Former IMPACT Wrestling and WWE superstar Matt Hardy has filed to trademark the “Broken” Matt Hardy name going forward, according to a report from Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet.

The report notes that according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Hardy filed for a trademark last week on “Broken Matt Hardy” for entertainment services, namely wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer.

There were reports last month that Matt Hardy’s deal gave IMPACT Wrestling the ability to profit off of anything that the company had already filmed having to do with his gimmick or any gimmick throughout the course of his contract, but that once his contract ended, he retains ownership of his name and characters, however IMPACT Wrestling, at least not publicly as of writing, are claiming that the current deal specifically states that they own all IP creations and if that is the case, could still oppose Hardy’s trademark filing.according to a report from Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet
