Cody filed to trademark the name on April 13, the day WWE's trademark lapsed, but WWE filed a late renewal, claiming that their filing and payment was delayed due to COVID-19. The late renewal was filed on May 15.

In July, Cody's trademark was refused due to WWE's filing. At the time, he said he has no grudge over WWE filing for a late renewal. 

In October 2019, Cody said WWE wasn't holding the name hostage and that he could use the Rhodes name without an issue, but he wouldn't. 

Cody has until January 2021 to file an update on his case.
