As is becoming a theme of late, WWE has filed for some new trademarks, and this time it’s to lock down some new ring names.
As per Fightful, WWE filed for “Ashante Adonis” and “Desmond Troy”.
Ashante Adonis – more specifically Ashante “Thee” Adonis, the “Thee” must be important – is the new name of Tehuti Miles which he debuted this past Tuesday on NXT then used Friday on 205 Live. He’s been a regular on 205 in recent months but only just got the new name this week.
Desmond Troy is a name that hasn’t been used by anyone yet, so place your bets.
The names were filed under the following purpose:
