Real Reason AEW Filed Trademark For ‘King Of Harts’

The real reason All Elite Wrestling (AEW) filed to trademark “King of Harts” back in July has now been revealed.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported last week that this was originally going to be the name of the recently announced Owen Hart Cup Tournament.

However, the Observer has now corrected that, and said Tony Khan always had the idea of either the Owen Hart Cup (which is what was decided on), or ‘The Owen’ (which is the name of the trophy).

The Observer now reports that AEW filed to trademark King of Harts simply to get the name secured, and then give it to Martha Hart as a gift.

According to the United States Patent & Trademark Office database, the filing is still a live application and is awaiting examination. It was filed with the following description back in July:

Educational and entertainment services, namely, a continuing program about wrestling accessible by radio, television, satellite, audio, video and computer networks; Entertainment services in the nature of development, creation, production, distribution, and post-production of wrestling programs and wrestling multimedia entertainment event content; Entertainment services in the nature of live wrestling performances; Entertainment services in the nature of production of wrestling programs and wrestling multimedia entertainment event content; Entertainment services, namely, live appearances by a wrestler or group of wrestlers; Entertainment services, namely, production and distribution of ongoing television programs in the field of wrestling; Entertainment services, namely, providing ongoing webisodes featuring wrestling via a global computer network; Entertainment services, namely, televised appearances by a wrestler or group of wrestlers; Entertainment services, namely, an ongoing multimedia program featuring wrestling distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; Entertainment services, namely, an ongoing series featuring wrestling provided through a global computer network; Providing a website featuring entertainment information in the fields of wrestling; Providing an Internet website portal featuring entertainment news and information specifically in the field of wrestling; Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network
