Has anyone heard the rumor that starting in April the WWF will change it's logo to "WWFE"? Also in the works could be new sets for "RAW" and "Smackdown". Anybody else read these rumors?

yeah, word of the new logo is all over the place.

haven't heard about a new raw or smackdown set. i could see them tweaking the raw set, but they spent a bunch of money on a new smackdown set not too long ago. that fist doesn't look cheap.

You know, it's going to be a bit cumbersome to say "WWF-E" everytime we refer to the company. Don't you think the WWFE will just be the overall "coporate umbrella" as Linda called it, and the two shows and their rosters will have individual names? Probably not "The Smackdown Team and The Raw Team" either. This is going to be weird.

No, but that fist sure does look dumb.

Yeah, I've heard all about the logos and sets. Personally, I like the sets now, but since business has (apartently) been waning recently, why not try to spice things up in every way possible? New rosters, new sets, new logos, and (hopefully) new annoucers. Should be a fun ride for a while.

Assuming, of course, that the WWF doesn't screw this up as well...

you got a point there about spicing things up.

on a somewhat related note, i wish they would have changed their company name to "Titan Entertainment, Inc." instead of WWFE. it might have stopped the lawsuit from coming down in the first place. maybe.

Well seeing that they no longer have a working relationship with Titan, that would've proved difficult.

Well who was Titan then? Why is the WWF HQ called Titan Towers? Where does the Titan name come from? Somebody fill me in....

I thought it was just the name that the WWF was under. I didn't think there was an actual Titan corporation they worked under.

What is now known as World Wrestling Federation Entertainment Incorporated was known as Titan Sports Incorporated. They are the same company, except Vince changed the name when they went public (it seems much easier to identify a company to a product if they share similar names don't you think?). Titan Sports was Vince's company when he bought the WWWF from Vince Sr.

In terms of whether or not they would call it "WWFE" on the broadcasts....it sure seems like JR said "World Wrestling Federation" a lot more than he usually says "WWF" last night. So maybe they would just start saying the full name. And maybe the new logo would be something along those lines as well.

Also, I seriously doubt the Smackdown set would be changed much, because of the recent change. However, I think the Raw set could use a new look. It REALLY needs new graphics, chryon, whatever. It looks very dated to me. Just don't lose the Titantron.

If I understand how the ruling went, they can say World Wrestling Federation, but not WWF. But I am also betting that they can legally get around it with WWF: Raw and WWF: Smackdown (and eventually the WWF part).

And get rid of the Titantron too~! That thing cuases more people to turn away from the ring and lose heat on the match. From a TV viewer standpoint, if a lot of the people they see are staring away from the ring (for whatever reason) it gives the look of them not caring.

You say that, but at the live shows I've been I've nearly always had distant seats, and not once did I look at the Tron. Just mentioning it-it seems the things that most makes fans turn away are DAMN RUN-INS!

shame the fed are changing their logo. I really liked the metallic logo!!!!!!!!!!....

If they are serious about changing the name to WWFE, they should just totally change the name.

I mean, what's the point of having "Wrestling" in the name if there's not much to begin with. Maybe rename it WSEF: World Sports Entertainment Federation. (sounds dumb, but it is really sports entertainment now days)

Wait, I think Vince will kill me for this idea.
