WWE demanded that Angle and TNA not refer to his ankle lock finisher as the “Angle lock.” Angle laughed at that one because he had no idea that anyone called his finisher the “Angle lock” to begin with it, thinking it’s always been the ankle lock. WWE also demanded that Angle not call himself “The Wrestling Machine,” or “The Machine.” Surprisingly, they didn’t object to him wearing a mouthpiece, but it can’t have “Machine” written on it.
Also, we should find out soon if WWE claimed ownership to the term “Angle slam” and if he’ll have to use a new name for the manuever. WWE can probably rightfully claim ownership to that term. Also note, the U.S. Olympic committee probably wouldn’t allow TNA to use the term “Olympic slam.”
