WWE Superstar John Cena’s New Merchandise re-designed because of legal Threat

WWE Superstar John Cena’s new Merchandise ahead of his long awaited return to the world of sports entertainment on memorial day’s edition of Monday Night Raw was hit with a minor roadblock in the form of an American Beer company threatening legal action over the New Merchandise of John cena which was more than remarkably similar to one of their logos. Sporting the same Red, White and blue as the American flag but also looking similar to a logo that is vastly known to the consumers of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.
They, Pabst Blue ribbon beer via their official twitter account sent out a cease and desist warning to the WWE over possible copyright infringement as seen in the following screenshot.

So as of this past Saturday the shirt was pulled from the WWE shop website which was unable to fulfill the pre-orders of the shirt which went up shortly then and was taken down not long after WWE quickly re-introduced a brand new re-designed variation of the same shirt as seen below.

Even though we think it was a cool take on their beer logo, but it is better to be safe than sorry even for a Mega Giant of a Corporation as the WWE.
