In fact, Vinnie Mac really doesn't even like the fact that it exists..
Since this has no ties to the WWE, then it can use the logo all it wants. Hell, it can replace the other logos in the movie with the scratch logo if it wants.
Well, Vince did allow for the film to use WWF stars at the time and access to Titan Towers, backstage areas, and actual match footage. He allegedly got cold feet before the debut of the film though and tried to squash the promotion of the film by not allowing ads for it during Raw and Smackdown.
I personally think Vince didn't mind it and caused the controversy himself to get extra press. The film did receive tons of mainstream articles and good reviews, which almost certainly helped the WWF, which was in a boom period at the time for its business.
