WWE has filed a new trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on March 2nd for the term ‘Jessamyn Duke.’
This is interesting as Duke, who is an NXT wrestler, would have to sign a consent form in order for WWE to get the trademark approved. There’s no word yet on whether WWE got the consent from Duke, but we won’t know for at least a few months.
If WWE does get the trademark and Duke ever leaves WWE then it would make for an intriguing situation should WWE not give Duke the trademark rights for her to use in another promotion. However, it’s her legal name so there could always be a legal battle.
Here is the description:
“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.”
Duke, who was an MMA fighter and held a pro record of 3-5-1, signed with WWE in 2018. She is part of the MMA Four Horsewomen group alongside good friends Ronda Rousey, Shayna Baszler, and Marina Shafir.
Her last match in NXT came back in December 2019 where she lost a six-woman tag team match at a live event. She was last used on TV during the August 31, 2020 edition of Raw to work a Raw Underground segment.
