During a conversation with Andrew Yang on the latest episode of Talk is Jericho, Chris Jericho spoke about how he doesn’t get any royalties from WWE for his matches airing on the WWE Network.
Here is what he had to say:
“Yeah, exactly,” Yang agreed. “You should be getting residuals. One of the things that someone’s raised is that Screen Actors Guild protections are really–I mean, you can see how the Hollywood folks get treated, and a lot of a lot of performers, actually, would qualify for a Screen Actors Guild by the basis that you’re on TV, you have lines [and] you show up. I mean, the ratings of wrestling shows are higher than just about any other show on TV. You’re a talent, a performer, you’re getting a script [and] you do your thing.”
