Reginald started out on WWE television as Carmella’s Sommelier, but he was soon axed from that job. Then he was paired up with Nia Jax and Shanya Baszler for a bit. It didn’t take him very long to find a new place on the WWE roster after they kicked him to the curb either. Now he is WWE 24/7 and receiving quite a spotlight in the process.
The company shortened Reginald’s name and he is now just “Reggie.” That name isn’t going away, because the company locked down a trademark on the name.
Recent filings indicate that WWE filed a trademark on “Reggie.” This filing was executed in the typical way that all WWE wrestler trademarks are filed. The company can now use the name in “entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler.”
Reggie dropped his French accent when he got that name change as well. Vince McMahon is also taking full advantage of his wide range of skills as a former Cirque du Soleil performer. Odds are he will continue flipping and entertaining WWE fans for some time to come.
