Young Bucks vs WWE
Young Bucks vs WWE
If you did not hear WWE sent a cease & desist letter claiming they trademarked the hand gesture which is known by wrestling fans as “Too Sweet”. WWE is claiming that this is a trademarked brand that was obtained by their purchase of WCW.
The cease & desist letter was sent the next day after The Bullet Club recorded a skit outside of RAW. WWE’s claims is that it is intellectual property violations from The Bucks DVD “Too Sweet Journey” and their “Too Sweet T-Shirts.” The letter stated that legal action will be taken which would cause the tag team to pay 150,000 per items, profits made from sales of their items, and using the hand gesture.
WWE has never trademarked or registered ownership of the hand gesture until 2015. Bucks started marketing it in 2013. This is not the only time WWE has made it known of their displeasure of the tag team. WWE warned the Tag Team to not use the gesture known as “Suck It.”
However, this isn’t a battle that can be won on either side. The lawsuit is clearly a way to drain them of any financial funds. If taken to court can be dragged out for many years or it could be just open and close.

This in no way keeping the famous tag team down. Young Bucks released new merchandise known as their “Cease & Desist Merchandise”. If anything it just raised the sales for the tag team. The new Young Buck shirt is already the highest selling shirt on Pro Wrestling Tees.com.
