Trainwreck announced major developments for Kick today, hinting at upcoming signings that could have a huge impact on the streaming industry.
The streaming star’s surprise announcement, which came via a post on X (formerly known as Twitter) on November 14, has sparked a lot of speculation about who he might be talking about.
Kick’s founding streamer promised that the platform will make new signings that he believes will “destroy the industry” and help create a “natural ecosystem of viewers.” The move aims to support hard-working small and medium-sized creators, suggesting it is part of a larger plan to help the platform and its community grow.
Adding to the excitement, Trainwreck also announced the return of the SCUFFED podcast after its recent hiatus. This popular streaming show, which he has been hosting on and off since 2019, is another big draw for Kick.
Kick has been actively signing Twitch streamers as part of its strategy to become the frontrunner in the streaming space. The biggest new addition was xQc, followed by NICKMERCS. It has also added other popular streamers such as Adin Ross, Amouranth and YouRAGE to its inventory.
Kick has since established itself as a strong competitor to Twitch and YouTube. Signing big stars, even if they don’t just stream on Kick, is a big deal for the platform. If what Trainwreck says is true and a few more are signed in the coming months, Kick could become number one for both big and smaller streamers.
People are wondering who Kick might sign next. Some think it could be Dr. Be Disrespect, the uncrowned king of YouTube. However, signing could cost a lot of money.
Also, Twitch changed some rules so the Doc can now go back there if he wants after they banned him for reasons we don’t know. It will be interesting to see if he stays on YouTube, moves to Twitch, or moves to Kick.
All eyes will be on Train and Kick to see how their next moves will change the industry.
