PWInsider posted:

The United States Patent and Trademark Office partially suspended Bruce Tharpe's registration of the National Wrestling Alliance trademark (which was filed for back in March after it expired in December 2016) on 6/4 due to "a likelihood of confusion with a registered mark and under Trademark Act Sections 1 and 45 for failure to show the applied-for mark in use in commerce with any of the specified goods in Class 25. The applicant was also informed that the marks in two pending applications present a potential bar to registration under Section 2(d), if registered. In addition, applicant was required to provide an amended definite identification of goods, provide information relevant to examination under 37 C.F.R. §2.61(b), clarify the mark description, provide clarification regarding the claimed dates of first use, and provide clarification regarding the applicant’s claim of concurrent use."

It appears based on the ruling that the issue at play is related to merchandising of the NWA brand, specifically that the NWA name may come into conflict with other existing applications featuring a similar brand name and that Tharpe, in his application, did not show adequate proof that the brand was currently being used in commerce, i.e. was actually being sold.

PWInsider.com reported several weeks ago that the Billy Corgan purchase of the NWA brand was "in jeopardy" according to numerous sources but has learned that since then, the Corgan and Tharpe sides have continued discussions.

Whether this suspension of the NWA trademark has any bearing on the Corgan purchase plans remains to be seen.

I don't know what is funnier

That no one knows who owns the NWA

or that it may have be unclear for years and the NWA was so meaningless that no one noticed

Option C is nobody noticing until Smashing Pumpkins Guy decided he wanted to own a wrestling company and this was his second choice

NWA On Demand streaming service shutting down (by-product of Corgan's buying Tharpe's interest in the Paul Boesch Houston territory library. Library ownership stays with the Boesch family but Corgan will have ability to control the library going forward)
All member promotions with licenses to use the NWA initials and branding under the company's Bruce Tharpe ownership end the day before. Going forward as of 10/1, the NWA will be whatever Corgan and Lagana lead it to be

Cody winning the NWA title at All In would probably be a better moment if he was taking it off anybody who wasn't Magnus

That's why they should do the right thing for the NWA, the right thing for the title, and the right thing for Cody's plan to get 10,000 attendants, and have Magnus drop the belt to Jocephus so we can have the #bigmoney match of Cody/Jocephus. Watch the tickets sail into paying customer hands

In my defense; I have absolutely no idea who Cauvaro is.

The story of him and the other Bengals fans on the forum is they finally had a chance of seeing something relevant happen with their team ever (Get Playoff Win and do it vs division rival Steelers), the team literally blew it with two minutes left when their two star players wouldn't stop committing penalties, and it gifted the other team a winning FG

Thread was incredible as it happened and said Bengals fans basically lost their minds. One ranted about how he was actually glad they lost, another went down conspiracy theories about how everything was fixed because no way could that happen, a third I believe immediately switched fandoms to another team simply because it was literally lighter on his heart and blood pressure, and Cavauro went full andey and did comedy posts to cope. None ever recovered, that was literal years ago

All the doubling down of the "10 pounds of gold" phrasing was worth it for the BTE gag where Marty Scurll talked a lot of poo poo about how tough and strong juniors are too, Magnus agreed completely and did the honorable thing of letting Marty hold the NWA title, and Marty immediately nearly collapsed when the heavy thing was placed on his hands
