Bar Wrestling was trying to promote a match that took place in their promotion involving two people who are in different companies now. WWE didn’t like that very much so they filed a takedown.

When they got an email from WWE about the Jake Atlas vs Brain Cage match that they posted, Bar Wrestling didn’t appreciate it very much. They posted screenshots of the email along with a caption to explain the situation.

WWE had a tweet pulled & our twitter was temporarily locked for posting a link to Jake Atlas vs. Brian Cage with footage we own & using a photo that we commissioned & own.

They also provided a link to where you can watch the match on YouTube. We have also provided it below.

Brian Cage tweeted out letting fans know that they should support Bar Wrestling. This isn’t the first takedown notice that WWE has sent out, and it probably won’t be the last. It is very interesting that WWE successfully filed a takedown notice for a match that they never owned the rights to because it took place in an entirely different promotion.

It’s pretty obvious at this point that these takedown notices are all automated and little to no actual human judgement is involved anymore.
