WWE News: WWE applies for WCW's Clash of Champions trademark
Is it all water under the bridge finally?
WWE stays innovative and introduces new shows on the WWE Network which can be viewed by subscription. The list of new shows includes Table for 3, Legends House, Edge and Christian Show, Swerved, etc. But a few recent business steps taken by the WWE has left the fans wondering if the company is reintroducing an old pay per view belonging to their arch nemesis, the WCW Clash Of Champions.
WWE has all the rights over WCW since it bought the company after its downfall. And it is reported that the WWE has recently applied for the trademark of “Clash Of Champions” for use with a new TV show, gaming, toys and other merchandising.
This move can as well indicate that the WWE, like it was at the peak of competition in the wrestling business, wants to bring back old WCW specials to attract fans.
Back in the old days, Clash of Champions events were popular for not airing any commercials during their matches. All the 35 episodes of the event are available on demand on the WWE Network.
WWE may reintroduce this event and book main event caliber matches that may draw a large crowd, especially if it concerns the possible involvement of former WCW stars.
