WWE Opposes Cody's Trademarks On 'Slamboree' And 'The Match Beyond'

WWE has filed an opposition against Cody and his trademarks on 'The Match Beyond' and 'Slamboree.'

On September 21, the company filed paperwork claiming they purchased the rights to these concepts when they bought out WCW in 2001. WWE continues to utilize and promote Slamboree (a WCW pay-per-view event) and The Match Beyond (a name for WarGames), through its website and WWE Network.

As a result of the long standing use of the WWE SLAMBOREE Marks by WCW and WWE, the WWE SLAMBOREE Marks are uniquely and exclusively associated with WWE and the WWE SLAMBOREE Marks have become indelibly linked in the public’s mind in exclusive association with and in exclusive sponsorship by WWE.

As a result of the use of the WWE’s The Match Beyond Mark by WCW and WWE, WWE’s The Match Beyond Mark is uniquely and exclusively associated with WWE and WWE’s The Match Beyond Mark has become indelibly linked in the public’s mind in exclusive association with and in exclusive sponsorship by WWE.

WWE claims its use of Slamboree and The Match Beyond predates any use by Cody, who filed to trademark the terms in November 2019, and that his trademarks can cause confusion among the consumers.
