WWE removing old, edgier videos from video sharing websites

A team of WWE employees are busy looking at video sharing websites and flagging all videos from the Attitude Era that are being used in attacks mostly against Linda McMahon.

Tons of videos were removed from the popular YouTube website already with a WWE rep saying that they are damaging “the corporate reputation” of the company. These same videos are the ones which catapulted WWE into ratings success in the late 90s and obviously were deemed appropriate at the time.

“For years WWE has produced programming that is rated PG in prime time, and most recently rated G on Saturday mornings. To better reflect our current family-friendly brand of entertainment, WWE is removing some dated and edgier footage from digital platforms,” WWE said in a statement.

“Some of this footage has been misused in political environments without any context of explanation as to when it was produced,” the statement added, referring to the adverts that opponents of Linda McMahon were producing using WWE footage.

“WWE is well within its rights to protect its intellectual property for fair use.”
