Pro Wrestling Since 1997


Update on WWE trademarks

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.

    Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but this whole thing is a BUSINESS.

    If one of the wrestlers… in this case, Zack Ryder… is continuously in the top 10 merchandise-wise… wouldn’t be a good frickin’ idea to PUSH THE HELL OUT OF HIM?!

  2. McMahon says:

    New Age Outlaws were consistently some of the top merchandise sellers back in the day and we all saw what happened when either of them got a singles push. Ryder is being used consistently on TV and he’s actually getting involved in stuff. One step at a time. Although I would love me a Ryder US title reign.

    And I’m surprised by the Ryback news, mostly because that character was pretty much the Terminator. Guess he’ll be Ryback in name only (if anything).

    True, but when they were a team, that is when their merchandise sold. I never saw any big call on “Mr. Ass” or “Road Dogg” shirts. They were one of the best teams of the 90’s, because they meshed so well.

    In this case, Ryder is beating out several, pushed to the moon nobodies who the WWE would rather have on top… instead of the guy making them money.

    Why push him if he doesn’t need a push to be a top seller?

  5. Meh says:

    Ryder a fad and is average in the ring. He will eventually stop making money once people get bored with him and thus stop ryding him.

  6. Cody T. says:

    Ryder isn’t going to be able to sell Broski shirts once WWE gives him the boot like other misused talents? Are you serious bro?
