WWE looks to be preparing to introduce a new NXT star. The promotion has filed a new trademark for a ring name. Usually, when this happens, the talent using the name either makes their debut soon after or has already been working for the company.

The latest ring name WWE is seeking to own is “Lyra Valkyria.” According to the US Patent and Trademark Office, the name has been reserved for use by WWE for entertainment services. The full description of trademark is as follows.

Mark For: LYRA VALKYRIA trademark registration is intended to cover the categories 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.

This is very interesting, because WWE had Taya Valkyrie around NXT as Franky Monet, but she was fired. Now, it appears that WWE is giving the Valkyrie name, something Vince McMahon’s company made her change, another try.


The new trademark was filed on October 13th. It is unknown who the name will be utilised for, but it is clearly a female talent. Fans will have to keep a close eye on NXT for the next few weeks. It’s highly likely a new wrestler given the connotations surrounding the name “Valkyrie.”
