I honestly question the legality of something like that..that can't be legal at all. At worst, it's false advertising...and at best, it's using the likeness of Roode in a way that he never agreed to. It's their footage...they have the right to it. That much is obvious. But it can't be legal to pretend like it's relevant to the current product.
I mean, hell...WWE has old footage, and they show it...but they can't put out anything "new" involving a star that is no longer with them...not unless that person has a legends contract. Surely, using old footage with the intent to trick fans and make it appear as though a talent is in your company is a "no no" for a wrestling promotion.
And it's not even a harmless misunderstanding. They very clearly mentioned NXT and said that he had "made the jump". They just blatantly tried to make it sound like it was current footage of Roode in their promotion. If WWE showed a clip of CM Punk and said "bah gawd...CM Punk is back in WWE"...I'm willing to bet, Punk would be on the phone with his lawyer 20 seconds later.
