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.
I bet ECW would have changed their names in a second if they were forced to do so.
That wasn't really the point.
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?
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.
"Nobody enjoys a good time more than I do, but this business of yours is as legitimate as a three-legged donkey...which of course is illegitimate because as we all know donkeys have four legs."
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.

Not so significant for the wrestlers-on-game show angle, but something interesting did catch me eye: Flair and Booker are on it. Wonder when this was taped. The week starts Nov. 5, according to this WWE article: Click Here (wwe.com)
