WWE statement on bootlegger merchandise

WWE issued a statement to the Hollywood Reporter on the story on bootleggers selling their merchandise in the New Orleans area during WrestleMania weekend. As noted, the judge ruled against WWE so there will be no restrictions on people around the SuperDome this weekend. Here is WWE’s statement:

“It is customary practice for all touring shows to ask for a temporary restraining order to prevent their fans from being sold counterfeit, inferior goods.  Merchandise sales are important to the promoter, as well as to the arena or the stadium in which they play.  Sales of legitimate merchandise generate revenue for the promoter, the arena and to the local municipality.  This is the first time that WWE has experienced a negative decision for a temporary restraining order by a federal judge. Caveat emptor!”
