AEW has a lot of trademarks, because they realize that intellectual property is the name of the game. Now the company has a new trademark thanks to a popular Tony Khan phrase.
The company registered a trademark for “WYW” and “Watch Your Wrestling.” This was completed on October 18th and was listed under the “entertainment service” category.
The description for the new copyright contains many of the same elements that appear in typical pro wrestling filings. The company can now use this phrase in many ways and that should be expected.
“Educational and entertainment services, namely, a continuing program about wrestling accessible by radio, television, satellite, audio, video and computer networks; Entertainment services in the nature of production of television shows and multimedia entertainment content featuring wrestling programs and events; Entertainment services, namely, production and distribution of ongoing television programs in the field of wrestling; Entertainment services, namely, providing ongoing webisodes featuring wrestling via a global computer network; Entertainment services, namely, an ongoing multimedia program featuring wrestling distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; Entertainment services, namely, an ongoing series featuring wrestling provided through a global computer network; Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services in the nature of live wrestling performances; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network.”
It is interesting that AEW is going all out with registering this trademark. After all, their competition includes the word “wrestling” on their always-growing list of banned words.
