WWE has recently filed a new trademark that could indicate a name change for an injured WWE Superstar. A recent trademark filing shows that WWE has filed for "Colin Cassady." That is the name that he used during his run in NXT and it was later shortened to just Big Cass.
Cass has been out of action since August when he suffered a torn ACL during a match with former tag team partner Enzo Amore. At the time, he was working as a heel but there's been talk of bringing him back as a babyface. People that have seen him at the WWE Performance Center say that he is in the best shape of his life.
At last word, his return to WWE television is imminent.
In other trademark news, WWE recently filed for the trademark "Global Localization" for the following purposes:
"Entertainment services, namely, a show about professional wrestling; entertainment services, namely, the production and exhibition of professional wrestling events 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; fan club services, namely, organizing and staging events with wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the field of sports entertainment; online journals, namely, blogs in the fields of sports entertainment; business development; entertainment services, namely, development and distribution of talent and content"
