Two Female WWE Stars Launching New Podcast

In the past WWE has clamped down on Superstars earning income from streaming on other platforms, but now one previously released Superstar is ready to launch their own podcast two years after rejoining the company.

In 2020 WWE added a mandate that allowed them to take control of any third-party account Superstars were using to generate additional revenue. This included sites such as Twitch, Cameo, and Only Fans, all of which have allowed fans to pay for engagement and content.

Earlier this year WWE signed a partnership with Twitch, a platform that allows influencers to stream as they play games and generate revenue based on interaction.

Following the partnership, it appears WWE wants to see its talent use platforms to further enhance their name and bring in new audiences for the company.

Zelina Vega was released in 2020 after refusing to allow WWE to take ownership of her Twitch profile. Now Vega, who rejoined WWE in 2021, has partnered up with another fellow former Women’s Tag Team Champion Dakota Kai to create a gaming based podcast.

Dakota Kai returned to WWE screens following the successful cash in by Iyo Sky at SummerSlam, but is not set to compete any time soon as she recovers from a torn ACL injury.

The Damage Ctrl member took to Instagram to share the news about the upcoming podcast launch called ZELVX and CHARLIE GIRL

Time To Stop The Game As A Former Champion In WWE Surprises Las Vegas Crowd

Dakota Kai and Zelina Vega are not the first WWE Superstars to delve into their love of gaming to connect with fans outside of arenas.

Saraya (known as Paige in her WWE days) used Twitch to stream her gaming sessions and interact with her legion of fans. The AEW Star built up a large following after using the platform after being forced to retire from in-ring action.

But the most successful of WWE based gamers is none other than 11-Time Tag Team Champion Xavier Woods who has established his own following away from WWE with UpUpDownDown, a YouTube based show focused on his love of computer games.

Recently Woods surprised computer game fans and industry heads by attending the GameStop Managers Conference. WWE showed footage of the Las Vegas crowd’s reaction at the arrival of Woods, who spent time on stage discussing the gaming industry.
