Soleil “Ewok” Wheeler has signed an exclusive streaming deal with Twitch, marking her return to the platform after airing on Mixer. Its Twitch stream was set to start at 8:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
“I decided to go back to Twitch because the platform has a wide network, and I had already created a community there before moving to Mixer,” Ewok told ESPN. “Alsoshte is also the best platform for me to continue building my brand. I also miss Twitch Rivals and met people who have supported me since day one.”
Ewok was among the top executives who signed exclusively with Mixer in 2019, including Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and Michael “Shroud”; Grzesiek. Since Mixer closed in June, Shroud has returned to broadcast exclusively on Twitch, while Ninja has yet to publicly announce his next move.

Ewok carefully looks at her mandate with Mixer.
“Mixer is a part of my journey, which I will always appreciate. I learned from the community there and they helped me grow as a flower,” she said.
Ewok said he will feel nostalgic to return to Twitch and hopes to return even stronger.
The 14-year-old Fortnite pro is a member of the FaZe Clan and recently signed with new talent management firm TalentX Gaming, a joint venture between ReKTGlobal, which owns Rogue and Royal Ravens of London in the Call of Duty League, and TalentX Entertainment.
