Wwe Agreement

The deal means Saudi wrestling fans will enjoy a series of WWE events, including their famous “Royal Rumble” and “Raw title” events. In 2000, the World Wide Fund for Nature sued World Wrestling Federation Entertainment Inc. in the United Kingdom for various violations of the 1994 agreement. [147] The Court of Appeal accepted that the promotion company had violated the 1994 agreement, particularly with respect to merchandising. On May 5, 2002, the company launched its “Get The F Out” marketing campaign and changed all references on its site from “WWF” to “WWE,” while the URL went from WWF.com to WWE.com. [49] The next day, a press release announced the official name change of World Wrestling Federation Entertainment, Inc. to World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. or WWE, and the change was released later that day during a Raw television show broadcast by the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, Connecticut. After the name change, the use of wwf`s “Scratch” logo was banned on all WWE features.

In addition, prior references to the WWF brand and initials were censored in “certain circumstances.” [148] Despite the litigation, WWE was allowed to continue to use the original WWF logo, used from 1979 to 1994 and explicitly exempted under the 1994 agreement, as well as the similar “New WWF Generation” logo used from 1994 to 1998. In addition, the company continued to use the full names “World Wrestling Federation” and “World Wrestling Federation Entertainment” inconsequentially. In 2003, WWE obtained a limited decision to continue marketing some of THQ and Jakks Pacific`s classic video games containing wwf`s “Scratch” logo. [149] However, on the packaging of these games, all WWF references have been replaced by WWE.
