– World Wrestling Entertainment was victorious in court last week, successfully defending itself in a lawsuit brought against the company over the rights to the ring name of former WWE star Gangrel by CCP North America. CCP claimed it owned the rights to the Gangrel name before WWE used him on television several years ago. Judge Marvin H. Shoob dismissed the case, citing that CCP had not been actively using the Gangrel trademark and their claim was “insufficient to allege trademark rights.”
– Former WWE tag champion Trevor Murdoch, who was released by the company on Friday, is taking bookings at firstname.lastname@example.org.
