WWE has filed for two new trademarks with the US Patent and Trademark Office. One of them appears to be for an NXT talent. The other is most likely related to Charlotte Flair.

On January 21, 2022, WWE filed a trademark for “Sudu Shah.” This name was ostensibly supposed to be for Grayson Waller’s new bodyguard. However, he was introduced on last night’s NXT as “Sanga.”

The second filing was for the phrase “The Queen” on January 19. This obviously relates to merchandise for Charlotte Flair. There could, of course, be some other intended use for the trademark.

Both filings were identical and can be read in full below:


“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”

We’ll see if WWE comes up with a different use for the Sudu Shah name. There is plenty of new talent coming through the doors at NXT. Fortunately, there appears to be no major controversy with these filings.
