WWE to take legal action against AEW
WWE are reportedly set to take legal action against All Elite Wrestling for using 'Bash at the Beach' as their pay-per-view name. This was a WCW PPV from 1994 to 2000 before the company was acquired by WWE.
"Some within WWE weren't happy with AEW promoting a Bash at the Beach, and there's talk that they may attempt to take action to stop it," said Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.
It also comes just days after Cody Rhodes tweeted that he could be going to court and needed to buy some suits.
Tony Khan in an interview with WrestlingInc said: “Cody (Rhodes) went on a trademark binge one night and he texted me, 'Conrad and I were up all night trademarking stuff.' One of the things that came out of it was Bash at the Beach. So, when he said that we thought of a way to use it… and the unique idea was to go to Miami in January.”Published 27 Nov 2019, 03:18 IST
