WWE Reportedly Received Copyright Complaint Over 'Great Balls Of Fire' Name

On this week's episode of Dinner With The King, hosts WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler and Glenn Moore discussed WWE's usage of the Great Balls of Fire name. Lawler revealed that WWE and Jerry Lee Lewis, who owns the usage of "Great Balls of Fire", worked out a deal.

"My personal attorney here in Memphis is Joe Barton. Good friend of mine and my attorney," Lawler said. "I got a phone call from Joe a few weeks ago, and Joe also represents Jerry Lee Lewis. And Joe said, 'Hey Jerry, do you happen to know who I would contact at the WWE about copyright infringement?' I go, 'What? What are you talking about?' He goes, 'Well, we understand they are doing a pay-per-view called Great Balls of Fire and Jerry Lee has that phrase trademarked. He has ever since they recorded the song.'

"So, I put him in touch with the WWE people, gave him a name. Apparently he called them and got everything worked out. Not only are they using the name, they are using Jerry Lee's song, which is awesome."
