Cody Files To Trademark “Dusty Rhodes”

Cody has applied to trademark the name "Dusty Rhodes"

Cody Runnels has been busy with the US Patent and Trademark office recently. Last week, Cody applied to trademark the terms “American Nightmare” and “the American Dream”. On Thursday, March 14th, Cody filed documents looking to trademark the in-ring name of his father’s, “Dusty Rhodes”.

The day before Cody filed several trademarks, Marty Lunde filed to trademark his in-ring name of Arn Anderson. On March 10th, a company named Toot Toot LLC applied to trademark the term “4 Horsemen” for wrestling purposes. The creatively named company happens to share an address with 1st Family Mortgage in Alabama, the company features Starrcast promoter Conrad Thompson as its President.

Cody On Not Being Able To Use Name “Cody Rhodes”

Many fans were upset WWE chose not to allow Cody to use the last name Rhodes upon his exit from the company in 2016. Cody told SI.com, however, that he’s grown to appreciate going by just his first name.

“I’ll tell you this, and I’ve not told anyone this, but I don’t mind that WWE took away my last name. Deep down, in my bones, I definitely want it back – and I have plans to get it back – but there is something to being Cody. The longer I don’t have a last name, the more I’m OK with it.”
