The full text of the letter Vince McMahon sent to the WWE talent on Thursday has been leaked.

First reported by Fightful, here is the full letter:

“Furthering my comments last Sunday regarding the reinvention of our product, it is imperative that we promote and protect our brand in every conceivable way. Some of you are engaged with outside 3rd parties using your name and likeness in ways that our detrimental to our company. 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. These actions are necessary in order to rebuild our brand as we enter the next phase of growth at WWE.

I thank you for your cooperation in this matter and for all of your efforts towards the rejuvenation of WWE.


It was reported on Friday that Vince McMahon issued a new edict to the WWE talent informing them that they have 30 days to suspend any activities with “outside 3rd parties.” WWE would later issue a statement defending the decision as a way to profit for the overall brand and the performers themselves in the long run.
