Former WWE star Cesaro (Claudio Castagnoli) recently filed for a trademark for “CSRO.” He has retained the services of Michael E. Dockins, the same attorney who handles trademark issues for many pro wrestlers, including many wrestlers who work for AEW. This does not necessarily mean that he’s AEW-bound.
The “CSRO” filing might indicate that this will be the name he plans on using going forward. Castagnoli’s WWE contract recently expired after both sides were unable to agree to terms.
The trademark for “Antonio Cesaro” is owned by WWE so he won’t be allowed to use that name.
The filing states that it’s for the following:
“IC 025. US 022 039. G & S: Hats; Shirts; Socks; Sweatshirts; Hooded sweatshirts
IC 030. US 046. G & S: Coffee; Coffee beans; Coffee drinks; Ground coffee; Ground coffee beans
IC 041. US 100 101 107. G & S: Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Entertainment services, namely, live appearances by a a professional wrestler and sports entertainer; Entertainment services, namely, personal appearances by a professional wrestler and sports entertainment personality; Entertainment services, namely, televised appearances by a professional wrestling and sports entertainment personality; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; Providing online interviews featuring a professional wrestling and sports entertainment personality in the field of professional wrestling and sports entertainment for entertainment purposes”
