Following the reports of Vince McMahon asking WWE Superstars to scale back on their involvement with third-party platforms such as Cameo, Tik Tok, and Twitch, many from all corners of the wrestling globe including WWE Hall of Famers, announcers, and recently released Superstars have taken to social media to react to the news.
You can see some of the many reactions below.
So, much in wrestling is in the shadows. Fear and abuse of power is their main control mechanism. If WWE fires a woman 2 months postpartum, who wouldn’t they fire? https://t.co/vvbk3eScpp— MariaKanellisBennett (@MariaLKanellis) September 5, 2020
3rd parties --— #nZo (FKA Enzo Amore) (@real1) September 5, 2020
Alright guys. Girls. Are they gonna fire— player/coach (@CMPunk) September 5, 2020
Everyone? Just keep doing you. Don’t
Banning wrestlers from making extra money on third party deals - twitch, YouTube, cameo - strikes me as a crummy thing to do.— Mick Foley (@RealMickFoley) September 5, 2020
Just my opinion.

Sooooooo guess now would be a good time to launch my Twitch and Cameo??— Renee Paquette (@ReneePaquette) September 4, 2020
It’s treating me great, INTERNET NOBODY. I’m living my best life & having a blast. Plus, I can still do my 3rd party stuff, I’m making bank. I am Matt Hardy. I’d ask who you are troll, but nobody cares.https://t.co/SaEQ63oQIW Get a @BookCameo from me & I’ll roast you there too. https://t.co/Fw81znhKna— MATTHEW HARDY (@MATTHARDYBRAND) September 5, 2020
WWE social media folks aren’t allowed to mention talent like @ToBeMiro, because they now only exist in the entire professional wrestling universe, as opposed to solely @WWE. It’s just their policy. I love how @AEWrestling acknowledges all of pro wrestling, competition or not.. https://t.co/D0GzTIFiBI— MATTHEW HARDY (@MATTHARDYBRAND) September 4, 2020
