So, why is Bruce Prichard allowed to host a live video stream that he profits off of, but the rest of the talent and employees in WWE must abide by the new controversial, strict edict / policy regarding third-party platforms such as Twitch, Cameo and other digital streaming services?
There are a lot of wrestling fans who are questioning WWE’s stance on its talent, who are independent contractors and not even technically employees, not being able to work with third party platforms like Twitch but at the same time, letting a high-ranking official like Bruce Prichard continue with his podcast.
According to a report by Dave Meltzer in this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter at F4WOnline.com, when Prichard signed with WWE, he told the company that he wanted to still do his podcast and Vince agreed as long as he didn’t talk about WWE on his program.
Essentially, Prichard managed to get permission from the company in writing as part of his contract to return to WWE, which effectively makes him exempt from the edict that was recently implemented and strictly enforced.
We will keep you posted here at eWrestling.com as updates continue to surface regarding the new WWE third-party platform policy / edict, which includes the WWE ban of Twitch, Cameo and other outlets for their talents.
