Major League Wrestling CEO Court Bauer recently spoke with Post Wrestling. During the interview Bauer discussed why he believe YouTube is bad for the wrestling business.
“We’ve had more constructive conversations with YouTube in the last few months. I still think they are having an internal identity crisis. At one point in the last year, we talked to them about how they operate and it’s very problematic for many wrestling companies. At one time, they had an original content division and a sports division and were about to rev up and wanted to get in the space of Hulu and Netflix. Then, overnight, everyone was gone and they shuttered a lot of those divisions and were like, ‘Yeah, we’re going to do the YouTube thing like always.’ They go back and forth on what they’re going to be. They generate a lot of money. Look at the Paul brothers.’”
