ProWrestlingSheet.com has revealed that Ryback appears to be in a trademark battle with WWE over the term “The Big Guy.”

According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Ryback (real name Ryan Reeves) filed for the trademark on October 29th, 2015 with the following Goods and Services description:

Conducting entertainment exhibitions in the nature of performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Entertainment information; Entertainment services, namely, personal appearances by a sports celebrity

As it turns out, WWE filed for the same trademark three months later on January 4th, 2016 with the following Goods and Services description:

Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by professional wrestlers and entertainers rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; Providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; Providing a website in the field of sports entertainment; Fan club services; Organizing and staging social entertainment events with fan club members; Providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; Online journals, namely, blogs, in the fields of sports entertainment

Reeves’ entry shows that his trademark filing was published for opposition today. This means that anyone has a 30-day period to challenge it. It’s possible Ryback did this himself but it’s also possible that WWE’s legal team had the USPTO publish the opposition so the company could challenge the filing.

Well Ryback created it while working for WWE so WWE will probably win the trademark sadly.

It's so annoying that WWE feels like it has to own everything.
