AEW Worlds End marked the company’s last pay-per-view in 2023, with a resolute commitment to delivering a memorable night of action. While the show might have had memorable moments, it wasn’t completely exempt from botches either. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that AEW has once again decided to remove botched videos concerning the Worlds End show.
Tony Khan’s previously boasting about not following traditional wrestler training methods garnered criticism, especially after a major rise in botches over the past year. Fans have increasingly called out the company, expressing concerns about its safety standards and characterizing it as an unsafe environment.
AEW has a history of engaging in mass takedowns, and one frequently associated with these DMCA actions is “Donald Stevens.” Known for removing content the company prefers not to be online, there is speculation that Donald Stevens is pseudonym used by Aubrey Edwards.
The AEW Botches Twitter account covered a few botches from the AEW Worlds End event, particularly those concerning Julia Hart and Adam Copeland. However, the account then revealed that those videos were swiftly taken down, insinuating that it was Aubrey Edwards, calling her ‘horsey.’
”Horsey working overtime 🤔 #Endisnear”
AEW even filled mass DMCA notices to take down botched does in the past. We will have to wait and see whether the company will ever stop trying to remove such videos, which are generally used to show how they can improve. For the time being, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
