Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, tested positive for COVID-19 and from there it was learned that he had never actually been vaccinated. Earlier in the season, he said he was vaccinated against the virus.
Rodgers, however, had limited himself to saying that he was immunized, without adding anything else. Speaking shortly after the news, Rodgers confirmed that he was not vaccinated and did not even intend to do so. He motivated his decision by citing theses without scientific basis, however, suggested by Joe Rogan, author of a very popular podcast and known for his very controversial ideas about him.
After much public outcry, the NFL fined the Green Bay Packers $ 300,000 and quarterback and teammate Allen Lazard $ 14,650. Both have in fact violated the anti-contagion rules, not having worn the mask during press conferences and having attended a Halloween party.
He said about the issue: "Nobody can tell me what to inject into my body. I have used homeopathic treatments to strengthen my immune system. I would like to add one thing: as the great Martin Luther King said, we have a moral obligation to rebel against unfair rules that have no logic.
I know that now my stance will be politicized but I don't give a damn. I'm not doing it for that, it's not my goal." "He is selfish, self-centered and arrogant. He thinks the world revolves around him and the rules apply only to others," wrote Usa Today about him, with the press heavily criticizing the NFL star.
Is Charlotte Flair leaving WWE?
This week in Writing With Russo, a format where the former WWE booker analyzes the main topics of WWE and AEW, Russo spoke about the situation between the McMahon company and Charlotte Flair.
According to the man, in fact, the Queen could ask for his release shortly, with the WWE who, however, will not want to grant it to him, forcing her to still respect the years she has on the contract, which we know to be a little longer, even if we do not have the precise number.
These are his words: "So now we're going to play this little game of chess. Probably, I think, she'll ask for her release, and I don't think they'll let her. They'll make her life hell. I don't know the terms of her contract, brother.
I don't know how long he's under contract, but in the end, brother, he's probably going to have to use it until that contract is done. " Russo himself also said a few days ago: "When you get to the point that you are unhappy and you don't want to work for that company anymore, and you make it up in your mind… Let's take a look at Charlotte Flair, brother.
Her husband [boyfriend] is in AEW, WWE has treated her father like shit about her over the years. Brother, you can make any price of any kind to Tony Khan [president AEW ed], any price, and you know it." Russo also said that no amount of money would have been enough to entice Charlotte Flair to stay if she had already decided to leave WWE psychologically, remembering her days in WCW.
"I negotiated a two-year contract for a million dollars, like. For two years, because I was going to save everything and was going to end it, plus brother, I got bonuses, incentives and things like that. I swear to God, Chris , three months later, three months later, I was on the phone with my lawyer and I said, 'I don't care what you have to do, get me out of this deal.'
And brother, I don't have Charlotte Flair's money, I don't have the money of a wrestler, but there was two years, two million dollars and I was like, get me out of this. So, money doesn't matter. All the money in the world won't make her happy."
