PWInsider is reporting that WWE and 2k filed to dismiss the case on Monday citing that Alexander did not file for trademark during the allotted time frame in regards to the lawsuit. 

According to Alexander, the artist was offered a $450 settlement in 2009 but turned that down.

There is currently an ongoing case between 2k's parent company Take Two Interactive and NBA player Lebron James' former tattoo artist.
