Following reports that WWE has sent a memo to all talents demanding that they end their relationships with any third-party platforms such as Twitch, YouTube, several notable names from the industry have sounded off with their unfiltered reactions to the news via social media.
As noted, a memo was sent out to WWE talent by Vince McMahon recently informing them that they have 30 days to end their relationships with all third-parties that involve them using their "name and likeness in ways that are detrimental to the company," or they will be fined and possibly released.
The reports have resulted in a lot of reaction within the industry, both privately behind-the-scenes in private and publicly on social media.
Among the most outspoken on Twitter in regards to these reports are CM Punk, Renee Young and Mick Foley.
