AEW Sends Twitter/X A DMCA Copyright Notice For Video Ariel Helwani Published

During this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, The Young Bucks (Matthew Jackson and Nicholas Jackson) showed backstage footage of CM Punk’s altercation with Jack Perry from AEW All In 2023. The video, which had no audio, showed Punk approaching Perry and the two speaking for a few seconds. Punk attacked Perry, and the situation quickly dissipated.

Ariel Helwani of The MMA Hour, who interviewed Punk last week, released a video combining the backstage footage with his own interview footage of Punk discussing the incident with Perry.

AEW filed a DMCA copyright notice with Twitter/X, and Helwani’s video was removed from the social media platform with the message: “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”

In the message below, Helwani mentioned that Twitter/X had temporarily locked his account:

“Not very nice. Some lawyer out of Jacksonville got my account locked momentarily and DMCA’d the video I posted, which contained CCTV and interview footage from my show (just felt like the CCTV needed some narration, you know).”
