WWE keeps introducing new names for freshly joined signees. Usually, a week later of filing for a trademark or, in some cases, before the filing is even made public, the company debuts a new wrestler. WWE filed several trademarks for names earlier this week.
WWE filed to trademark “Troy Donovan”, “Thea Hail”, and “Channing Lauren.” USPTO (United States Patent & Trademark Office) records revealed that the company locked those down. Each of the name filing included the following description,
> Troy Donovan
> Thea Hail
> Channing Lauren
“The trademark filing was for goods and services in the realms 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.”
All three names mentioned above were featured on this past week’s episode of NXT Level Up. Even though we saw the three compete in a losing effort in the their respective matches, it’s nice to know the company has plans for them.
