New City for SummerSlam?, Update on WWE Advertising Issues, Fandango Trademark Issues

– There is talk of Los Angeles not getting WWE SummerSlam in 2014. Madison Square Garden in New York City has been rumored as a venue. There is also talk of doing the 2015 Royal Rumble in either Los Angeles or Anaheim.

– There is indeed a trademark battle over the name Fandango. WWE tried to trademark the term for use for a pro wrestler but Comcast has trademarked it for their movie ticketing website

– WWE has updated advertising for the December 30th RAW tapings in Richmond, Virginia and the live event in Toronto that same night. John Cena, Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, Big Show and Dolph Ziggler are all now only being advertised for the Toronto event. Christian has been added to Orton vs. Cena as the special referee that night. For the RAW tapings that night, WWE is now advertising The Wyatt Family, The Shield, Mark Henry and Daniel Bryan.

    WWE viciously protects their trademarks, so they should have made sure it was legal to use the Fandango name.

    You think WWE would have made sure Fandango would have been a good name and everything passes through legal.
