WWE Lawsuit Reveals April 2018 - March 2019 Touring Schedule

On Monday, WWE filed a "verified complaint for injunctive relief" against potential bootleggers (identified as John and Jane Does and XYZ Corporations) in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana.

The purpose of the lawsuit is protect WWE trademarks and prevent counterfeit merchandise from being sold outside WWE events across the United States. In particular, WWE files the lawsuit in their host city (New Orleans) in an attempt to stop the "unlawful manufacture, distribution and/or sale of counterfeit merchandise bearing unauthorized copies of WWE's registered and unregistered trademarks and service marks."

Normally a legal action around obtaining an Ex Parte Motion for Temporary Restraining Order would not normally seem like exciting news. However, the interesting part comes hidden in Exhibit #3.

Just like last year, WWE has supplied a tentative list of live WWE events scheduled from April 2018 through March 2019. This year, it appears that WWE only included their U.S. events (though curiously they did leave on the September 1, 2018 show for Shanghai, China.)

It's important to note the disclaimer at the top of WWE's touring schedule exhibit: ***ALL DATES SUBJECT TO CHANGE***

While there isn't any tantalizing clues like letter grades for cities, these schedules have proven to be remarkable accurately and provided fans insight on WWE's plans far in advance of ticket on-sale announcements.
