Several WWE In-Ring Trademarks Denied Due To Lack Of Written Consent By Talent

WWE is having trouble with a handful of in-ring trademarks.

In October 2020, WWE filed to trademark the in-ring names of Dominik Mysterio, Kay Lee Ray, Chelsea Green, A-Kid, Amale, Amir Jordan, and Aoife Valkyrie.

Heel by Nature reports those trademarks have yet to be approved as the talent has not given written consent to WWE for use. The trademarks will be abandoned in six months unless WWE provides the necessary documentation.

Because the individual named in the mark did not sign the application and the application did not include a proper written consent, applicant must provide a statement that the name in the mark identifies a particular living individual and a written consent to register the name.

Accordingly, applicant must submit both of the following:

(1) The following statement: “The name shown in the mark identifies a living individual whose consent to register is made of record.” If the name is a pseudonym, stage name, or nickname, applicant must provide the following statement: “Dominik Mysterio identifies _____ {specify actual name}, a living individual whose consent is of record.”

(2) A written consent, personally signed by the named individual, as follows: “I, Dominik Mysterio, consent to the use and registration of my name, Dominik Mysterio, as a trademark and/or service mark with the USPTO.”

WWE ran into similar trouble last year with Drew Gulak, Pete Dunne, Tony Nese, Justus, Malcolm Bivens, Mercedes Martinez, Keith Lee, Raquel González and Mia Yim.

Yim, Martinez, and Lee ended up filing their own trademarks for their respective ring names.
