We have previously reported that Lucha Underground, which is partly owned by AAA has been targeting Pentagon Jr. and suing him for the right to use his name since his departure from AAA last month.

Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that there is another chapter to this tumultuous relationship between the two. Pentagon Jr. has been forced to change his ring-name to “Penta el Zero M” after he cut ties but his former employer keeps coming at him.

Penta 0M and Rey Fenix are both individuals who have recently cut ties from the popular Mexican wrestling promotion, AAA, and they have been booked to face each other in a match with the Pacific Coast Wrestling promotion.

Penta has a long history with PCW including defending their Heavyweight Title against Rob Van Dam last year in Torrance, California.

Attorneys from AAA have threatened legal action against PCW claiming that they are “the legitimate owner of the intellectual property related to the name, characteristics, characters, and designs of ‘Fenix’, ‘Rey Fenix’, ‘Pentagon Jr’, and ‘Penta 0M’ […] At the light of the above, we are sending you this communication requesting you to cease and refrain from the unauthorized and misuse of the intellectual property and also please avoid to hire any person that uses such intellectual property or any other confusingly similar.”

PCW didn’t let this sit too well with them and hasn’t taken this legal threat lightly. They replied with a letter in turn stating, “While we thank you for your concern with making sure that we are not going to use the names of performers or characters legally owned by your client, we can assure you that we are only promoting performers by names that either the performers control themselves or which no entity controls as of this date.”

The fact is that not only did PCW refrain from using “Penagon Jr. and Fenix” in their promotional material but “Rey Fenix” filed for a trademark on his name last year. Rumors are also circulating that there is a fair amount of confidence that “Penta 0M” will retain the right to the use of his name after his former employers suit is denied during a fight in court.
