WWE has a lot of plans for the pipeline, and one of them might include borrowing the name of a Japanese god. The company laid down a trademark recently that has a lot of fans guessing.

According to a report from Heel By Nature, WWE has registered a copyright for Hachiman. This filing was done on June 22nd and entered into the database on June 25th. It is currently unknown what this new Hachiman trademark is for.

Formerly in Shinto and later commonly known as Hachiman (八幡神, Japanese Buddhist pronunciation) is the syncretic divinity of archery and war

Hachiman is one of the most popular Shintō deities of Japan and is even worshiped by Samurais. WWE has a few people that they have not debuted yet, so that name could go to any of them. It will be very interesting to see how WWE handles this new filing.

Fan can probably expect Hachiman to start popping up somewhere on WWE programming soon. The company typically doesn’t wait long before debuting a name on television after they lay down a trademark for it.

What do you think WWE is going to do with Hachiman? Sound off in the comments!
