Dave Meltzer has confirmed Top Rope Press’ report that WWE is now prohibiting wrestlers from doing interviews on non-approved podcasts. The is stems from the comments made by Ric Flair on his podcast after the controversial Charlotte/Paige angle.
We reached out to a source familiar with the situation and this has been confirmed to us.
WWE already has a policy to not allow wrestlers on certain podcasts which is why you won’t see contracted WWE talent appearing on Jim Ross’ podcast.
WWE-approved podcasts and TV programs that WWE is friendly with (ESPN SportsCenter, Sam Roberts podcast) are believed to be on the safe list for WWE talent since WWE has a relationship with them.
