Sasha Banks Files Several Trademarks Hinting At Next Step WWE

A WWE name who is rumored to be returning has filed several new trademarks that may signal their next career move.

Mercedes Kaestner-Varnado, AKA Sasha Banks, has had several trademarks filed on the behalf of her company, Soulnado, Inc, which was formed in August 2022, by attorney Michael Dockins, who handles trademarks for a number of pro wrestling names.

The trademarks filed on November 10 were for the following:

Mercedes Mone’

Mone’ Talks

Bank Mone’

Statement Maker

The filed trademarks are not wrestling related, rather, they have been filed for purposes including  clothing, jewelry and decals.

The trademarks cover filings for the following goods and services:

G & S: Jewelry; Jewelry and imitation jewelry; Pins being jewelry

G & S: Decals; Stickers; Posters made of paper; Stickers; Collectable printed trading cards; Collectible printed trading cards; Pictures in the nature of printed photographs; Printed post cards; Printed postcards; Printed posters

The trademarks notably play on the wording of Sasha Banks’ ‘The Boss’ gimmick and finisher, the Bank Statement.

These filings signal Sasha Banks’ next step outside of the ring.

The Boss has not been seen on WWE since walking out backstage with Naomi during the May 16 episode of WWE Raw, vacating the Women’s Tag Team Championship in the process.

It does not mean a potential return is ruled out, however, as recently, Banks was seen training with Mexican wrestling legend Juventud Guerrera in Mexico, further fuelling speculation of a return under Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque’s new regime.
