As reported by PWInsider, WWE has filed for some more World Championship Wrestling trademarks as speculation continues to grow over whether or not they’ll be implementing more WCW-branded pay per views moving forward.
We’ve seen in the last few months that the company have been stepping up their efforts to trademark WCW material, with the introduction of a supposedly yearly Starrcade house show being the perfect example of that.
Now, though, they really do seem to be doubling down on it all with Fall Brawl, Halloween Havoc, World Championship Wrestling, and WCW Monday Nitro all being on the list of trademark applications for WWE – as well as the New World Order logo.
As the majority of wrestling fans know, WWE went head to head with WCW back in the late 90s and early noughties for the right to be called the number one professional wrestling promotion in North America. The battle swung back and forth for many, many weeks, with Vince McMahon finally reigning supreme over Ted Turner.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as if WWE is able to move past it all, with constant references being made to their victory over WCW over the last decade and a half. We can understand why, but that doesn’t make it any more bearable to watch.
It’ll be intriguing to see whether or not these trademarks lead to anything of note taking place in WWE, or whether it’s all being done as a precaution. Either way, it’s an exciting development for old school WCW fans.
