There has been an update on several trademarks that Cody Rhodes recently filed for, with some of them being rejected due to the similarity to WWE.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has given an initial refusal to the application of “Bash at the Bach” because of the likely confusion with WWE’s registered trademark for “The Bash” for an old pay-per-view.
Cody’s trademark application for “Dusty Rhodes” was also given an initial refusal by the USPTO because of the likely confusion to the “Dustin Rhodes” trademark that’s registered to his brother, Dustin Runnels.
However, they did approve Cody’s other trademark applications for Bunkhouse Stampede, BattleBowl, The American Nightmare, The American Dream, and The Prince of Wrestling. They will be published for opposition at a later date.
