    For over 30 years, WWE has became the one travelling circus(along with the defunct WCW) of a wrestling promotion that seems to never end. Their cards are held in different cities in the US, Canada, and some parts of Europe and so on, almost everyday. Two weekly shows, live house shows, occasional ppvs, but when will their top wrestlers ever rest?

    There should be a one month holiday. These superstar wrestlers need time away from the shows. All that traveling in between arenas are a headache I betcha.

    They all know what they are signing up for when become a professional wrestler. Have there been marriages destroyed because of wrestling? Absolutely. It takes severe understanding by both parties to know that it's the sort of life you live when you partake in wrestling.

    USA pays WWE big money, and they or whoever buys their tv rights is about to pay them a ton more, they don’t want WWE to have an off-season.

    I wouldn't say have an offseason but rotate people out and give them a month off once a year.

    Problem is most wrestlers don't want to miss their prime earning years unless they're forced to by an injury. Also, WWE doesn't write storylines far enough in advance to plan breaks for each wrestler. If someone is burnt out and needs a break they will pull them from the road for a couple weeks but more than that is hard to fit into ongoing storylines.

    You have to remember wrestlers aren't employees they are independent contractors. They don't get paid time off with their spot saved for them. If you don't work you doon't get paid and if you don't work someone else will take your spot and your money. It's that simple. This is why you don't hear wrestlers talk about taking regular time off, only fans.

    We'll never see an off-season in wrestling like the other main sports have.
