AEW has some very big plans, but one of those possible aspects might need to change. Because Cody Rhodes tried to trademark a famous event name, but it didn’t work.

PW Insider reports that Cody Rhodes’ attempt to trademark “Bash At The Beach” has failed. The USPTO said there is a “likelihood of confusion with WWE’s registered ‘The Bash’ trademark.”

What is very interesting is the fact that WWE hasn’t held a “The Bash” pay-per-view since 2008. Also, “The Bash” was a shortened version of Great American Bash and not “At The Beach.” Regardless, it looks like AEW can still hold a pay-per-view at a beach, they just can’t call it a bash.

Cody’s attempt to trademark Dusty Rhodes’ name was also blocked because of the likelihood that it would be confused with his own brother’s name, Dustin Rhodes.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
