In conjunction with the name change, WWE announced it has changed the name of its entertainment complex in New York City’s Times Square from WWF New York to "The World", currently the name of its popular night club.
Change your bets on who will say "WWF" first accordingly.

At least it's not WWE New York. That would just be too fucking much.

With the logo and the lack of "WWE" noted (and I don't think I noticed them doing a cutaway tonight either), I have to wonder if they're prepping to sell or close the thing. They certainly seem to be disassociating themselves with it.
It's a fad building. When was the last time someone hosted a show there? It's a neat little idea, but when nothing is going on it's just a store in front with a big bar/dining area in back. Granted they are playing WWF footage all over the place, but it's really nothing special and I've never really seen it busy durning non show hours. They seem to sell a lot of T-Shirts out of there, but I doubt it's worth the rent. I can see them moving away from it in the near future.
He used the name well before coming to WWE so he should own it and should be able to use it for outside projects (which doesn't mean he can). He's also publicly stated repeatedly that he's legally changed his name to CM Punk (which doesn't mean he has)....
