Impact Wrestling star EC3 has filed documents in an attempt to legally own his character’s name.
EC3 filed trademark documents last week which state he wants to use the name for “Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibits and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer; Entertainment services in the nature of live visual and audio performances by an actor.”
The documents also note that he wants to use the name for “conducting fitness classes.”
Sources tell Pro Wrestling Sheet that Impact’s recent public statements about allowing wrestlers to own their characters in the future gave Ethan Carter a final push to lock the name down.
As previously reported, Ed Nordholm recently stated they’d be amending talent agreements to allow Impact wrestlers to use their personas after leaving the company. Executive Vice Presidents Don Callis and Scott D’Amore have reiterated this during recent interviews.
If they stay true to their word, the wrestler will likely own the name in the next few months.
