, , WWE updated their list of banned substances to include muscle relaxers. During the s and s, Dr. Nailz testified that McMahon had ordered him to use steroids, but his credibility was called into question during his testimony as he repeatedly stated that he "hated" McMahon.

The jury would later acquit McMahon of the charges and he resumed his role in the day-to day operations of the WWF. This led to a series of lawsuits filed by both companies as the Monday Night War heated up. The lawsuit went on for years, ending with a settlement in The suit alleged that Wittenstein violated a non-disclosure agreement and shared confidential information with the WWE which represented a comparative advantage in negotiating with wrestling talent under contract with TNA.

WWF broke kayfabe by having television commentator Jim Ross repeatedly tell those watching live on pay-per-view that what had just transpired was not a wrestling angle or storyline and that Hart was hurt badly, emphasizing the seriousness of the situation.

The cause of death was later revealed to be internal bleeding from blunt force trauma. The WWF management controversially chose to continue the event. In , fifteen years after his death, the WWE Network aired the event for the first time. A small photo tribute is shown before the start informing fans that Hart died during the original broadcast.

All footage of Hart was edited out of the event. In , Titan Sports had entered into an agreement with the World Wide Fund for Nature also trademarked WWF , an environmental organization, regarding Titan's use of the "WWF" acronym, which both organizations had been using since at least March Under the agreement, Titan had agreed to cease using the written acronym "WWF" in connection with its wrestling promotion, and to minimize though not eliminate spoken uses of "WWF" on its broadcasts, particularly in scripted comments.

In exchange, the environmental group and its national affiliates agreed to drop any pending litigation against Titan, and furthermore agreed not to challenge Titan's use of the full "World Wrestling Federation" name or the promotion's then-current logo.

Additionally, past references to the WWF trademark and initials in 'specified circumstances' became censored. Furthermore, the company could still make use of the full "World Wrestling Federation" and "World Wrestling Federation Entertainment" names without consequence.

Here Comes The Pain. The case was resolved on both sides with a settlement that saw WWE purchase the catalogue outright in January Warrior and the WWF engaged in a series of lawsuits and legal actions in and , [] where both parties sought a declaration that they owned the characters, Warrior and Ultimate Warrior, under both contract and copyright law.

The court ruled that Warrior was legally entitled to use the gimmick, costuming, face paint designs, and mannerisms of the "Warrior" character. The DVD featured clips of his more notable feuds and matches along with commentary from WWE stars past and present most of which are unflattering.

Day , made disparaging remarks towards gays and lesbians, criticized Heath Ledger 's parenting style after Ledger's death, and expressed rejoicing when Bobby Heenan was diagnosed with cancer.

During his induction, he mentioned that WWE should create an award to honor those behind the scenes called the Jimmy Miranda Award, named after a long time WWE employee who died. Since Warrior's death, WWE has been accused of whitewashing and ignoring Warrior's bigoted and controversial past comments.

In , Sports Illustrated stated that Layfield "has been accused for years of being a locker room bully", [] while Deadspin wrote that "backstage tales of Layfield's hazing and bullying have long been legend among hardcore wrestling fans.

Layfield admitted to hazing Miz and said that he did not regret doing so. WWE addressed my behavior and I responded accordingly, yet my past is being brought up because of recent unfounded rumors.
