Earlier this year, All Elite Wrestling ran a two-week event dubbed Bash At The Beach, which, of course, was a former WCW pay-per-view name. Cody Rhodes has spoken out about owning some former WCW trademarks and says that aside from one, it's unlikely you will see too many of them utilized in AEW.
Speaking on a media call prior to the February 19th, 2019 episode of AEW Dynamite from Atlanta, Georgia, Cody addressed the trademark issue. Cody would say that Bash At The Beach, was not meant to be utilized in any offensive way and a lot of his trademarking moves are made simply to preserve the legacy of his father, Dusty Rhodes, and all that he created in professional wrestling.
"Well, as a lot of people know, sometimes reported accurately and sometimes not reported accurately, I have a good deal of trademarks to my name. Some of them are former WCW events. I'd actually say, though, it's unlikely you see many more of those. Maybe, maybe one, wink, wink, wink," Cody teased. "But I honestly think it's so much fun to have this EVP core and to have Tony Khan, this kind of creative brain trust to come up with our own stuff. Bash At The Beach was just meant to be something fun. It wasn't meant to offend anybody and it wasn't done in a bitter way. So it's possible you could see them. I have those and I continue to trademark things that I think my dad had a deal and, you know, had a hand in creating. But that's more about protecting his legacy from my mother. Who controls his estate and everything goes to her. There's no money in it for me or for Dustin, anything like that. So maybe, maybe you'll see one, and I'm winking heavily, but I don't know about fashion, the beach or the others."
All Elite Wrestling’s next major event is an original one for them, Revolution. AEW Revolution will be held on February 29th, live on pay-per-view and B/R Live.
