WWE files for 3 new Trademarks
- Could this Trademark lead to some interesting development for the character of Bray Wyatt?
- WWE has filed for three interesting Trademarks, leaving the fans wondering!
WWE has been on a Trademark filing streak for the last ten days or so, filing for three interesting terms. As reported by Wrestling Inc, WWE has filed for the trademark of "In Your House on May 11. WWE soon announced the return of the pay-per-view with the same name as NXT TakeOver: In Your House will take place on June 7 on the WWE Network.
"In Your House" was a successful WWE PPV in the 90s, with the last event under this name taking place in 1999, which was main-evented by Stone Cold Steve Austin and Vince McMahon in a Steel Cage Match. The following description was provided for the filing with the USPTO (The United States Patent & Trademark Office) -
"IC 041. US 100 101 107. G & S: 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"
WWE files for Trademark of "Sister Abigail"
The second major trademark that was filed by the company was on the term "Sister Abigail" on May 13. As most fans are aware, Sister Abigail is the name of the finisher of Bray Wyatt and also an important character in the story of the gimmick, believed to be the source of Wyatt's powers.
There have been numerous rumors and theories on WWE debuting the Sister Abigail character on-screen but we are yet to see that happen. There was a time in September 2017, during Wyatt's feud with Finn Balor where the Eater of the Worlds transformed himself and started to embody Sister Abigail. A match was scheduled to take place between "The Demon King" Finn Balor and the "Sister Abigail" version of Bray Wyatt at TLC 2017. The match was unfortunately scrapped as Wyatt got ill and missed the show. WWE never tried to implement that idea again!
The following description was given for the above filing -
"041. US 100 101 107. G & S: Entertainment services, namely, a show about professional wrestling; entertainment services, namely, the production and exhibition of professional wrestling events rendered live and through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing wrestling news and information through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment through broadcast media including television and distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information"
