WWE News: WWE Files For New NWO Trademarks

Published

on

In some interesting news, the WWE recently filed two new trademarks on May 30th for the NWO name. The NWO is of course arguably the most popular faction in wrestling history and is credited with sparking wrestling’s boom in popularity in the late 1990’s. The group headed by Hollywood Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash ran roughshod over WCW and became the driving force in the company beating the WWF’s Monday Night RAW in the ratings for 83 straight weeks. The trio would later reprise the faction in the WWE in 2002.

The trademark filings read as follows:

“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 and staging events with wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the fields of sports entertainment.”

“Clothing, namely, tops, shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, hoodies; outerwear, namely, coats; bottoms, pants, shorts, underwear, dresses, pajamas, lingerie, clothing ties, scarves, gloves, swimwear; Halloween and masquerade costumes; footwear, namely, shoes, sneakers, slippers, flip flops, boots; headwear, namely, hats, caps; wrist bands; bandanas.”

EA’s Take: This is interesting due to the fact that WWE already has some trademarks for the NWO, so there are some jumping to the conclusion that the NWO will be returning to television in some fashion. I even caught one report claiming that AJ Styles is reforming the group due to his Bullet Club past. In my best Miz impression, “Really? Really?! REALLY?!”. Talk about taking a leap. We won’t give you water trash like that here at The Chairshot and while I was a big NWO fan 20 years ago, I see no reason or need for WWE to relive it. I see this as nothing more than the company “crossing their t’s and dotting their i’s” in a sense. We’ve seen them file trademarks for other things to prevent them from being used outside the WWE (such as the ‘Too Sweet’ hand gesture for merchandise) and that’s what I believe this to be as well.

AXS TV Denies Being Involved With Reported Upstart Promotion

Published

on

As we noted earlier, a new report has surfaced today stating that current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho has been working with WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross on starting a new wrestling promotion with Barry Bloom and backed by Jacksonville Jaguars’ Owner Shad Khan (see the whole story here).

It was said that AXS TV, who currently is the home to New Japan Pro Wrestling and the upcoming WOW-Women Of Wrestling in January, was already in talks with the promotion and an executive was working to “fast track” a deal. The promotion which reportedly already has Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and Hangman Page on board, was reportedly eyeing a late-2019/early-2020 broadcast date.

Now, WrestlingInc is reporting that after speaking with a representative from AXS TV about the project, they replied with, “There’s no truth to the AXS TV component”. It was noted that they couldn’t confirm Chris Jericho or Jim Ross’ involvement, but AXS TV is said to be “very committed” to NJPW and has some big plans for them in 2019.

EA’s Take: All aboard the speculation train! So here’s what I find interesting; the AXS TV rep specifically said no truth to the “AXS TV component” and not necessarily the component that it’s actually legitimate that Jericho and JR are starting a company. A very interesting choice of words by that person that you can take any number of ways.
