Dr Disrespect Asks for $50M Deal Following xQc's Record-Breaking Kick Contract
Dr Disrespect eyes a $50M Kick deal, following xQc's $100M contract, indicating potential shifts in the streaming industry landscape.

As the streaming platform landscape continues to evolve, one of the industry's most popular personalities, Dr Disrespect, eyes a lucrative contract following his fellow streamer's recent mammoth deal.

Recently, Felix Lengyel, better known by his online alias 'xQc,' signed a record-breaking $100 million deal with the burgeoning streaming platform Kick. This news sent shockwaves across the streaming industry, shaking up the status quo. Notably, xQc's move from Twitch to Kick symbolizes the potential and monetary allure Kick offers for high-profile streamers.

In the wake of this news, Herschel "Dr Disrespect" Beahm IV, a prominent figure in the streaming world, has expressed his desire for a piece of the action. Posting on Twitter, the Two-Time Champion claimed he would consider joining Kick if offered a $50 million contract. "I need to ask for a raise," he quipped.

Kick humorously retweeted Dr Disrespect's post, indicating their interest in the deal. The platform's response suggests that Kick might be willing to bring more high-profile streamers into their fold, investing significantly in the platform's growth.

The move by Dr Disrespect would be particularly notable, given his permanent ban from Twitch, a decision which has remained shrouded in mystery. Having found a new home on YouTube, a shift to Kick would represent another significant turn in his career.
