Another big company cutback has to do with the WWE production crew. This is a pretty big deal. The company used to provide buses for the crew on Sunday to Monday on pay-per-view weeks and Monday and Tuesday every week for the TV tapings. The crew would break down at about 1am, get in the bus, then sleep on the bus and they’d be driven to the next arena where they would get up early and set up for the next show. Now that there is no bus they have to drive and those drive can be a few hours without sleep or almost no sleep. When they had the bus they could even get sleep after set up before the show started. There’s a feeling that many will be looking to go elsewhere if they can find better work.
