Cody On NXT Great American Bash: I Don't Own The IP And Ain't Holding Much Of A Grudge

WWE NXT is set to revive Great American Bash next Wednesday with a two-week NXT special. 

WWE owns the trademark to Great American Bash, which was an idea brought to life by Dusty Rhodes in 1985. The two-week NXT special will go head-to-head with the two-week AEW special entitled Fyter Fest. WWE had not used the name since 2012 for a SmackDown special.

Taking to social media, Cody addressed WWE using the Great American Bash name. 

Cody has often expressed interest in acquiring the Great American Bash trademark from WWE. He has filed trademarks on old WCW names such as Bash at the Beach and Slamboree, but he said in an interview on AEW Unrestricted that he would give up 100 Slamboree trademarks for the trademarks to Starrcade and Great American Bash.

Following the announcement on Wednesday, Cody's sister Teil tweeted that WWE should "cut my mom a check" for using the name.
