The gaming world and the pro wrestling world merged again on a big story when Twitch was hacked. This data breach revealed the payouts for some top accounts, including many in the pro wrestling circle.
#TwitchDataLeak trended throughout social media as many fans dove into once confidential information. Coming right after Facebook’s big shutdown, this is yet another blow to a popular social media website.
The Verge reported that this data breach took place and they also included some huge payouts for top Twitch accounts like Paige, Adam Cole, Zelina Vega, and more. Those payouts seem to be yearly figures, but it is very possible that some amounts could fluctuate depending on how their channels perform at any given time.
Paige (SarayaOfficial) 478,224
Zelina Vega (theatrinidad) 341,748
Adam Cole (TheCHUGS) 318,080
Impact Wrestling (impactwrestling) 69,140
Tyler Breeze (thesweetzlive) 43,755
Evil Uno (eviluno) 35,742
Colt Cabana (coltcabana) 32,479
Xavier Woods (AustinCreed) 25,431
It is very interesting that Impact Wrestling, who broadcast their AXS television show on Twitch, falls in the middle of the pack. As of this writing, nobody on this list has publicly responded to his data leak.
After seeing those numbers it’s no wonder why Zelina Vega, Paige, and Adam Cole all fought to keep their Twitch accounts active in the face of WWE’s third party ban.
We will continue monitoring this story if any new information is made available.
