Vince McMahon sent down word that all Superstars must cease any third party activities. This includes Twitch streaming and Cameo requests. Superstars might have to shut down their YouTube accounts as well. Fans are not happy and some Superstars are livid.
Vince McMahon’s name trended on Twitter with over over 25,000 tweets featuring his name about the subject. A majority of those tweets were not too nice. Fans had a lot of things to complain about.
WWE Superstars have used their Twitch streams to raise money for charity in the past. They have also been able connect with fans in a way that WWE didn’t normally allow them to.
Another fan received over 530 replies and 580 retweets as of this writing when they tweeted out: “Vince McMahon banned his wrestlers making money off of twitch before he banned pedophiles from his locker room. NEVER forget this.”
Some fans are also drawing an obvious correlation to AJ Styles admitting to a positive coronavirus test on his Twitch stream and McMahon making this decision about pulling all Superstars from Twitch and Cameo the next day.
