Kevin Nash discusses how WWE acquired the rights to Hulk Hogan’s name with regards to “Hulk”, a character of Marvel Comics.
The WWE Hall of Famer clarified the trademark dispute side of the professional wrestling industry. He further delved into the complexities of trademarks, pointing out how some celebrities, like 16-time World Champion John Cena, have WWE trademark their real names. He spoke about this on his “Kliq This” podcast.
“It should only be able to be registered, but not trademarked. And then you would have to sign a merchandising agreement. I don’t see how they can trademark it.”
“It was Marvel, and [WWF] paid, I wanna say one hundred grand, to use the Hulk trademark.”Kevin Nash on Kliq This
