WWE’s new NXT 2.0 is all about building characters and the company locked down a new nickname for a future star with success written all over him.
Xyon Quinn, former rugby player Daniel Vidot, made his NXT 2.0 debut and he is not stopping there. He is getting a real spotlight and the company made sure that his nickname is sticking around.
According to recent USPTO filings, WWE registered a trademark for “Samoan Ghost” for Xyon Quinn. This trademark was registered in the typical way that all pro wrestling trademarks are filed. You can check out the full description for reference below.
“SAMOAN GHOST™ trademark registration is intended to cover the categories of entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information; fan club services, namely, organizing sporting events in the field of wrestling for wrestling fan club members; organizing social entertainment events for entertainment purposes for wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the field of sports entertainment.”
The filing took place on September 25th, so that was just after he debuted on television. It is easy to picture Xyon Quinn catching Vince McMahon’s eye, but he is in NXT 2.0 to learn the ropes before making that main roster jump.
