According to the Heel By Nature portal, the Mexican wrestler Rey Fenix has not been able to register his name. As they have been able to report, the Mexican wrestler of All Elite Wrestling and Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide submitted an application to register the current name under which he competes in the United States without success.
Fenix submitted this request
in August 2020 with the support of the Masked Republic which represents various Mexican talents in the United States. However, the United States Patent and Trademark Office rejected the application, alleging similarities between an already registered trademark this precisely that of Fenix registered by the Lucha Libre FMV company.
Lucha Libre FMV is currently in a legal dispute with AAA where it seeks to win the rights to all the company’s profits outside of Mexico claiming property rights for AAA’s trademarks and patents in the US Among these patents in question are those of several AAA wrestlers, which were recorded during the pre-production stage of the show Lucha Underground in which Fenix was part.
At the moment the current legal lawsuit
between Lucha Libre FMV and AAA remains on hold, while Rey Fenix continues to use this name in AEW’s Dynamite shows and in his presentations in Mexico he has the possibility of using his original Fenix. At the moment, this has a period of 6 months to present documentation that supports your request otherwise, it will be considered withdrawn.
