On November 18th, WWE filed a trademark for a moniker used by a top star in the company.
WWE filed the trademark for “Legend Killer”, a nickname used by Randy Orton, with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
It’s listed to be used in entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler. Its description reads like the following:
IC 041. US 100 101 107. G & S: Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media including 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 information; fan club services, namely, organizing sporting events in the field of wrestling for wrestling fan club members; organizing social entertainment events for entertainment purposes for wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the field of sports entertainment.
This comes after WWE had filed trademarks for “The Big Dog”, a nickname for Roman Reigns, as well as nicknames for Alexa Bliss, and Charlotte Flair.
Orton dropped the WWE Title to Drew McIntyre last Monday night on Raw. As a result, he was pulled from his champion vs. champion bout against Universal Title holder Roman Reigns at Sunday’s Survivor Series.
