NEW TRADEMARKS FILED FOR HALLOWEEN HAVOC, SISTER ABIGAIL...BUT NOT BY WWE

A Las Vegas-based company titled KBN INC. CORPORATION NEVADA has applied to trademark 'Halloween Havoc' on 6/8, listing the trademark filing for "T-shirts; Baseball caps and hats; Clothing for wear in wrestling games; Graphic T-shirts" as well as for "Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services in the nature of a wrestling club; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network."

The Halloween Havoc logo KBN has attempted to trademark (see below) is extremely similar to the one used by World Championship Wrestling, which utilized that PPV title and theme annually from October 1989 through October 2000 before the company was shut down and its assets were purchased by WWE in March 2001.   The WCW trademark on the name, was abandoned on 10/22/05.    Interestingly, WWE does not currently have any active 'Halloween Havoc' trademarks. 

Here is the graphic associated with the Halloween Havoc trademark filing, which is currently the only filing associated with KBN Inc., which was incorporated in February 2018: 

Also as interesting is that Caliifornia-based Tatevik Hunanyan (who wrestles independently as Tatevik the Gamer) applied to trademark the name 'Sister Abigail' on 6/5, listing the trademark as for "Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer also for wrestling purposes."  WWE have never previously applied to trademark the name of the Sister Abigail character, which has been referenced the entire course of Bray Wyatt's WWE run.  At one point, a storyline featuring Wyatt wrestling Finn Balor under the Sister Abigail persona was created, but dropped after an illness forced Wyatt to be pulled from performing from the ring.
