Mick Foley Files New Trademark

Cactus Jack Mick Foley

WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley has moved to file a trademark, as he looks to secure the rights to arguably his best-known wrestling character, Cactus Jack.

The Hardcore Legend filed to trademark Cactus Jack on February 18th according to the USPTO Trademark database. The filing says that Mick Foley is trademarking the name for use on merchandise, listed as particularly for hats, shirts, sweatshirts, as well as other items, and for general pro wrestling use.

Like many stars outside WWE Mick Foley currently sells his wares including Cactus Jack merchandise on Pro Wrestling Tees so it is more than likely the case that Foley is looking to prevent future difficulties rather than planning a sensational return to the ring as his most hardcore persona.

WWE previously held the Cactus Jack trademark before they abandoned the trademark in 2010. Although the company did raise objections when rapper Travis Scott tried to trademark the term in 2018 after launching Cactus Jack Records.

While Mick Foley was introduced to WWE audiences as Mankind when he joined the company in 1996, he was best known as Cactus Jack after spells using that name in WCW, ECW, and All Japan Pro Wrestling.

Foley did resurrect Cactus Jack a few times in WWE, most notably during his feuds with Triple H in 1997 and 2000, and as the partner of Chainsaw Charlie (Terry Funk) in the late nineties.
