Update on the new WWE/Twitch deal

According to F4WOnline, more information has been made available regarding WWE’s new deal with Twitch.

As previously reported, the agreement will allow WWE stars to resume streaming on the platform.

F4WOnline is now reporting that the portion of the revenue cut WWE will receive will come from the Twitch side. Furthermore, the report also notes that it has been confirmed through talent that WWE’s Twitch cut is from the Twitch side, not the talent side and will get a larger cut than other streamers who use the platform.

The report concluded by saying WWE executives negotiated for talent to get a larger cut than other creators on the platform, which is said to be a “very talent-friendly deal.”

This is a big change from back in the fall of 2020, when WWE banned its performers from using third-party platforms like Twitch, leading to a number of concerns from talent such as the public outcry between WWE and Zelina Vega.
