    Linda McMahon Congressional Campaign article in this week's Wall Street Journal

    .
    The article mentioned that the WWE categorizes its talents as independent contractors and does not pay FICA/Medicare taxes, workers compensation unemployment insurance or offer health insurance to its talents.

    Interesting, if this is true. Can't see how the talents are independent when they are given a schedule of when and where they should be at a given point of time. Some contingent liabilities?
    What would be the potential financial impact on the company? Should this be disclosed?
