WWE Filed A Trademark For A New TV Show Called ‘The Bump’

We live in an era of meta entertainment, where every story also contains the story of how that story was created. WWE already does that sort of thing in Network shows like Chronicle and WWE 24, but apparently they’re working on some kind of new attempt to tell the story of how pro wrestling (sorry, Sports Entertainment) stories are told in a TV Show format.

As reported by PWInsider, WWE filed a trademark for a TV show called The Bump, and this is the official description of that show from the filing:

A show about professional wrestling; the production and exhibition of professional wrestling events rendered live and through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing wrestling news and information through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing information in the fields of professional wrestling through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing a website in the field of professional wrestling.

That’s a pretty dense and hard to follow paragraph, but it sounds like they’re working on some kind of non-kayfabe documentary about the production side of wrestling, which could be pretty interesting. On the other hand, I’m still a little disappointed, because the name “The Bump” made me think the show was going to be about the importance of cocaine to the wrestling business in the 1980s.
