WWE Checking up to Make Sure Talents Have Health Insurance

The WWE has told talent that they will start doing random checks to make sure the talents under contract have health insurance, which is part of being hired by the WWE. The company pays for all costs regarding injuries in the ring and for rehab but if they find out someone does not have insurance, then the company will stop using them until they update their policy. These checks will reportedly go into effect on 2/21.
