The Undertaker gave his final farewell at Survivor Series last year, but the Deadman hasn’t left WWE. In fact, he signed a huge legends contract that will see him with the company for years to come. WWE wants to make sure that they totally own The Undertaker’s name and likeness as well.
Vince McMahon’s company realizes that intellectual property is the name of the game. They recently locked down The Undertaker’s name with a new trademark. This was completed on October 22nd, 2021 and it is for merchandising purposes.
You can check out the entire description below to note that this new trademark covers a wide array of areas including action figures of all kinds and accessories as well. Board games, toy vehicles, and “hand-held units” are also listed in the filing.
Mark For: UNDERTAKER trademark registration is intended to cover the categories of toys, namely, action figures, accessories therefor; dolls; cases for action figures; toy wrestling rings; playsets for use with action figures; toy vehicles; board games; hand-held units for playing electronic game other than those adopted for use with an electronic display screen or monitor; tabletop action skill games; construction toys; playing cards; puzzles; stuffed toys; plush toys; toy belts; knee and elbow pads for athletic use; toy foam hands; costume masks; novelty face masks; Christmas tree decorations; toy spinning tops; arcade games; kites; bobble-head dolls; puppets; card games; toy guitars; toy water guns; vinyl products for playing in a pool; doll furniture; party favors in the nature of crackers and noisemakers; skateboards; toy scooters; paper party favors; collectible championship belts.
The Undertaker was around for WWE Crown Jewel, but he did not emerge during the show. Taker did introduce Pitbull during his concert that week, but WWE fans are still waiting to hear his legendary gong go off once again. Only time will tell when that will happen, but at least fans can expect a lot more merchandise.
