AEW’s announcement about their foray into the video game industry has sent waves of excitement among their fans. The highly anticipated game features some of the biggest names from the AEW roster, such as Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley, and many others. While the game’s release date has been shrouded in mystery, recent reports suggest that the wait might be over soon. Now it seems GCW is fighting the game’s trademark in court.
With no confirmed release date in sight, AEW Fight Forever has been hit with a number of delays since its announcement in November 2020. This has made fans believe the game is truly cursed.
The game has already been officially rated as T for Teen. Due to this, fans wondered whether the game will release soon. Of course, they also wondered when the game would even release.
GCW is opposing the name of the game now. GCW filed documents requesting an extension over their opposition to the AEW Fight Forever trademark on March 1, 2023.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office granted that extension. According to documents, GCW’s opposition appeal notes the company is currently “engaged in settlement discussions with the applicant,” which refers to AEW.
GCW held a show in January 2021 titled Fight Forever, which lasted 24 hours. In 2022, GCW filed for its trademark to the name, and a few months later, AEW filed its trademark for it. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing case.
