Windham Rotunda files new ‘Wyatt’ themed trademark for pro wrestling
Another sign that Windham Rotunda, better known as Bray Wyatt, is returning to professional wrestling has emerged; this time, in the form of a trademark registration.
According to USTPO (United States Patent and Trademark Office)Rotunda trademarked “Wyatt 6” on June 21, 2022. The trademark’s purposes cite “entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer” and wares as ” Hats; Shirts; Sweatshirts; Bandanas; Hoodies.” You can see the full story below:
-Entertainment in the form of wrestling competitions; entertainment services in the nature of live visual and audio performances by an actor; entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; entertainment services, namely, live appearances by a professional wrestler, sports entertainment personality and actor; entertainment services, namely, personal appearances by a professional wrestler, sports entertainment personality and actor; entertainment services, namely, television appearances by a professional wrestler, sports entertainment personality and actor; Personal appearances by an actor as a spokesperson for entertainment and educational purposes; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; Providing online interviews featuring professional wrestlers, sports entertainment personalities and actors in the field of professional wrestling and sports entertainment for entertainment purposes.
– Hats; Shirts; sweatshirts; bandanas; Hoodies.
Wyatt was released from his WWE contract on July 31, 2021, after more than twelve years with the company. His final match came on the first night of WrestleMania 37, suffering a loss at the hands of Randy Orton with the help of his former ally, Alexa Bliss. Reports said he was originally expected to win the match against Orton at WrestleMania, but the finish was changed to the same weekend as the event.
Since leaving, Rotunda has been working on a horror film project with special effects artist Jason Baker. He basically stayed away from the realm of professional wrestling with the exception of a few convention signing appearances like “WrestleCon” during WrestleMania 38 weekend in Dallas, Texas.
Speculation surrounding Rotunda’s return to the squared circle began when he posted a series of tweets days before the WWE Hell in a Cell Premium Live event. 6 days after the broadcast, Wyatt changed his Twitter name to the aforementioned trademark title, “Wyatt 6”. This naturally led fans to predict that he would be back in 6 days at an event he made somewhat infamous due to a slammed match against Seth Rollins years before: Hell in a Cell. Although, as we know now, that ultimately didn’t happen, and we’re still waiting for the return of Bray Wyatt, or The Fiend, or Wyatt 6, or any version of the returning WWE star. in professional wrestling.
Additionally, Rotunda changed his profile picture to one that appears to be an upturned moth with red squiggles covering his face, the same face he shares with The Fiend.
“Everything good that happened to me first came a period of horrible suffering. I never ask why, I just wait for the hard part to end. I was chosen for some reason. And I have shit to do. It doesn’t hurt anymore, it burns. I am ready now. I’m tired of watching. Tired of hearing uninteresting clowns speculate on how I’ll be perceived. Tired of hearing about my greed, my desire questioned. Where and when I decide to come back, I’ll remind everyone why they know my name. Still. And even. Believe in me. #I found it“. Patience. It’s almost time,” Wyatt wrote on May 31.
Although he could still appear with All Elite Wrestling or another wrestling promotion, Rotunda set “a very high asking price” to return to wrestling, leading to the collapse of previous talks with AEW. Rotunda reportedly earned over $4 million a year with the combination of a $3 million contract and bonus/product sales prior to release. Before being laid off by the company, Wyatt would have been the third highest earner in WWE behind Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.
