WWE wants to own anything that they put out on their programming. It only makes sense. Now they are laying down copyrights on more Superstar names.
NXT is on the USA Network now so those Superstars will be getting a lot more attention. This is why WWE needed to lock some more names down with copyrights.
PW Insider reports that WWE has registered trademarks for Fabian Aichner, Marcel Barthel, Riddick Moss and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott.
Of course, “Swerve” was Shane Strickland’s nickname before he came to WWE. Now that he is Isaiah Scott it looks like WWE is securing a copyright on “Swerve” as well.
