AEW's Chris Jericho Files To Trademark Former Nickname
Le Champion has quite the list of aliases
Former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho has registered to trademark one of his old nicknames.
The man known as The Demo God, Le Champion, Y2J, The Painmaker, and many others has registered for the trademark ‘Corazon de Leon’ registering the application on February 18.
Jericho used the Corazon de Leon handle while wrestling in Mexico for CMLL, before using the anglicised Lion Heart nickname while wrestling in Japan, as well as during his time in ECW and WCW.
Jericho listed the First Use and First Use In Commerce dates as 1993. The following use description was included with the USPTO (United States Patent & Trademark Office) filing:
“IC 041. US 100 101 107. G & S: Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Entertainment services, namely, live appearances by a professional wrestling and sports entertainment personality; Entertainment services, namely, personal appearances by a professional wrestler and sports entertainment personality; Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; Providing online interviews featuring a professional wrestler and sports entertainer in the field of professional wrestling and sports entertainment for entertainment purposes. FIRST USE: 19930000. FIRST USE IN COMMERCE: 19930000”
There’s no word on if Jericho plans to use the Corizon de Leon or Lion Heart nicknames in AEW if the trademark application is successful.
