- As noted, WWE recently filed to trademark the "global localization" name for various uses. John Pollock noted on Twitter that WWE's new video of the 2018 Business Partner Summit, which was held during WrestleMania 34 Week in New Orleans, features Triple H talking about "global localization" and what it means for the WWE NXT brand. Pollock posted the following:
Paul Levesque takes credit for coming up with "Global Localization". He explained their push to create NXT brands around the world as a global territorial system, reminiscent of the plan the company toyed with over a decade ago but never went through with. pic.twitter.com/bqgWHv1Cak— John Pollock (@iamjohnpollock) April 25, 2018
I thought that global localization was an idea shane wanted to do in the early to mid 2000s.— Dom homie (@dom_homie) April 25, 2018
He was referring to coming up with the term "Global localization" and not specifically the concept https://t.co/hgM15HEJET— John Pollock (@iamjohnpollock) April 25, 2018
