“Some of you are engaged with outside third parties using your name and likeness in ways that are detrimental to our company,” McMahon wrote. “It is imperative that these activities be terminated within the next 30 days (by Friday, October 2). Continued violations will result in fines, suspension, or termination at WWE’s discretion.”

WWE expects its Superstars to cut off ties with apps like Twitch and Cameo within 30 days. WWE cites “leaking of sensitive information” and “the next phase of growth at WWE” as the primary reasons for this decision. Despite being “independent contractors,” WWE owns the rights to the ring names and also the real names of Superstars.

Renee Young gives a fitting reply

WWE alumni Renee Young had a fitting (read mocking) reply to Vince’s statement. Young took to Twitter to announce that she is now considering signing up for third-party apps as she is no longer with WWE. Renee Young left the company last month after WWE SummerSlam.

Renee is not the only one. Many former and present Superstars expressed their disdain. Check that story here.

The WWE Universe is not happy with this decision. This will cut down on many wrestlers’ income. It will also derive the fans from getting an insight into their favorite Superstars’ lives.

The mid-carders will be the most affected. Superstars like Big E, Xavier Woods, Lana, and Paige have a massive following on the apps mentioned.

Hopefully, WWE will see the backlash and make some changes in their order. This situation could also be the result of a lack of communication.
