It was recently revealed that WWE would be ‘allowing’ their talent to once again stream on Twitch, and more info on that deal has surfaced.

Andrew Zarian, who has broken a ton of stories over the past year or so, revealed that the deal between the company and the streaming platform is great for talent.

“Spoke to a source regarding the Twitch deal with WWE. According to them WWE execs negotiated for talent to get a larger cut than other creators on the platform. This was described to me as a ‘very talent-friendly deal’. #wwe #twitch” he reported.

It is not currently known exactly how much Superstars could stand to make from this deal, but it is likely that we’ll see even more names flocking to the platform now.

Twitch is not quite the streaming leviathan it was previously, with YouTube and others taking a big dent out of their business, but it is still considered one of the premiere streaming platforms on the internet, so this is potentially a really big deal for WWE.
