A new report from Fightful Select reveals that an agreement has been established between Twitch and WWE that will allow WWE talent to return to the streaming platform with very few limitations. Sources indicate that the lion’s share of resulting revenue will be divided between Twitch and the wrestlers, which has been gladly received by talent. Fightful also reports that existing restrictions do still require prior clearance before WWE talent streams in partnership with individuals from other companies. This new agreement is the latest in a series of negotiations between third party platforms and WWE.

The deal comes over two years after WWE added a new policy in fall of 2020 that they would be taking over talents’ Twitch accounts and that they had to sever relationships with third-party platforms. They also took over talents’ Cameos. The situation had led to frustration among WWE stars. There was reportedly a talent meeting in April of last year in which talent was told they would be able to expand their third-party platforms again, but it took some time for the deal with Twitch to be finalized.
