As per the report, the promotion were denied by The United States Patent and Trademark Office who went on to cancel the filing in October citing that WWE had failed to comply with the request for correct documentation.
The USPTO also had several issues and concerns with the verbiage WWE had used in their filing. The billion dollar company now have until December 2 to appeal. Along with that appeal, they must provide reasoning as to why they did not comply with the documentation request and attain the signature of Brock Lesnar.
Requiring the trademark for entertainment purposes, namely to continue selling his merchandise on their WWE Shop, the promotion will not be able to sell items pertaining to the talent going forward should they fail to secure the rights.
Should that happen, it will be the third loss concerning the star this year. Brock Lesnar previously had two contracts with WWE for in-ring performance and merchandise, both of which expired earlier this year.
This isn’t the first time WWE have been denied access to Brock Lesnar and were turned down once in 2016 and again earlier this year when they failed to provide written consent from the man himself.
The last time Brock Lesnar was inside a WWE ring was at WrestleMania 36 when he lost the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre.
