On September 5 it was reported Vince McMahon sent a message to talent, asking them to stop engaging on third party platforms such as Cameo and Twitch.
WWE confirmed the report and issued a statement on the matter, saying they were looking to protect their intellectual property.
No one has found more success through Twitch and gaming outside of WWE than Xavier Woods, whose UpUpDownDown YouTube Channel has 2.2 million subscribers. Appearing on a newLEGACYinc Twitch stream, Woods addressed the situation with WWE.
"I don't have any answers," he said. "I have no answers, I have no idea what is going on. I think I'm fine, I think most people are fine, but we'll find out. I don't know, I'm not the person to ask. I wish I knew more, but I don't, unfortunately. We're gonna stream as much as we can, for as long as we can. I'm just trying to build an audience so that when I get my G4 gig, we have a built-in crew. Keep my game name alive."
Woods uses the name Austin Creed on UpUpDownDown and his Twitch channel. He has been pushing for a G4 hosting gig since it was announced the channel would be returning.
Paige, who has also found plenty of success on Twitch, recently said she is the queen of Twitch and would not be giving up her stream. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
