You might remember them. Prior to the rise of AEW, WWE had been by far and away the most dominant wrestling promotion in the world. No one came close to touching them and that had been the case since WCW went out of business. By outlasting their competition, WWE was able to pick up some of the trademarks that had been forgotten, which was the case with two former events.

According to Wrestlingnews.co, WWE has filed trademark applications for Uncensored and SuperBrawl. Both of these were events used by WCW in the 1990s and neither has been used since WCW folded. It is not clear what WWE would be using the names for, though they have brought back former WCW concepts such as WarGames and Halloween Havoc among others, in NXT.

SuperBrawl and Uncensored were regular WCW pay per view events, running in the 1990s and into the 2000s. WCW mainly ran the shows in February and March respectively, though the first SuperBrawl was held in May. SuperBrawl did not usually have a special theme, though Uncensored was often presented as a more hardcore or violent themed show with several gimmick matches.

Opinion: For the life of me I do not understand why WWE waited over twenty years to use these names. SuperBrawl is a fine name for an event, even if it isn’t held around Super Bowl season. While I can’t quite imagine WWE running an Uncensored event, it is nice to have it in your back pocket. At the very least, it keps AEW from having them, but why not use what you have available?

What do you think of the names? What other show would you like to see brought back? Let us know in the comments below.
