Randy Orton, the 13 time WWE Champion recently took a dig at Vince McMahon, CEO of WWE on social media after the latest edition of Monday Night Raw.
Randy Orton takes a jab on Twitter
In a segment on the September 7 edition of Monday Night Raw, the WWE Champion, Drew Mcintyre drove an ambulance into the Amway Center.
One of the fans took to Twitter and posted a hilarious tweet in context with WWE’s Third-party ban. The tweet read, “I sure hope @DMcIntyreWWE isn’t an ambulance driver on the side. You know how I feel about Superstars doing anything outside of the @WWE” – @VinceMcMahon #WWERAW

‘The Viper ‘ Randy Orton surely does not support the edict as it could be observed from his action. He had liked the tweet which made the fans go wild.
WWE previously announced some rules related to the third-party edict. 30 days deadline was given to the talents in order to put an end to the actions on third-party platforms.
As much as fines, suspension or termination could be imposed on violation of the edict and it was clearly mentioned.
On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, the third-party edict was addressed. It was said that the wrestlers would be allowed to maintain both their Twitch and YouTube accounts.
However, real names must be used to handle the accounts, rather than their in-ring names. Despite using the real names, they should also inform WWE about their YouTube and Twitch accounts.
WWE released an official statement on Saturday regarding the third-party deals and it read:
“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.”
The wrestling world including the fans, wrestlers are not at all impressed with the edict and it has been a topic of criticism. This idea of WWE has been described as “super vague.”
