Update on the WWE Video Game Lawsuit, Shaq Arrives for Tonight’s RAW

– WWE has been plugging Shaq’s Twitter page all day but so far, he has yet to Tweet anything about hosting tonight’s RAW. WWE’s website does have a feature up saying Shaq has arrived at the Verizon Center for tonight’s show. Shaq’s kids were with him in the photo they had up.

– WWE video game publisher THQ is claiming victory over partner Jakks Pacific in the latest legal over the licensing rights for World Wrestling Entertainment.

Video game blog Kotaku.com reports that a binding arbitration between the two companies was announced today. An arbitrator ruled that Jakks is only entitled to 6% of sales from THQ WWE games, down from 10% under their previous agreement.

The new, lower rate, is retroactive to July 1, 2006 and runs through the end of this year. As a result, THQ expects to bring in an extra $23 million during the fiscal 2010 quarter ending this September. Back in June, Jakks notified WWE of their intentions to renew their license to create WWE games. THQ stepped in and said WWE couldn’t make a new agreement with Jakks without talking to them first, which led to today’s development.
