Jeff Jarrett has filed a new trademark for “slap nutz” through trademark attorney Michael E. Dockins.
He did so on July 27th for clothling purposes with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
“Slap nuts” was a term he made famous during his time in the pro wrestling business.
Earlier this year while speaking with Chris Van Vliet on his Insight podcast, the WWE Hall of Fame explained what the phrase meant. It turns out that he picked up the term from his grandmother.
“My grandmother used to call folks, ‘slappies’, and that is people who slap their gums. They know more and more about less and less everyday. During that time, the slap nuts just rolled off. Good old standards and practices of Turner, when they called me in, at a Nitro, slap nuts was really just first taking off. They were like, ‘We need to ask you a question’, and they were dead serious. They said, ‘What does slap nuts mean? We have looked in the Urban Dictionary and we can’t find it.” I’m like, wow, this business has come a long way. I’m being questioned about where slap nuts came from.”
Earlier this month, independent wrestling promotion Freedom Pro Wrestling filed a trademark under entertainment services for the term “slapnuts.”
