- For the past ten years, video content from WWE’s “Attitude Era” (1998–2002) has been edited due to a lawsuit with the World Wildlife Fund over the WWF initials. All WWF “scratch” logos and references to the initials had to be blurred or edited out. This directive has now changed, at least in part.

In regards to the former “scratch” logo appearing unaltered in video packages in recent weeks, use of the symbol in flashback sequences is permitted after the organization’s legal proceedings with the World Wildlife Fund were settled in the last quarter. However, it is unclear whether the permission extends to complete matches and other archival footage.

Meanwhile, WWE.com published a photo gallery Tuesday chronicling the long line of Presidents, Commissioners and General Managers that have ruled over sports-entertainment and a shot of Mick Foley donning a T-shirt with the WWF “scratch” logo on display is shown.

- Former WWE Women’s Champion Sable, wife of WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar, turns 45-years-old on Wednesday. Though her age has come into question over the years, Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer noted in her $110 million lawsuit against WWE in 1999 (citing allegations of sexual harassment and unsafe working conditions) that she listed herself as being born on August 8, 1967. Therefore, she was 28-years-old when she joined the sports-entertainment organization in 1996 and 35 when she returned in 2003.

Fans have speculated that with Lesnar’s renewed partnership with WWE, the legendary Diva could return to television as well. That, however, is believed to be highly unlikely. According to people close to the couple, she has absolutely no desire to return to the spotlight and is very content on being a homebody.

    the WWE were the ones lying about her age i bet. her actual age would put off viewers who like vuluptious women. yeah right.

    It doesn’t matter how old she is, I’d tap that till the well runs dry, I guess my childhood obsession never really went away, along with Sunny, Trish, Lita, Stacy Keibler, I guess I’ll never get past it, oh well

    sable looked to be in her 40′s in 03. not saying she looked bad but it’s pretty clear she was lying about her age.

    It’s about damn time they stopped blurring that logo. They’ve well established the new name & logo. Maybe now we can actually stop hearing JR refer to it as the “WW… Championship” in classic clips.

    As opposed to an ugly MILF?
