WWE Inks New Deal With Twitch To Allow Talent Back On The Platform Twitch

A new report has revealed WWE has inked a deal with Twitch to allow talent back on the platform.

In the fall of 2020, WWE made a decree to eliminate numerous third party deals and platforms for talent on the roster. This decision led to many stars being frustrated with many viewing this as a contributing factor to their desire to perform elsewhere.

In April 2022, a talent meeting took place that was held to notify wrestlers that they’d have the opportunity to expand their third-party platforms again.

Fightful Select (subscription required) provided an update, noting that WWE and Twitch reached an agreement to allow WWE stars back on Twitch with almost no restrictions.

With the deal, the revenue will be a three-way split that Twitch and the talent take the vast majority of.

The “almost no restrictions” part of the deal was put in place for not permitting talent to stream with people from other companies unless it’s cleared first.

WWE talent was said to be very happy about the agreement with Twitch.

We will have further updates and news in regards to this deal with WWE and Twitch when they become available.
