Today we can exclusively reveal the verdict on whether or not the WWF “scratch” logo is allowed to be shown on future WWE DVD releases…
That answer is yes – and as early as this month.
The new Brock Lesnar: Here Comes The Pain DVD and Blu-ray hits stores on October 30th (buy) and this is the first title affected. The WWF “scratch” logo, synonymous with the Attitude Era, is shown unaltered in relevant portions of the set.
Whilst the WWE logo is displayed in the corner of the screen at all times, the classic logo can be spotted without blurring – specifically in Lesnar’s debut, 4/8/2002 RAW segment, and Backlash 2002 match with Jeff Hardy. Check out the pics below.

As reported by PWInsider.com, WWE settled legal proceedings with the World Wildlife Fund, in an effort to put to rest the need to edit any WWF referencing content for the planned WWE Network. As of late several classic videos have been added to WWE.com which have no blurring to the logo and no audible editing of the “WWF” name either.
And yes – this means next month’s Attitude Era DVD will also be blur-free!
