How long after the WWF officially changed its name/initials to WWE that the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) sued them, claiming name infringement?

WWE changed their name in anticipation of losing the lawsuit to the World Wildlife Fund in June 2002. They were not sued because of the name change itself. They were sued because they had an agreement in place over who would use the WWF initials in different markets and with changing technologies, including web domains, those lines blurred. Between that and the changing of the WWF logo to the Attitude era "Scratch" logo, which the Wildlife Fund claimed would cause confusion in the marketplace, we were left with the blurring of content and the WWE name for years until the advent of the WWE Network led to WWE and WWF coming up with an agreeent (i.e. WWE paid a lot of money) so that the original content could be seen unencumbered.

Who do you think should be considered the scariest name in professional wrestling, as in you don't want to be on the wrong side of them in a fight?

Jerry McDevitt.

Are their plans for TNA (Impact Wrestling) to bring back the six sided ring? I always thought it was a mistake when they did that.

No plans, although I like the idea of using it for an X-Division themed show once a year.

Where was Wrestlehouse filmed?

A house in Nashville, TN.

You answering the Memphis Q&A has me nostalgic.  Is there a place I can order any DVDs?

The best place to find them is www.highspots.com, which has some Best of DVDs.
