WWE Files To Trademark ‘Skull King’ & ‘Next In Line’

On December 1, WWE filed applications to trademark ‘SKULL KING’ and ‘NEXT IN LINE’

Skull King was a nickname used by Triple H, who is currently recovering from a reportedly serious cardiac event he suffered in September. The USPTO filing indicates that WWE intends to use the phrase for ‘entertainment services’ namely wrestling exhibitions.

‘Next In Line’ is a term WWE has been using in reference to the new NIL (name, image and likeness) program for collegiate athletes. The newly announced program  will allow WWE to recruit and develop future performers through collaborative partnerships with college athletes.
