WWE Locks Down Another WCW Pay-Per-View Name For Future Use

6 Comments

WWE likes to own as many pieces of intellectual property as possible. They are holding a Great American Bash event this week because they can. Now fans can expect a return of Wrestle War.

PW Insider has reported that WWE locked down a copyright for WrestleWar. This copyright specifically notes that it can be used as “a show about professional wrestling.”

“WrestleWar” for G & S: Entertainment services, namely, a show about professional wrestling; entertainment services, namely, the production and exhibition of professional wrestling events rendered live and through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing wrestling news and information through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information.

WWE is cashing in on nostalgia in a big way. They recently filed a copyright for WCW with specific language indicating that they plan on merchandising the defunct pro wrestling company’s name.

WCW ran their WrestleWar events from 1989 to 1992. The events also featured WarGames matches in the past. It’s unclear what WWE wants to do with the WrestleWar name, but the idea isn’t dead by a long shot.
