So far 2021 has been a year of ups and downs for Keith Lee, but he recently returned to TV with his new “Bearcat” nickname. The name has been met with a mixed reception from fans, but it doesn’t look like WWE has plans to do away with it anytime soon.
On September 28 WWE filed to trademark “Bearcat” with the USPTO and the full description reads as follows:
“Mark For: BEARCAT trademark registration is intended to cover the categories of entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information; fan club services, namely, organizing sporting events in the field of wrestling for wrestling fan club members; organizing social entertainment events for entertainment purposes for wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the field of sports entertainment.”
Keith Lee was drafted to Monday Night Raw during the first night of the WWE Draft on Friday. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
