Does McMahon seem like a guy who is concerned about the health and safety of his "independent contractors," or like someone who is more interested in exploiting them?

Sadly, Drozdov was paralyzed during an match not long after this clip was filmed. It's probably to the McMahon's credit that Drozdov is currently employed (in a non-performing capacity) by WWE. Still, I remember being struck by the extent to which McMahon seemed totally indifferent to Drozdov's health and well being by encouraging him to incorporate his ability to vomit into his act.
