TRADEMARK UPDATES ON CODY RHODES AND 'THE MAN'

By Steven Fernandes on 2020-07-02 14:49:00

Some trademark updates:

Cody's application of the 'Cody Rhodes' trademark has been given an initial refusal, because of similarity with WWE's registration of the same trademark. In checking with WWE's registration, which was set to expire on April 13 (the same day Cody started his application), they actually renewed it on May 15th claiming the delay was due to COVID-19. 

WWE's application of 'The Man' was abandoned by the USPTO because it was initially refused back in December while still under ownership by Ric Flair, and the 6-month window to respond just passed.
