Royalties for the WWE Network have been a topic of discussion since the launch of the streaming service.
Today, Mikey Whipwreck took to Twitter with a joke in regards to a WWE Network subscription offer in his email. This prompted the following interaction with a fan:
None of the ECW guys got royalties from the ECW stuff from what I understand. When WWE bought it out of bankruptcy they were under no legal obligation to do so. I’m not sure if the WWE contracted ECW guys did though. I never asked anyone.
