Wrestling with WWF

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, June 2002:

LONDON–Outweighed by the World Wildlife Fund in two British
trademark court decisions, the World Wrestling Federation on May 7
reintroduced itself as World Wrestling Entertainment, leaving the
other WWF to wrestle with itself, after WWF-Japan representative
Shigeki Komori reportedly told news media on the eve of the
International Whaling Commission meeting (see page one) that if
various conditions were met, “we can no longer deny the logic that
regulated commercial whaling can resume.”
“WWF does not support commercial whaling in any
circumstances. We will sort out our office in Japan if they are
saying anything different,” said WWF endangered species program
director Susan Lieberman.
