Mance Warner is keeping hold of his intellectual-property like an ice-cold six-pack.
On August 27, Warner applied to trademark "Southern Stomper" name. Warner will be a big part of MLW's restart, which PWInsider reports will emanate from Orlando, Florida.
As of this writing, specific details of the trademark description are unknown. As of late, wrestler trademarks have become more commonplace as performers look to ensure that they own the rights to their persona.
