WWE Secures Several WCW Trademarks Previously Sought Out By Cody Rhodes
In filings with The United States Patent and Trademark Office, WWE has filed trademarks on six former WCW event names, many of which were previously registered by Cody. The events in question are as follows:
- The Match Beyond
- Bunkhouse Stampede
- Bash At The Beach
AEW ran several Bash at the Beach-branded shows earlier this year, but it seems that the trademarks were a bartering chip in Cody’s reclamation of his last name. It was revealed earlier this week that WWE had given up the Cody Rhodes trademark and that the two parties were negotiating. The deal seems to be in place now, and there are “no hard feelings” between the two parties according to Cody.
