WWE & GFW Assigned Trademark Attorneys For Matt & Jeff Hardy Cases

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 08/09/17


According to Pwinsider (via wrestlinginc.com), WWE’s applications for trademarks relating to Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy filed on June 19 were assigned to a trademark attorney on July 27. This means they’ll bypass the three-month wait period that applies to most applications. GFW applications for trademarks relating to the Hardys were filed on April 28 and were also assigned to a trademark attorney on July 27.

WWE’s application for Matt Hardy received an initial refusal due to potential confusion with the “Broken Matt Hardy” application, which was filed by Matt Hardy himself. All other actions will be frozen until Matt’s application is finalized; this also happened with GFW’s application.
