Gaaa! I stopped by WrestleManiaHistory.com and my WWE depression was made even worse.

“Prior to the event [WrestleMania I], WWE had held many events...”

Damn!

WrestleMania II results: WWE Champion Hulk Hogan defeated King Kong Bundy in a steel cage match...

DAMN!

So not only are they changing the name of the fed, they're also pretending that the WWF initials ever existed in the first place?

Sure, go ahead, deny your history. You're only making it worse, says I.

The wrong team won at Survivor Series. Damn it all.

Just a little bit of WWE Trivia. The first ever item offered up on eBay with a WWE tag was an HBK shirt.

Having spent the last few weeks moaning that they don't pay enough respect to the history and tradition of wrestling, allow me to publicly throw up.

Now that is just horrible. Can't they just say prior to Wrestlemania I the World Wrestling Federation... They're KILLING me here.

One thing I really miss about ECW is they were never afraid to mention their past.

I bet ECW would have changed their names in a second if they were forced to do so.

Yeah it sucks that WWF now changes all historical facts to WWE, but what do we know about the lawsuit? Maybe they are now forced to change it all?

Nobody Important Says:

ECW acknowledged its past and the WWF treats InVasion like the Age of Apocalypse. Gotta love it. Maybe the WWA will make the A in their logo really small in the hopes of attracting PPV buys from morons.

That wasn't really the point.

Again, you missed the point. They weren't being forced to change the World Wrestling Federation name just the WWF. I think that everything pre name change shoudl remain World Wrestling Federation and everything post name change can be WWE or whatever they want to call it.

It's one thing to change the name but this re-eductaion about the history of the entire sport (yes, that's what it is) stinks. Let's check the current propoganda:

* WCW never existed (see WWF title, undisputed; T-Shirt, Angle)
* ECW was a former gimmick of a manager, never a seperate entity (see Heyman, Paul)
* The WWE was always called the WWE, the WWF was a bunch of panda huggers (see wrestlemaniahistory.com)

If they change the name, fine (I'd rather have the champion refered to as the World Wrestling champion, it sounds better) but please, please don't treat us like a bunch of idiots, especially when there is no issue about using the name "World Wrestling Federation", only the initials.

Hopefully, the short attention span that the old WWF taught me to cultivate will mean I've forgotten about all of this in an hours' time.

I dont see why they just couldn't put the word "Federation" under the WW or be WWFE for abreviation purposes. and if it really was a sticking point, just make sure to have every say "world wrestling federation" or just " the federation" or even " wrestling superstar." trying to be WWE and especially the rewriting of history is as stupid as Hogan not being able to ride the motorcycle. is the WWE jumping the shark????? for god sakes, if nothing else, be World Championship Wrestling.

Something else of note in the Vault match, that was none other than Bill Alfonso as the referee.
