Xavier Wood reveals whether he will continue streaming following WWE’s recent edict imposing a third-party ban on its wrestlers and performers.
The WWE are currently in hot waters over their decision to ban their wrestlers from engaging in third-party platforms. Several WWE performers can be on found on platforms such as Cameo, Twitch, YouTube and more and have not taken kindly to the company dictating what they can and what they can’t do.
Xavier Woods is the most notable one of them all. He monetized his gaming stream on YouTube and Twitch long before anyone else in the company thought of doing the same. He has 2.2 million subscribers on his UpUpDownDown YouTube Channel. However, the new edict has left fans worried for the future of his channels.

“I don’t have any answers,” Woods said addressing the situation with the WWE on a newLEGACYinc Twitch stream. “I have no answers, I have no idea what is going on. I think I’m fine, I think most people are fine, but we’ll find out. I don’t know, I’m not the person to ask.
“I wish I knew more, but I don’t, unfortunately. We’re gonna stream as much as we can, for as long as we can. I’m just trying to build an audience so that when I get my G4 gig, we have a built-in crew. Keep my game name alive.”
WWE Stars such as Paige, Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks have begun using their real names on third-party platforms. This has led to many wondering if reverting to their real name can help stars bypass the order. However, there is very little clarity and a lot of furore on the situation at the moment.
Considering the classification of WWE Wrestlers as ‘Independent Contractors’ many including former Democratic Presidential candidate Andrew Yang have questioned the WWE over how much control it has exhibited over workers who aren’t legally their employees.
