According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), WWE has filed a trademark related to a notable premium live event.
On November 2, WWE filed a new application to trademark the words ‘TLC: TABLES, LADDERS & CHAIRS’. According to the filing, the trademark is intended to cover use with merchandising.
With the following details filing:
Clothing, that is, tops, shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, hoodies; outerwear, ie coats; Bottoms, pants, shorts, underwear, dresses, pajamas, lingerie, clothing ties, scarves, gloves, swimwear; Halloween and masquerade costumes; footwear, ie boots, sneakers, slippers, flip flops, boots; headwear, that is, hats, caps; wrist band; Prayer; championship trophy belt
WWE still has a TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs trademark live for ‘Entertainment Services’. Application for this specific trademark was filed in 2009.
Following reports that WWE plans to eliminate the annual Hell in a Cell premium live event because they do not want to shoehorn bet matches into booking plans, many speculated that the TLC special would also be on the chopping block.
WWE last held a TLC event in 2020, with the planned 2021 show being canceled in favor of the new WWE Divas January 1, 2022 show.
At the time of writing, WWE does not have a TLC schedule scheduled for the end of 2022. It was initially reported that WWE planned to hold a TLC event in Saudi Arabia, however that ultimately did not happen.
Survivor Series will be followed by a notable premium live event gap: WarGames on November 26, with the next special expected to be the January 28, 2023 Royal Rumble event, following the cancellation of WWE Day 1 2023 reported.
