World Wildlife Fund has had their name since 1961. The World Wrestling Federation was formed in 1980 when the McMahon's founded Titan Sports. Before that, it was the WWWF, the World Wide Wrestling Federation.































edit: My apologies, it was 1982.

World Wildlife Fund registered the initials 'WWF' long before WWE did.

Vince should have changed the Company back to what his father called it The World Wide Wrestling Federation instead of becoming the WWE. WWE knows a lot more about Copyrights and Trademark Laws around the world now than they did then. Vince learned the hard way. Better late than never. the World Wildlife Fund won in Court in the United Kingdom and that ruling applied to The United States as well.
