Ryan Clark

Some new developments regarding World Wrestling Entertainment’s current trademark infringement lawsuit against Dale Gagner’s AWA Superstars promotion. According to reports, WWE disclosed to the court that not only are they seeking damages for the promotions quote “unauthorized use of WWE’s intellectual properties” in an amount to be determined, but also all court and attorney’s fees. WWE also disclosed that Verne Gagne, Greg Gagne and WWE’s Senior Vice President and Assistant General Counsel James Langham (who was said to be heavily involved in the WWE’s purchase of Verne Gagne’s AWA library and assets) may all be called to testify in regards to their knowledge of the AWA letters, trademark and copyright ownership. We will continue to follow this story as it develops.

Paul Hurrell sent this in: Hey, just wanted to send in word that Mr. Kennedy has an interview up with SkySports at www.SkySports.com/video, you have to cycle through other videos but it’s a pretty interesting interview. He speaks about Summerslam, what he likes to do in his spare time, working with guys like the Undertaker, what he thinks about David Beckham and Soccer, the Chris Benoit tragedy and the media, as well as other things.

jTj sent this in: This morning (24 August), King Booker was doing an interview on the Johnny Dare Morning Show out of Kansas City, Missouri. Not much to note from the interview. There was a lot of hype about SummerSlam and a little bit of talk about Triple H, calling him “King” Booker, and Rey Mysterio. Dare mentioned that he wanted to talk about the Chris Benoit tragedy, and that was the end of the conversation. Whoever was controlling Booker T’s end of the phone, terminated the phone conversation by hanging up on Johnny Dare. Don’t know if it was WWE, T himself, or an assistant. I really have no idea, but thought I’d share it with you.
