WWE Acquires War Games Concept & Trademark From Major League Wrestling

WWE Acquires War Games Concept & Trademark From Major League Wrestling

WWE has reached a deal for the rights to the WarGames concept from Major League Wrestling.

The story was first reported by PWInsider in which they note that the WarGames concept was used by MLW during their initial run in 2003 and the double-ring cage was bought for an event in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida that took place last September.

WWE has been using the concept for the NXT brand but never registered the rights to the concept when they purchased WCW in 2001.

MLW is not expected to use the concept going forward.
