AEW is a company that is built around various factions in the style of New Japan Pro Wrestling. From the Dark Order to Best Friends, Team Taz, The Elite, and the Jericho Appreciation Society, it seems like everyone has a group backing them. AEW recently locked down the name for a brand-new stable.
According to PW Insider, AEW applied to trademark the name “Varsity Club,” which was a stable from the 1980s, on October 10. Rick Steiner, Kevin Sullivan, Mike Rotunda, and Steve Williams were part of the group when it first formed at Jim Crockett Promotions. The trademark filing reads the following:
G & S: Entertainment in the nature of live performances by a group or individual wrestlers; Entertainment services, namely, live appearances by a group or individual wrestlers; Entertainment services, namely, televised appearances by a group or individual wrestlers; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer.
AEW has had a few major complaints from fans since the outset of the company in 2019. One of the most frequent is the lack of women’s matches on Dynamite and Rampage. AEW also filed trademark for “All Elite Women” back in August.
Fans will have to stay tuned to AEW for an official announcement. It does appear some new plans are cooking for the future. When it is known for sure, you’ll find out right here at Ringside News.
