WWE filed a trademark for “Chelsea Green” when they hired her last year. However, the company looks to keep the trademark with themselves even after they fired Green earlier this year.

WWE replied to Office Action this past week on August 5th, with a consent letter signed by Chelsea Green in which she had given permission to trademark her name, but it was dated back to November last year when Green was still employed.

Chelsea Green might file a lawsuit to settle the matter

Green took to Twitter hinting that she would seek help from the law to get back the trademark for her ‘birth given’ name.

“I never thought I’d be in a legal battle for my BIRTH GIVEN name, Going to discuss it on tomorrow’s episode of @GreenWEnvyPod.” Green wrote.

However, this never stops Green from using her real name under different promotions. Since her release in Aril this year, she has appeared in Ring of Honor (ROH) in the role of a commentator.

We know WWE owns trademarks for certain icons of their promotion; the company has a trademark over the names “John Cena” and “The Rock”.

However, many fans on the internet believe that a wrestler always knows what they’re signing for, and Green should not make a fuss about it.
