WWE filed for the trademark rights to the “Royal Rumble,” one of their biggest pay-per-view events they present annually.
The company did so on February 24th with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). It’s listed for merchandising. Here is the description:
“WWE ROYAL RUMBLE™ trademark registration is intended to cover the categories of clothing, namely, tops, shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, hoodies; outerwear, namely, coats; bottoms, pants, shorts, underwear, dresses, pajamas, lingerie, clothing ties, scarves, gloves, swimwear; Halloween and masquerade costumes; footwear, namely, shoes, sneakers, slippers, flip flops, boots; headwear, namely, hats, caps; wrist bands; bandanas; championship trophy belts.”
WWE previously filed a trademark for Extreme Rules last August. The company held this year’s event in late January from St. Louis where they booked Brock Lesnar to win the Men’s Royal Rumble bout while the returning Ronda Rousey won the women’s bout.
Now, Lesnar as the WWE Champion will wrestle Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a title unification match in the main event of WrestleMania 38 – night 2 while the first night will see Rousey challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Title.
