From the Ross Report..."I spoke to Rock this week and we discussed his future schedule and he will be working WWE events around his next movie schedule. The Rock made it clear he wanted to get back in the ring as he loves the opportunity to perform before a live, WWE crowd."

Looks like you picked up on something alright, but whether it's the direction they're headed, only time will tell.





What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

We can thank the World Wildlife Fund and their retard lawsuit for this - has anyone EVER gotten the two companies mixed up?

Pinker, they HAVE to replace all "WWF" references or they'll be fined (or something to that extent).... And, man that logo is going to take a WHILE to get used to.

Yeah, I hate it too...in fact, if you go to www.wwf.com it'll forward you over to www.wwe.com It's just sickening...they've removed the F from the end of the logo & now it's just a WW logo.

Well...to me..this makes me puke..WWE sounds stupid...seriously, say it to yourself. How this is better then WCW is beyond me...

Think about it, the WWf had the right to just swap the name at Survivor Series, and didn't. THIS WAS A HUGE MISTAKE!!! We could have the WCW name, Raw could be Nitro, and we'd still have the kick ass belt.

People will eventually get use to WWE...but this is a huge blow to the Federation...er, DAMN IT!!! We can't even call it the Federation anymore can we??? Are they entertainment superstars now???

Ugh...this entire mess reeks of stupidness...

I couldnt agree more.Names like WCW.NWA.ECW even XPW sound like wrestling/sports entertainment products. WWE sounds like a playschool center. I think they could have thought of something much stronger than this..

yeah, doing a storyline that changes the company to WCW would be the way to go i think. or even go one step further and make raw "nWo RAW" and smackdown "WCW Smackdown!" (or nitro, or whatever) to really help give the impression of 2 seperate feds.

nWo Raw? WCW Smackdown? Ok, I can understand your thinking....I feel your pain, but seriously....how would the nWo take over Raw? Hall, Xpac, Big Show & an injured Nash....who the hell is gonna believe that THESE GUYS could possibly take over Raw? And who is on Smackdown who has ties to the old WCW who actually would be able to pull it off?

Like I said, I can understand your thinking...but you have to think seriously about who you're talking about here. The pieces just aren't in place to make these switches.

ok, how about this. wcw raw and nwo smackdown. i wont get into details about this bit of fantasy booking, just brief plot. breaks down like this...

on raw, something (like i said, i'm not getting into details, so for now we'll just say "something") get flair pissed off at the wwf and finally in the end comes out and says something along the lines of "i'm in charge of raw. i can do what i want with it. the WWF is a disgrace to wrestling. now WCW was a true wrestling organization, and from now on it will live again. welcome to WCW RAW"

now, the nWo bring on their "we do what we want" attitude and head over to smackdown. the realiegn themselves vince, who makes himself a full fledged member of the nWo. he finally goes back to the idea that the nWo were brought in to destroy the WWF and in the end, lead by vince, smackdown becomes an nWo organization.

there, hows that for something that makes a little more sense. though honestly, rather than any of this happening, or them becoming WWE, i woulda prefered they just go back to their original name of WWWF. i think it just woulda worked out better.

I can't believe how non-chalant they are being about this so far. Re-branding a billion dollar company is a MAJOR big deal, and they're acting like nothing has changed. maybe tonight on raw i suppose.

Perhaps they are just "testing the water" so to speak. Though I must say that WWFE is much better than WWE. That's just me talking.

I agree with masterofpigeons. WWFE sounds so much better than WWE. Saying "THE World Wrestling Entertainment" just sounds like improper grammer. Maybe they should switch the logo to something with a panda bear just to piss off the World Wildlife Fund! LOL

According to WWE.com it sounds like Linda McMahon is just covering her ass, It mentions The World Wildlife Fund and the shit that went on with them. Personally I can't undestand why a non-profit organization like the World Wildlife Fund would cry and over the fucking logo and name of WWE. But it thats the only way they know to get attention then I think their Fund's principles and values are all fucked up.

For 18 years now I been callingh WWE WWF and no one ever mistook it for the Wildlife fund.

Look in the next few months for www.wwf.com to be the offical home page of the World Wildlife Fund

I can't even say WWE.

I can't wait to see the new opening of Raw tonite....

One world leader... Attitude

Or how about for you fans from the 90s...
The World Wrestling Entertainment....for over 50 years, the revolutionary force...in sports entertainment.

Just something to ponder. Oh, and while we're at it....umm, they changed ALL the logos on ALL their pages, including ALL the PPV pages too....so apparently what we were watching back on March 23 wasn't WWF WrestleMania X8, it was WWE WrestleMania X8, same goes for Vengeance, No Mercy, Backlash, King Of The Ring, SummerSlam & all the rest. Even WrestleManiaHistory.com has the damn new logo....fortunately, they haven't yet gone & changed the logos in each of the past WrestleManias. The only thing they've done is removed the logo completely from the X8 logo on the page.

I found that going from hearing the WWWF to the WWF was wierd, and I'm back to that wierd feeling again with the switch to the WWE. I thin that the biggest losers in this whole thing will be the World Wildlife Fund. I think that what they were hoping for was for Titan to offer them a large amount of money to avoid a court case and to keep the name, but it back-fired on them. Hmmmmm, I wonder if they also got the rights to UWF when they bought WCW? Send a couple of the guys up into space for the Championship match.....
