WWE recently told Superstars that they are no longer allowed to work with third party companies. This was a controversial decision that even drew the ire of former US Presidential candidate Andrew Yang. This announcement has been a popular point of discussion.
Stephanie McMahon spoke to The GaryVee Audio Experience in July, and he just re-released this interview due to WWE’s current headline making decision. She discussed WWE Superstars and the opportunities that they have. She said that today’s Superstars have more chances than ever to build their personal brands.
McMahon made a point to say that Superstars can build their brands “in and outside of the ring.” Those Superstars also realize that opportunity and are taking full advantage of that.
“I think the talent we have today has more of an opportunity than anybody ever did before because of social media. They recognize their own opportunity to promote their own brand and their own voice both in and outside of the ring. The more interaction they have with their fans, the more people will want to see you perform.”
