Why is The Rock concert edited?

I’ve been working through 2003 Raw and Smackdown and I just got to the Rock Concert from March 24th 2003. I remembered it being pretty enjoyable but the episode featured on the network has been edited out so that all of the songs that Rock performs are removed. As such, he just seems to inexplicable sit in the ring with a guitar talking shit, and then gets attacked by Austin. The whole segment has been edited to the point that it sucks - why remove all of the songs? Who’s bright idea was that!? Bizarrely, the same segment is available in its original, unedited format on WWE.com. I can’t fathom why they would edit out the best part of the whole segment. Any ideas?

Must be a copyright thing? I'm pretty sure they did the same thing with the 2012 version before WM 28.

Copyright. I remember 4 years ago New Day did their own version of Jay-Z's Empire State of Mind at Summerslam, which was actually pretty funny, that shit was edited out the next day

Re: Why is the Rock concert edited?

Just watch the segment on YouTube. It might not be in the best quality, but it's not edited WWE Network crap. I watch all old segments on either YouTube or Dailymotion. I'll never get the WWE Network. Hollywood Rock is GOAT and all of the main clips are on YouTube.

Here is the video you're referring to:

I'm also working through 2003 Raw/SD I'm up to the beginning of August, But I noticed this problem too it's weird because the copyright makes bugger all sense to me, Making fun of Sacramento was edited out for no reason.

Thanks. It’s a great segment. I love Hollywood Rock. His brief run from February - April 2003 was one of the main reasons I chose to revisit 2003.

2003 Raw/SD has been just as good as I remembered it. You know, I totally forgot about some really funny and enjoyable little storylines: the Brian Kendrick storyline where he was trying to get a WWE contract; John Cena’s vendetta against Brock Lesnar for busting his knee; Goldust getting electrocuted and developing a speech impediment; Matt Hardy trying to lose weight to be eligible for a Cruiserweight Title match ... it’s been a real trip down memory lane revisiting WWE from 2003. Shame about the editing, though.

Re: Why is the Rock concert edited?

Not only that. The Rock had a lot of these great mini skits and songs in 2003, mostly backstage stuff. And they cut them all.

Singing a song yourself is copyright too? This world is weird.

You need to be yourself, you can't be no-one else.

Re: Why is the Rock concert edited?

There is many examples of wwe cutting stuff out of the network or editing stuff over.

Ive watched shows with weird moments like parts are missing that wwe has just chopped out.
