According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE talent are to receive ‘healthy relationship’ counselling.
The report which was published in latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter states that said talks will be mandatory for all WWE talent and will transpire on October 28 via Zoom as the company places a greater emphasis on relationships being healthy within their ranks.
WWE’s first ‘healthy relationship talk’ will be conducted by a company called Total Life Counselling and will be a main presentation to touch base with every member of the promotion’s roster.
After that, a second session will be offered in order to focus on individual breakout sessions. It will aim to allow talent to ask important questions in smaller groups in order to attain a better idea of the standard of behaviour both in personal and professional relationships.
WWE’s latest initiative is reportedly an effort from the company to help change the culture of the industry after the Speaking Out movement, which affected the professional wrestling industry as a whole.
There are several real life couples currently on WWE’s roster across Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown and NXT. These include Corey Graves and Carmella, Nikki Cross and Killian Dain, Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch, Edge and Beth Phoenix as well as Triple H and Stephanie McMahon Levesque.
