At last night’s Smackdown Tapings in Jacksonville, FL, two young boys called Roman Reigns the “n-word” during his entrance, prompting the other fans making comments. The boys mother did not take well to her sons being criticized and began to yell at the fans, accusing them of taping and taking photos of her kids.

WWE Considering Taking Legal Action Against Recently Released Wrestler

The company is looking to take legal action against the former Brad Maddox and Pro Wrestling Tees for trademark infringement over his new ring name, which is Mad Braddox. The WWE Legal Department believes the new name is too similar and attempted to register the name several weeks. The WWE already owns intellectual property rights to the Brad Maddox name and once the trademark is approved, it will give them a much stronger legal position.
