Alexa Bliss has no issue with being labeled as an Independent contractor because the company takes care of her and the rest of the talent.
Appearing on Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend, Rosen asked a fan question that wondered how Alexa felt about being labeled as an Independent contractor given the criticism of such status and whether she's ever felt pressured to perform despite being injured.
Alexa replied, "WWE takes care of us 100%. We are in a contract and anything that happens inside the ring, WWE takes care of. Our health is 100% priority with the company. Unfortunately, we're living in the middle of 'cancel culture' where people try to start rumors and make their assumptions of things. There's never been a time where I've ever felt uncomfortable being in the ring or forced to be in the ring. When I was injured, I had concussions, and Vince said, 'alright, we're going to send you to the best specialist there is,' and he did. I saw a concussion specialist and they went above and beyond to take care of me. I know everyone feels that way."
WWE has faced much backlash over classifying talents as Independent contractors while restricting third-party platform access in recent months. The majority of talent have complimented WWE for how they've handled in-ring injuries, saying they've been well taken care of.
