Ric Flair just filed for “The Man” trademark

In an interesting development, Ric Flair, LLC filed for “The Man” trademark on 8/26.

For decades, Flair would refer to himself as “The Man” in his promos when he would tell opponents “to be the man you have to beat the man.”

In a tweet posted on 8/24, Flair seemed to take issue with The Man being used by Becky Lynch and Taylor Swift. Lynch uses “The Man” on her WWE merchandise and Taylor Swift recently released a song titled, “The Man.”

Flair tweeted: “I Hate To Break It To You Both @BeckyLynchWWE And @taylorswift13, But I’m THE MAN!!! And To Be THE MAN, You Gotta Beat THE MAN! WOOOOO! #theman”

The trademark filing states that it’s for the following:

“Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions, live appearances and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media, namely, television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; Providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; Providing a website in the field of sports entertainment; Fan club services; organizing and staging entertainment events with wrestling fan club members; Providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; Online journals, namely, blogs, in the fields of sports entertainment.”

Ric Flair, LLC’s “THE MAN” trademark filing also covers “Clothing, footwear, headgear.”
