from ititches.com:

New York, New York: This week, after twenty years in operation under its former name, the World Wrestling Federation changed its name to World Wrestling Entertainment in order to comply with an international court that found the World Wildlife Fund had rights to the WWF initials. As part of this change, "WWF New York," a nightclub and restaurant in Times Square, was renamed "The World."
Unfortunately, this change has roused the ire of another litigant. On Tuesday, the planet Earth filed a complaint against WWE, claiming that it owned the rights to the name, "The World." Earth claims that it has been known as the "The World" for thousands of years in multiple countries. Earth is afraid that the public may have trouble discerning the WWE establishment from the planet that has been historically called "The World."
Vince McMahon, WWE owner, has refused to respond to our calls.

Very clever.

It's like being on the school bus when nobody wants to share their seat. Poor WWF-er-WWE!

Just an update, but shouldn't Weezer be suing the WWE for trampling on their logo? Both share the two W's in one look, and Weezer has been sporting it for longer.

Though it does have the little wings on the end. And I doubt Weezer cares.

That new WWE logo is just F'n ugly. Couldn't they at least have replicated their old look better by replacing the scratchy "F" with a scratchy "E?"

It wouldn't have looked as darn naked as the stacked W's. Yikes.

Maybe Whataburger should sue the promotion formerly known as the WWF as well. Since the new logo looks similar to the stacked W's on Whataburger's logo, a handful of idiots may confuse a fast-food chain with a wrestling promotion.

Jaguar- I think Weezer "appropriated" theirs from Van Halen, so I'm not sure there's real grounds for lawsuits there. (cough.)

So I went to the PPV last night and afterwards 90% of the entire roster came out and mingled with fans, signing autographs, taking pics (got mine made with BG "Road Dogg" James and Perry Saturn), etc. Most all of the guys were real cool ...
