WWE Not Going After Archived Video Content on YouTube

The reason that the WWE is not going after this footage is part of a strategic decision. The strategy is that if the videos remain on YouTube, there is a better chance to get people hooked on the product and that it will be more beneficial in the long-term as fans who get exposed to the product that way will spend more money.

Rey Mysterio Update

Mysterio is still under contract with the WWE. However, there is no set date for his return and there is a question if he will ever return to the company. Also, it has been reported that  Mysterio has stopped cashing his checks that the WWE has been sending him. Mysterio’s contract was renewed for another year based off of the idea that he owed them time that he missed due to injury, which is part of the standard wrestling contract that everyone signs.
