Paige and AJ Styles' reaction to WWE taking over Superstars' Twitch accounts
With the recently talk of WWE taking over Superstars' Twitch accounts following Vince McMahon's edict, Paige was one of the Superstars who publicly spoke up about it:
Another WWE Superstar who spoke about this was AJ Styles. The former WWE Champion addressed it on one of his live streams on Twitch saying the following:
I don't know what's going to happen. I don't know what they expect from us when it comes to our channel. I don't know if it's something that they're like, 'We just want you guys under an umbrella like a WWE Twitch and have a set lineup and here is who is on when'. If that's the case - great! Then fans would know where and when to find us. I don't know if that's going to happen. I literally don't know, and unfortunately I found out the same way a lot of you did - through the internet, which is a shame.
Styles added that it was disappointing that the communication from WWE's behalf was not better. He also said that he didn't believe that anything was set in stone from WWE's behalf.
According to a report from WrestlingINC, WWE's plan was to take over the Twitch and Cameo accounts of Superstars. WWE were then going to share a percentage of the revenue with the Superstar but it would count against the downside guarantee in their contract.Published 13 Oct 2020, 17:16 IST
