WCPW

WCPW (What Culture Pro Wrestling) has uploaded a video of Adam Blampied explaining the promotions current issues with advertising and YouTube in recent weeks.

Blampied explains in the video that YouTube has drastically reduced monetization options for videos they deem “hate speech” and that, for whatever reason, professional wrestling is now considered to be “inappropriate content” going forward on the platform.

The Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online reports that YouTube issued a strike against WCPW’s channel for the show “Fight Back” claiming it violated the policy regarding spam and deceptive practices. The show was then taken down and WCPW revealed that the channels ability to stream live has now been revoked.

As noted in the video clip below, WCPW is encouraging people to sign an online petition to get pro wrestling removed from the “offensive content” list. The new rules are now preventing the promotion from releasing content on YouTube as it was one of the big ways for them to generate a revenue outside of ticket sales.

  1. I don’t think it has anything to do with the “product” WWE produces. WWE does have a partnership agreement with YouTube. this puts WWE in a better position to sidestep certain regulations without hurting their advertising revenue.

  2. youtube is becoming more and more censored and strict than ever before. it’s becoming harder to post content and harder to make money from. just recently they cut the amount of money you can make from views on your video’s and now you need to have at least 10,000 views to even get in the partnership program to make money on your video’s. youtube is becoming a joke…

  3. While in the meantime, any wrestling company that’s not WWE gets hosed (as usual) and Vince (also as usual) gets his way. Like so many other wrestling fans, I’ll be so glad when Vince is no longer in the business in any capacity.

  4. unfortunately, WWE is so deeply entrenched, it would take something drastic before WWE goes out of business.
