A trademark was filed for “World Wrestling Federation” by Demperio Sports & Entertainment, LLC in December and the filing doesn’t appear to have any connection to Vince McMahon and WWE.
The trademark filing states that it is for the following:
“Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network”
The filing was on December 20, 2020, but it has yet to be reviewed by a trademark examiner and can still be either rejected or accepted by the trademark office. The likelihood of this trademark getting approved seems slim since WWE could argue prior use and confusion in the marketplace. We’ll keep an eye on this filing.
Demperio Sports & Entertainment, LLC owns trademarks for Pats Albany Patroons and CBA Continental Basketball Association.
