WWE Files Trademark For Taboo Tuesday Pay-Per-View

With WWE bringing back old pay-per-view names, a trademark application might indicate that it will bring back another pay-per-view.

According to PWInsider, WWE filed a trademark application for "Taboo Tuesday" for use in wrestling. The filing was made on July 24 and the trademark specifies what Taboo Tuesday would be used for.

“Entertainment services, namely, a show about professional wrestling; entertainment services, namely, the production and exhibition of professional wrestling events rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment; fan club services, namely, organizing and staging events with wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the field of sports entertainment; online journals, namely, blogs in the fields of sports entertainment.”

Taboo Tuesday was a pay-per-view from 2004-06, where fans would get to decide on matches and match stipulations. The Taboo Tuesday name was only used for those two years, but it had a pay-per-view successor in Cyber Sunday, which ran in 2007 and 2008.

The last Taboo Tuesday (2006) pay-per-view was headlined by a rare Champion vs. Champion vs. Champion Triple Threat match between King Booker (World Heavyweight Champion), John Cena (WWE Champion) and Big Show (ECW Champion). While the pay-per-view has largely abandoned this format since 2008, WWE has retained the concept which has been used on WWE television times a few times.

WWE has already brought back other pay-per-views from the 2000s such as Backlash and No Mercy in the past year.
