WWE Opposing Several Trademarks Filed by Cody Rhodes

WWE has recently filed opposition to two trademarks that were filed by Cody Rhodes, according to Fightful.

Fightful’s Jeremy Lambert reported that WWE filed a notice of opposition on March 24th to the United State Patent and Trademark Office for the “Slamboree” and “The Match Beyond” trademarks, which had been filed by Rhodes in November 2019.

WWE was later granted an extension to officially file their opposition to these two trademarks, which expires on July 22nd.

Both trademarks are based on former WCW events and match types created by Cody’s father, Dusty Rhodes, during his career in WCW.
