Update on WWE trademarks
Oct 26, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
The company recently filed a trademark for Zack Ryder’s “Broski” catchphrase to sell branded goods. Ryder is currently among the Top 10 best sellers of merchandise in the company. They have also trademarked the name “Ryback” which was the name Ship Sheffield (Ryan Reeves) once used in Florida Championship Wrestling. Sheffield has been sidelined for several months after breaking his ankle during a live event in Hawaii.
