USPTO Rejects Cody Rhodes' Attempt to Trademark the Name "Dusty Rhodes"

According to a report from ProWrestlingSheet.com, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has rejected Cody Rhodes' request to trademark his late father's ring name of "Dusty Rhodes" due to Cody's brother Dustin having a legal trademark over his own ring name of "Dustin Rhodes".

Here is the official statement from the USPTO:

Here, the marks share one term, “RHODES”, and a highly similar term “DUSTY/DUSTIN”, and share the same overall commercial impression of that of a surname and given name, respectively. Given the high similarity in appearance, sound, and meaning of the marks, the marks are confusingly similar.

Cody's lawyer reportedly informed Pro Wrestling Sheet that he feels confident that the issue will be resolved.
