- WWE has recently registered the trademark “WWE Spotlight” as a name for a new television show. This was the title of one of their syndicated series in the 1980s.
– Speaking of registered trademarks, it appears as if WWE is having a difficult time registering the “Ryback” trademark. WWE was first refused back in January because the USPTO felt it was merely a surname and they don’t allow trademarks for such. WWE got back to them with various reasons as to why their Ryback is more than just a surname. They were again refused, this time final, because the USPTO were not satisfied with their answer.
