WWE continues to protect their intellectual property. After filing trademarks on a handful of WWE stars’ nicknames last week, they filed for another one just a day later. This time it is for Randy Orton’s nickname, “Legend Killer”.
Here is the description given for the trademark filed on November 18:

G & S: 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
Randy Orton has been using the Legend Killer persona for over 15 years. Although the name has come and gone over the years, the character made a strong return in 2020. As Orton injured Edge earlier this year, he turned his attention to the likes of Christian, Big Show, Ric Flair, and Shawn Michaels.
