Tony Schiavone was recently interviewed by Fightful. The topic of AEW trademarking several old WCW PPV names, including Bash at the Beach and Battlebowl, arose. Schiavone responded by stating that he was in favor of the old PPV names being used in AEW. Here’s what he had to say:
I don’t know much about trademark law. I guess they just didn’t think it was important. With the nostalgia that Cody feels for his dad and the fact that he could have a Bash at the Beach or Bunkhouse Stampede and it would mean something — I think that would help them out a great deal. I’m excited about his business plan and the Young Bucks and Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega and all the guys and Tony Khan leading the way. That’s going to be some good stuff, man. It’s a pretty good business plan. There are names that we all remember for good or for bad. I know all Bash at the Beaches weren’t great, all Bunkhouse Stampedes weren’t great, but they’re still iconic names that fans remember.
