• WWE Issues Statement On Their Decision Of Not Allowing Wrestlers To Engage In Third Party Activities
WWE talents can no longer use their on-screen names for third party activities starting from October 2, as the company’s new policy doesn’t allow them to do so.
Below is the statement from WWE on this decision:
“Much like Disney and Warner Bros., WWE creates, promotes and invests in its intellectual property, i.e. the stage names of performers like The Fiend Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Big E and Braun Strowman.
It is the control and exploitation of these characters that allows WWE to drive revenue, which in turn enables the company to compensate performers at the highest levels in the sports entertainment industry.
Notwithstanding the contractual language, it is imperative for the success of our company to protect our greatest assets and establish partnerships with third parties on a companywide basis, rather than at the individual level, which as a result will provide more value for all involved.”
