Role Playing Game developer White Wolf is suing WWE over the use of the name "Gangrel." White Wolf uses the name in its game, Vampire: The Masquerade. In 1998, WWE signed a five year deal with White Wolf to use the name for the character played by David Heath. That deal expired in 2003 and WWE did not renew it. But in December of 2007, WWE used the Gangrel character at their 15’th Anniversary RAW Special.
