New trademark filing may reveal what name Dakota Kai will use post-WWE

Former WWE star Dakota Kai has filed a new trademark application for “King Kota” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

She made the filing through Michael E. Dockins, the same attorney who handles trademark filings and other issues for many pro wrestlers including those who work for AEW.

It’s listed for merchandising and entertainment purposes. Here is the description for entertainment services:

“IC 041. US 100 101 107. G & S: Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Entertainment services, namely, live appearances by a professional wrestling and sports entertainment personality; Entertainment services, namely, personal appearances by a professional wrestling and sports entertainment personality; Entertainment services, namely, televised appearances by a professional wrestling and sports entertainment personality; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; Providing online interviews featuring professional wrestling and sports entertainment personality in the field of professional wrestling and sports entertainment for entertainment purposes.”

Kai, real name Cheree Crowley, was released by WWE alongside several other NXT names last month. She had been with the company for nearly six years. Prior to the release, Kai had made it clear to management that she wasn’t planning to renew her contract and wanted out of the company.

Dave Meltzer previously reported that the decision to let her go was made after management didn’t see her as main roster material following her working several dark match tryouts.

She will be free and clear to sign with other promotions on May 29th when her WWE non-compete clause expires.
