Wouldn’t Gangrel just eat the lawyer?

Posted on February 20, 2008 by Matt-M-McElroy

WWE vs. White Wolf/CCP

If a copyright suit involving video-game zombies isn’t scary enough, now we have a trademark case involving a vampire named “Gangrel” to sink our teeth into.

This basically comes down to World Wrestling Entertainment still using elements of the “Gangrel” character after their contract with White Wolf has expired. Too bad it had end up in the courtroom. If any more information becomes available, I’ll be sure to update.

    As much as I am a fan of the WWE, it is stupid of them to continue to use that gimmick. David Heath can play has been a “vampire wrestler” in other organizations under different names. They could easily repackage him.

    White Wolf is also pretty easy to work with.

    WWE could have handled this a lot better.
