WWE Opposes 'Slamboree' And 'The Match Beyond' Trademarks Filed By Cody

WWE might tie up Cody a bit as they've filed to oppose the trademarks for "Slamboree" and "The Match Beyond."

WWE filed to oppose on March 24. The notice of opposition expired on April 23, at which point WWE filed for a 90-day extension, which would expire on July 22.

Slamboree was a pay-per-view created by Cody's father Dusty while The Match Beyond was the term used for WarGames to signify the start of the "winning period."  

Cody originally filed for the trademarks in November 2019. WWE acquired the Slamboree trademark when they purchase WCW in 2001, though the trademark was canceled/dead in 2004/2005. Cody has trademarked past WCW names associated with his father such as Bash at the Beach, which was used by AEW for a special episode of Dynamite in 2020. AEW has yet to use The Match Beyond or Slamboree, though they were set to put their own spin on WarGames with Blood & Guts.

Cody has previously stated that he filed trademarks on old names in hopes WWE would give up the trademark to Starrcade. Cody was able to file for the trademark on 'Cody Rhodes,' submitting the filing one day after WWE allowed the trademark to expire.
