WWE has allegedly been approaching wrestlers who are still under contract with rival promotions, which is not okay.
We currently live in a world where the wrestling business is stronger than it has been for two decades. There might not yet be a promotion that can compete with WWE, but there are a litany of successful alternatives right below them. If you don't like what WWE is dishing out, you can simply switch your attention to Ring Of Honor, New Japan, Impact Wrestling, or any number of other promotions doing well at the moment.
Ultimately, when the independent circuit is doing well, WWE does well, and vice versa. One of the main reasons WWE benefits from the success of the indies is due to them signing top talent from other companies. Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, even CM Punk. All top stars in WWE who made names for themselves elsewhere. In ROH with those three particular examples.
Whether you like WWE signing all of the world's best wrestling talent or not, the ultimate goal of most in the business is to compete for WWE. If they make it to a point where they're good enough to catch the company's eye, they'll likely take them up on an offer if they get one. What WWE, and any other promotion for that matter, has to be careful of is when exactly they make them that offer.
As reported by What Culture in the video above, promoters from some companies have made a pretty serious accusation. Apparently, the unnamed promoters have divulged with Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer that WWE has approached wrestlers of theirs before their contracts are up. Not only is that extremely unprofessional, but it is also against the law.
This is all hearsay and accusations for now, of course, but if there is any truth to the allegations, it will not be good for WWE. Some fans and wrestlers are already annoyed by what WWE is currently doing with the British scene. If it is also trying to tempt wrestlers away from rivals while they still have contracts elsewhere, it will be very bad news for WWE. Here's hoping that when WWE signs exciting new talent, it is all done properly and above board.
