WWE Budget Cuts Reportedly Causing Problems For The Road Crew

Find out why…
According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via WrestleZone), the recent WWE budget cuts have reportedly become an issue for the WWE road crew.
The WWE road crew used to get access to a bus on Mondays and Tuesday (and on PPV weekends Sunday and Monday). Once they were done taking down the sets, they would sleep in the bus at the location and drive to the next arena the following day to set up the next show. Following the WWE starting budget cuts (reportedly $20 million worth) the bus has been taken away and the crew has to drive themselves to the next town.
This is cutting into their sleep time following events. Also without the bus, they no longer have a place to relax and or nap during the day. Word is that the crew is exhausted, and there is a feeling that some may consider looking for other work.
