David Starr Reveals He Turned Down WWE Due To Lack Of Health Care

Super Strong Style 16 tournament winner speaks out...

David Starr defeated Artemis Spencer, Travis Banks and Ilja Dragunov over the last few days en route to the finals of PROGRESS Wrestling's Super Strong Style 16 tournament.

Starr would then defeat NXT UK’s Jordan Devlin in the finals, winning a shot at the current WWE United Kingdom, PROGRESS ATLAS and World Champion WALTER down the line.

The Product was recently interviewed by WrestleTalk and revealed that he has turned down WWE's advances more than once in the past: “I’ve been contacted by them before and I’ve turned it down a couple of times.

"The thing that doesn’t hit home with the European audience is the health care thing. Because you’re very fortunate to just go to the hospital. That’s one of the reasons I moved to the UK. Being a professional wrestler, it’s hard to afford healthcare, the things you need."

Of course, WWE's treatment of their independently contracted stars in terms of the healthcare offered has been making all kinds of headlines over recent weeks thanks to John Oliver's 'Last Week Tonight" segment.
