WWE and Amazon’s Twitch have reached an agreement on a multiyear partnership Monday that will include a “companion sidecast” to Monday Night Raw and will see WWE superstars returning to the platform, according to an official announcement.
WWE infamously banned their superstars from streaming on Twitch back in 2020 which sparked social media debate on WWE’s ability to limit their wrestlers from streaming on Twitch and engaging in outside interests despite WWE labeling them as “independent contractors.”
Now, WWE superstars will be making their return to the video game streaming platform. WWE’s partnership with Twitch will allow its superstars to return to streaming and will feature their own “live and exclusive content.”
The brand new show, as part of their new deal, will feature a “rotating cast of hosts” and appearances by WWE superstars, is currently slated to debut Monday night (tonight) on WWE’s official Twitch channel.
Over the course of the last year WWE has been loosening their rules imposed during the initial ban, culminating with Fightful Select reporting back in April of this year that WWE struck a deal with Twitch to allow their wrestlers and personalities to return to the Amazon-owned platform “with almost no restrictions”.
