On Sunday’s episode of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver went hard at WWE CEO Vince McMahon and the way the WWE treats its superstars.

“While the character Vince is an asshole, it’s important to know that the real Vince is also an asshole,” Oliver said. “Many fans legitimately hate him because while the WWE has made him a billionaire, many wrestlers say he’s treated them terribly.”

Watch below: 

Now the WWE has responded to Oliver’s piece.

They’ve issued the following statement regarding Oliver’s remarks via Deadline.

“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 statement continued. “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.”

I doubt Oliver disliking the WWE will affect the wrestling organization. 

There’s probably not much of a crossover of Last Week Tonight fans and the WWE.
