Various: Cody’s “American Dream” Trademark Update, Miro on UpUpDownDown Status, Indies

Cody’s “American Dream” Trademark Filing Update

As noted before, Cody filed several trademarks last year that were related to former NWA and WCW events and concepts created by his late father Dusty Rhodes. One of those trademarks was for “The American Dream” which was Dusty’s in-ring nickname.

Fightful’s Robert Defelice reported that Cody’s trademark for “The American Dream” was recently given a third denial by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The official reason was due to the USPTO feeling that Cody did not resolve their previous issues with the filing or provide any new evidence that would have helped his case on the issue.

Official statement from USPTO:

Applicant’s request for reconsideration is denied. See 37 C.F.R. §2.63(b)(3). The trademark examining attorney has carefully reviewed applicant’s request and determined the request did not: (1) raise a new issue, (2) resolve all the outstanding issue(s), (3) provide any new or compelling evidence with regard to the outstanding issue(s), or (4) present analysis and arguments that were persuasive or shed new light on the outstanding issue(s). TMEP §§715.03(a)(ii)(B), 715.04(a).

Miro Comments on His Future on Xavier Woods’ UpUpDownDown Series

During a recent streaming session held by Miro on his Twitch channel, Miro commented on his AEW contract and his current status in Xavier Woods’ UpUpDownDown gaming channel on YouTube.

“I have no restrictions, I have no restrictions to doing different things. But it’s a rival company, I don’t think they would want to have me, which is nothing personal. UpUpDownDown is owned by WWE, it’s not owned by [Xavier Woods]. It’s a WWE thing and I don’t think they would want to have me.”
