WWE’s quest to lock down every name they can continues. Now they are that much closer to locking down four names, but they still need to do some work on a few more.
PW Insider reports that WWE will publish Cyberslam and Hardcore Heaven for opposition on March 17th. Barely Legal and Massacre on 34th Street will be published for opposition on March 24th.
There were a few event names that didn’t work out for WWE. The following were given an initial refusal. They may require an identification of services amendment: “Beach Blast, Mayhem, Uncensored, Greed, Road Wild, Capital Combat, Hog Wild, New Blood Rising, Souled Out, Sin, CHI-Town Rumble, World War 3, Anarchy Rulz, Heat Wave, Living Dangerously.”
It’s unclear why WWE wants all of this intellectual property. They don’t necessarily have to use anything to retain ownership, but it would certainly provide them the chance for plenty of nostalgia dollars.
