I don’t agree with Vince’s decision at all. But if I did that video about my Employer [client who engaged my independently contracted service] in that way, I’d be getting a P45 tomorrow

My sources tell me that Vince is getting more in tune with social media and how it modernises integration with fans. As a result, all talent have to have Vince in their top 8 on MySpace. 

To be fair, I'm 35 and I'll text someone back rather than answer the phone as I chucking hate speaking on phones. 

someone should just fucking brain him with a folding chair while he's in gorilla, just full on steroid era Barry Bonds home run right to the old cunts head then pull his kecks off while he's crying on

So now Trump is on the way out, does that means there is more of a chance of sorting this independent contractor bullshit out?

 

Nah. No President is ever going to sort it out. America just isn't built that way.

The only way it'll get fixed is if a wrestler manages to get to court and win. That would take a wrestler with a shit load of money to burn, who has only recently left the company and who is willing to sacrifice their future wrestling career to help everybody else. It'll never happen.

Daffney's lawsuit against TNA is probably the closest it was ever going to get.

Looks like there’s already talk https://esportsobserver.com/andrew-yang-nlrb-wwe/

While i don't disagree with you at all. Really at this point what does she have to loose?
She can't wrestle anymore......she gets called up to do a few media appearances here and there.....It's wrestlers like Paige that this bullshit really will effect

At least for active talent they have a means of making money, for non-active talent I'm not sure what the arrangement is but you'd imagine there's a pretty substantial short fall.

That said, there's always the Pontins money to fall back on.

Probably that $250,000 a year the WWE pay her.

What sort of money can be made on this twitch stuff? is it similar to the likes of Danielle Lloyd making 100k+ a month on that only fans thing?

I've seen somewhere else breaking it down and this sounds plausible, as the majority pay $4,99 a month. This link (admittedly 411mania, but still - https://411mania.com/wrestling/paige-not-getting-rid-twitch-estimate-income-platform/) puts it as expecting that she'll earn around $600,000 per year from Twitch, although acknowledges that it'll fluctuate and that's on the high end.

I really don’t understand such things and so thought Twitch was for streaming games? I also thought it was free.

So does Paige basically charge people to watch her play video games? There’s a market for that? Genuinely interested as that’s all new to me.

The basic thing is free, but I imagine it’s similar to things like Patreon whereby you also have tiers that people can subscribe to and get additional/exclusive content. You have to work dam hard at it to make any sort of money out of it, but yeah there is a market for it.

It’s a similar situation to the whole Metallica/Napster thing. I can understand Vince/WWE putting the skids on people using their WWE names/likenesses etc on other platforms for financial gain and for which WWE are not getting anything out of it, but the way that they’ve gone about it seems to have been completely misguided and kneejerk.

The market for that is huge buddy. KSI initially came to prominence playing FIFA while people watched, though I'm not sure that was on Twitch, or if you look at someone like Ninja who has 16 million youtube followers and over half a billion views. I'm sure there are plenty of others but they are the first 2 that spring to mind.
