Even though it was believed that WWE YouTube content would be removed at the launch of the WWE Network, there is a reason the videos are still posted.

WWE Vice President of Digital & Print Rob Bernstein told the Digital Sports Fan Engagement Conference earlier this year that the company will not block YouTube content they own because they believe it’s better to get fans hooked on the product, even if it’s on YouTube.

WWE believes it’s more beneficial and fans who get exposed to the product that way will spend more money. There are some videos WWE will go after, especially if it’s something they don’t want up.
