Bring back the classics. There are several major events on the WWE lineup every years, some of which have been held annually for a very long time. Every so often WWE will bring back one of the older shows that has not been used in a long time, even perhaps something from another promotion. That seems to be the case again, as WWE seems to be getting ready to bring something back.

According to, WWE has registered trademarks for several former ECW pay per view events. WWE has never run any of these events under their own banner, including when ECW was revived starting in 2006. It is not clear if or when these shows will be used. NXT has previously presented shows originally used by WCW. The following show names have been trademarked:

• Barely Legal
• Cyberslam
• Hardcore Heaven
• Massacre On 34th Street

There were some moments at these shows. Check out some of the originals:

Opinion: WWE bringing back some of these older names, even less common ones like Massacre On 34th Street, do open some doors. Why bother trying to come up with some kind of new name that may or may not work when there are names right there to use? WWE knows how to make these things work and hopefully they can pull it off again with some of these.

What do you think of the names? Which would be the best? Let us know in the comments below.
