The World Wildlife Foundation took The World Wrestling Federation to court to make them change their name.
The World Wildlife Foundation had their name first, and so the court mandated that the World Wrestling Federation change their name, in the past, present and future.
because it got to old
WWF changed to WWE on May 5,2002.
The WWE is the WWF, just with a name change (and less attitude).
Its WWE now because there was something else called WWF so they had to change it.
wwe was called wwf until someone said change it into wwe wwf started in 1950
a new wrestling company opened up and it had the same initials as the WWF therefore WWF had to change its name to WWE.
Legally they can not!
May of 2002
WWF was changed to WWE, because there was another thing with an acronym that spelled WWF that was called world wildlife foundation and it was around before world wrestling federation so that got sued and changed it to WWE.
yes, wwe is the new version of wwf
WWF (World Wrestling Federation)'s name had to be changed to WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) due to a lawsuit by the World Wildlife Fund for use of the initials WWF.
wwf changed to wwe because wwf stole the trademark of the World Wildlife Foundation(wwf) and changed the name due to issues in court
You mean after they had to change their initials from WWF to WWE? Is so the answer is a hardcore title match.
because the wwf which is now world wildlife fund did wwf too so they changed it to wwe
2001 because the wildlife thing sued the wwe for having the same name
Because Vince McMahon Sr. wanted it to WWF and then Vince McMahon didn't like it so he change it to WWE.
Well, basically yes. But, WWF changed to WWE because WWF was already taken as "World Wildlife Federation" so that's why WWF is WWE. Vince McMahons Father Or Grandfather Found WWE in 1952.
They chaned in mid 2002 after the World Wildlife Fund (which you may notice is also WWF) won a lawsuit.
stone cold in wwf and john cena in wwe
back then it was called WWF March 1979, and back back then it was called WWWF (date unknown) and before that CWC 1952. if you mean the change from WWF to WWE is was in 2002
No WWF is now WWE
WWF/WWE = Debra Marshall
wwe doesn't talk about wwf due to a lawsuit from the world wildlife fund (WWF) which doesn't allow the wwe to mention 'wwf' or display the logo, they can only say 'World Wrestling Federation'
WWE is the best.
