– As noted, former U.S. Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang commented on Vince McMahon’s edict on WWE Superstars discontinuing their use of third party platforms, such as Twitch and Cameo. The news on Vince’s memo was first exclusively reported here at Wrestling Inc. You can check out backstage reactions here and other reactions here. Yesterday, WWE Hall of Famer Batista retweeted Yang:
“If I’m not the Secretary of Labor I’m pretty confident I’ll have his or her number to talk about the ridiculous classification of WWE wrestlers as independent contractors while controlling their name and likeness for years, even for something as benign as Cameo,” Yang wrote.
“#NoComment, but I am retweeting! [Laughing emoji] #RealTalk,” Batista responded.
