It seems that time is up for WWE talents and streaming. Several WWE wrestlers, including AJ Styles, Cesaro, and Mia Yim, have informed their communities that they won't be able to stream on Twitch for the foreseeable future. Paige, who has been vocal throughout the process of WWE cracking down on third-party services, commented again throughout tonight's stream. Like AJ, she said this wasn't the end for Twitch forever, but she also made it abundantly clear that she didn't agree with her employers in this regard. I was worked so hard in WWE that I can't wrestle anymore because my neck is fucked.
I couldn't wrestle anymore, something I lived and breathed since I was a fetus, and it got ripped away from me. I get used for media stuff, sometimes, but at the end of the day, I'm in my house going fucking crazy and I need something to keep me sane.

Vince McMahon sent an email to talent in October that stipulated that WWE would be taking control of accounts at the end of the month. WWE handed down orders what they are taking over Superstar Twitch and Cameo accounts. The company gets all revenue from Twitch and Cameo accounts run by Superstars. We previously reported that AJ Styles and Mia Yim made public announcements about leaving Twitch. Cesaro, Aleister Black and Zelina Vega are also suspending their Twitch channels for now. WWE isn't getting the best look either, because those Superstars had a lot of fans who loved hanging out with them that didn't even necessarily watch WWE. For the time being, WWE is not relenting in regards to their third party policy. AJ Styles took to his Twitch channel today with a message, announcing that WWE has suspended both his Twitch and Mixer accounts. Styles wrote, "I want to thank you all for the great memories on Mixer and Twitch. As many of you know WWE is making some changes that involve streaming. We will see what the future holds in that regard.ith that being said I will be suspending Stylesclash (his channel's name) stream. Styles directly mentioned WWE's new policy about Superstars needing to turn over control of their third-party platforms (namely Twitch and Cameo) to the WWE. "I don't know what's going to happen," Styles said at the time. I don't know if it's something that they're like, 'We just want you guys under an umbrella like a WWE Twitch and have a set lineup and here is who is on when'. For guys who are on here trying to, not only work for WWE, but get on here and Twitch and stuff like that, you'd think it'd be a lot easier to communicate with us and us alone instead of whoever it is behind the scenes and them going to Joe Blow and them having more information than us. I think it's going to come down to communication."
