Vince McMahon threatens talent over Twitch, Mick Foley responds
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reports WWE is asking their talent to cease third party agreements.
Many on the main roster who Sapp got in contact with hadn’t even heard of the news and had only glanced over a letter, while others were livid about the request. One top name wasn’t upset, saying that “Cameo definitely cuts into the virtual meet and greet market.”
Another longtime star said “WWE is setting themselves up for a rough situation, as this is a foggy area with their classification as independent contractors.”
Word is Vince McMahon was upset about sensitive information leaking during streams.
Banning wrestlers from making extra money on third party deals – twitch, YouTube, cameo – strikes me as a crummy thing to do.
Just my opinion.
