WWE recently banned Superstars from accepting third-party deals and faced huge criticism from mainstream media.
Superstars are quite upset and want compensation for losing out on the income generated from Twitch, Cameo, and OnlyFans.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Superstars will have to seek WWE’s permission prior to taking part in third-party business.
Talents can use their real names for third party deals but there are several factors that may prevent them from doing so.
In fact, WWE will handle the entire matter on a case-by-case basis which means some Superstars might just get lucky if Vince McMahon favors them.
“Regarding if talent was to get an endorsement deal or have a way to earn money on platforms like Cameo or Only Fans, are they allowed to do it using their real name, the reaction was that there are a variety of factors in play including agreements in place and how activations are branded and/or promoted on multiple platforms. The matter will be determined through the specifics and communication. In other words, it seems like things are on a case-by-case basis.”
Superstars have until October 2nd to abide by this new edict and whoever has a store on Pro Wrestling Tees must shut it down at the earliest.
