As we reported earlier today here on eWn, Vince McMahon did not attend last Friday’s SmackDown TV tapings. This was the first event he’s missed since WWE began using the ThunderDome concept. Bruce Prichard oversaw the SmackDown TV tapings. McMahon was at RAW last night and was back in charge of running the show.
According to a report from Pwinsider, several WWE talents met with Vince McMahon in Stamford, CT on October 19th to discuss the new edict against the use of third-party platforms. The meeting took place prior to multiple talents shutting down their Twitch accounts so it appears it didn’t go well. As previously reported here on eWn, AJ Styles, Mia Yim, and Cesaro all shut down their Twitch accounts. Styles and Xavier Woods were in attendance at the meeting with McMahon.
It should be noted that several talents, including Adam Cole, Aleister Black and Zelina Vega, continue to stream.
