WWE Files Trademark For Latest New Ring Name WWE

WWE has filed to trademark it’s latest ring name on October 13, per the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

One of the reasons behind the many sudden name changes in the company was done with the idea of WWE owning the trademarks for their characters’ names.

While the rule has seemingly been softly lifted since the change in regime, with stars such as Tommaso Ciampa, Austin Theory and Matt Riddle being given their full names back, WWE still looks to trademark the new names for their NXT stars, and the latest has been revealed.

Per the USPTO, the latest ring name trademarked by WWE is ‘Lyra Valkyria’.

It is not yet known who the name is set to be used for, but the ‘Valkyria’ surname is similar to that of former NXT UK star Aoife Valkyrie, who has yet to reappear on WWE television since her injury last year.

The following description accompanied the trademark filing:

Mark For: LYRA VALKYRIA™ trademark registration is intended to cover the categories of entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information; fan club services, namely, organizing sporting events in the field of wrestling for wrestling fan club members; organizing social entertainment events for entertainment purposes for wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the field of sports entertainment.
