Game Changer Wrestling applied to trademark the term “The Collective” on December 21st with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), with the filing made through Michael E. Dockins, who has been successful in helping All Elite Wrestling superstars and independent wrestling talents to secure their trademarks.

The filing for the trademark, which notes that its first use was in September 2018, reveals that it is for the following use, “G & S: Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Organizing conventions for professional wrestling and sports entertainment; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network.”

The filing is obviously in response to WWE recently applying to trademark the term themselves.
