Three years ago, All Elite Wrestling announced its first video game at the AEW Games 1.0 Special Event. The game is developed by Yuke’s and published by THQ Nordic.
Last year, AEW President Tony Khan told the fans that the title of the game would be AEW Fight Forever. Recently, the company was able to obtain a “T” rating (Teen) for the game. However, it didn’t release yet.
It appears that AEW has to face another problem regarding AEW Fight Forever which will delay the video game’s release date even more.
AEW trademarked the name “AEW Fight Forever” under merchandise and video game purpose on March 21st, 2022. In 2021, GCW held an event called Fight Forever, which aired for 24 hours. Therefore, GCW trademarked the name “Fight Forever” on July 21st, 2022 for Entertainment services.
GCW is now opposing the registration of AEW Fight Forever. Mike Dockins the lawyer who represents GCW has requested an extended time from US Patent & Trademark Office on March 1st to file a formal opposition. The USPTO granted an extension that lasted until May 31st. According to USPTO documents, GCW “engaged in settlement discussions.”
However, GCW owner Brett Lauderdale responded to a fan and stated that they don’t want Tony Khan’s money.
“GCW has never, and will never ask for a dollar of Tony Khan’s money.”
