Arn Anderson’s plan to bring back The 4 Horsemen under new front seem to have halted for a bit. As the veteran is aiming to retain “The Four Horsemen” trademark for the legendary group, he’s having a bit of trouble.

According to Heel By Nature, Anderson shot out a trademark application in order to obtain the trademark to the name. He filed the application under the professional wrestling and sports entertainment personalities, right under the Entertainment Services section.

His plea, however, stood rejected as they cited “likelihood of confusion” as the main reason for rejection. The USPTO put a lot of weight behind their judgments through the attachment of many documents which reveal that the name is also under use by WCW/WWE.

The Examining Attorney states that the goods and/or services in this case are highly related. The Cited Mark is registered for live music by a band. Applicant has applied to register its mark for professional wrestling and professional wrestling related services.

Applicant’s services are professional wrestling. Registrant’s business is driven by advertising to fans of live music and
of the band. Applicant’s business is driven by advertising to fans of professional wrestling.


Anderson recently expressed that Roman Reigns was booked like god in WWE. He also wanted to write a tell-all memoir about WWE, but apparently he does not have the permission. Big E revealed that he used Anderson’s shirtless picture to set up his dating profile.
