I remember when the wwe was the wwf and the logo was a w with an f but now when you look back at old footage they block out the wwf logo and call it the wwe. Why did they do this? Aren't they both the same and werent they all run by Vince McMahon

A issue with world wildlife fund back in 2002 I think made them change the name. They own rights to the WWF thing

Because when world wildlife fund sued them. It was in their agreement that they can use the old wwf logo.

WWE















aka World Wrestling Entertainment















formerly WWF The World Wrestling Federation















previously known as WWWFWorld Wide Wrestling Federation















before that Capitol Wrestling















-- Owned By the McMahons































When Vince K. McMahon assumed control from Vincent J McMahon he shortened it from WWWF to WWF.. doing this infringed on the World Wildlife Fund (also WWF)'s Copyright on the Initials WWF































Vince agreed to a deal in which he was allowed 'limited Use" however in the early 90's with the creation Of Raw he broke the 'limits" the other WWF sued him and in 2002 he officially Lost all use of the initialism WWF... he could still calli it World Wrestling Federation, but any reference to WWF as WWF would violate the settlement































so they rebranded as WWE World Wrestling Entertainment ... this is what caused the "Get the F out" campaign































and just recently they went a step further and are now simply WWE

WWE used the WWF initials from 1980s to May 2002. During the final days of Attitude Era they began a campaign about "Get the F out" which led to a court case between World Wrestling Federation Entertainment Inc. and World Wide Fund (both of them were sharing the same initials at that time) and the court favoured World Wide Fund to use the WWF initials and told the wrestling promotion to either change it's name or it's initials. Due to the F being violated, since then the old WWF logos have been either pixelated or replaced by WWE logo to not get sued.

It was an issue with the World Wildlife Fund but now they have settled and you will start to see the old scratch WWF logo again.
