WWE Trademarks NXT Names, Including Typo


Wrestling INC. is reporting that WWE has trademarked several names ahead of WWE NXT’s debut on the USA Network. WWE trademarked The Forgotten Sons, Marina Shafir, Jessamyn Duke, Taynara, Vanessa Borne, Xia Li, & Dakota Kai.

WWE also reportedly trademarked “Lo Shirai,” which is likely a typo of the name Io Shirai. There is no word on whether WWE made the error, or if the error was a miscommunication with the trademark office. It is also possible this was intentional, trademarking the typo as a way to cut off bootleg merchandise.
