Originally published at REPORT: WWE reaches agreement with Twitch that will allow talent to stream on platform
An agreement between WWE and Twitch.
There’s a report from Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select which reads that WWE reached an agreement with the Twitch platform. The deal will allow WWE talents to stream on the service with ‘almost no restrictions’.
One restriction that is in play is WWE talents need permission from the company to bring wrestlers from other companies on their stream.
Revenue earned through the stream(s) are going to be split three ways between WWE, the talent and Twitch. Talents and Twitch are receiving the majority of what is generated.
Several years ago, WWE put an edict in place that prevented talents from streaming and it led to Zelina Vega departing the company. She would return seven months later.
