Keith Lee Files for Trademark of his own Name
Way back in 2019, WWE filed a trademark on Keith Lee, but it was put on hold as WWE didn’t submit a consent form signed by Lee to secure it. On July 30, the USPTO then sent a letter to WWE noting that if the consent form wasn’t sent in by December 30, the application would be abandoned. Heel by Nature reports that Lee himself has filed to trademark his ring name on December 18, which could cause a headache for WWE. Lee provided a consent form for his own filing.
The trademark is for: “IC 041. US 100 101 107.
