Several WWE Superstars are shutting down their Twitch accounts for the time being. AJ Styles, Cesaro, Mia Yim and others have all suspended their accounts as of Thursday. Cesaro ended his final livestream by saying he didn’t know when he’ll stream again.
We reported last month here on eWn that WWE talent were notified that the company would be taking control of their Twitch accounts in four weeks. Thursday marked exactly four weeks since the announcement was made. Styles said,
“Everyone, I want to thank you all for the great memories on Mixer and Twitch. I will cherish these memories and I love everyone one [sic] of you that have made this possible and supported me. As many of you know WWE is making some changes regarding streaming. We will see what the future holds in that regard. With that being said I will be suspending Stylesclash stream. This isn’t good buy, but this is see you sometime in the future. We will leave discord open, but since it won’t be monitor5ed we will be making changes. Chris or I will let you know what that looks like once we figured it out. If you see me at arenas or wherever be sure to let me know you’re part of the phenomenal family. Again this isn’t the end it’s just a pase. Thank you again for your support.”
Aleister Black and Zelina Vega said during their Thursday livestream that it would be their last for a while and they expect to find out more during a meeting with WWE officials on Friday.
Yim also tweeted the following:
Sorry guys, no more stream for the time being. Thank you for making these past few difficult months manageable. It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later. 💙 https://t.co/9XHbOikGLL
