WWE Negotiating Over 'Stone Cold' Trademark

WWE has entered into negotiation settlements with NFL player Chris Jones over the "Stone Cold" trademark. 

WWE filed a complaint on September 14 opposing the trademark “Stone Cold Jones Soda," which WWE believes infringes on their "Stone Cold" and "Stone Cold Steve Austin" trademarks. On October 23, Stone Cold LLC responded, saying they didn't believe there was any confusion. You can find the original complaint and response by clicking here.
