If you thought Dr. Disrespect would ride off quietly into the sunset on his YouTube horse after returning from his Twitch ban, and subsequently rocking the boat by even having his voice featured on streams that were on Twitch, think again. Soon, we may have to be discussing Dr. Disrespect less as a “streamer personality” and more as an “organization owner” and that’s kind of crazy. Thanks a bunch 2020. But new rumors suggest that Dr. Disrespect could be pulling the trigger on owning a Call of Duty League team.
THIS STORY & MORE ON THE BREAKDOWN
He may have been teasing it since his return from a Twitch ban, but will Dr. Disrespect finally pull the trigger and say he is looking to own a CDL team, possibly alongside Nadeshot and H3CZ? And, the most anticipated game of 2020, Cyberpunk 2077, had its massive world map leaked and boy is it a big one. Plus, Cloud9 returns to competitive Halo with the announcement of a seasoned pro team that looks to become top dog ahead of Halo: Infinite’s release.
DR. DISRESPECT OWNING A CALL OF DUTY TEAM?
The Call of Duty League (CDL) is only a year old, and it’s already had plenty of interest and involvement from huge names that want to be involved in the future. And with the chaos surrounding the purchase of OpTic Gaming by H3CZ, it seems like more chaos could be in the future. After H3CZ picked up his former org, Nadeshot teased a possible involvement and stoked the fires even more with an Instagram picture of him, H3CZ, and the Doc all standing together captioned “Mt. Rushmore.” Seems a little flimsy at best, but once you see what Dr. Disrespect said on stream less than 48 hours ago, everything seems to be leaning towards their involvement together. This comes right after a viewer asked The Two Time on stream “do you ever plan to have your own professional team?”

Really though, it’s still all conjecture. But with H3CZ being forced to either sell OpTic or give up the Huntsmen spot in the CDL, things could get pretty spicy soon. There’s no news on any rush to have changes to the CDL made, especially since we already know that the first 12 teams from the first year of competition will still be in the mix again in 2021. Are there any other huge name streamers or personalities that you would want to own or operate a professional organization, either in the CDL or another esport?
