WWE Pulls Austin’s Own Merchandise
Although Steve Austin recently blew off the idea that there was heat between him and WWE, the latest is that WWE sent a cease and desist letter to ProWrestlingTees.com over some of Austin’s personal merchandise. Several products have been taken down from the site, but one shirt has been linked to a “Getty” image of Austin, that is supposed to be free of WWE’s copyright, but may have been falsely attributed by the third party provider. A second shirt for the Broken Skull Ranch uses an NWO theme, which may fall under a “parody” but WWE obviously don’t agree.
Rumors of heat between the two parties would seem to suggest this may be a little more than “just business,” and perhaps WWE are flexing their muscle. It’s even speculated that John Cena’s “springboard stunner” may be a direct shot at Austin.
