WWE Locks Down Trademark For Promising New NXT Star


AJ Francis is a former NFL player that was recently signed to WWE NXT and debuted in one of its Performance Center classes.

AJ Francis stars in the A&E series WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures as the historical expert. He travels with WWE Legends as they search for lost memorabilia from private collectors, museums and occasionally other WWE Legends.

We’ve learned at The Ringside Roster that WWE filed a trademark for ‘Top Dolla’ on April 27th. This is the name Francis is now expected to go by. The trademark applies to the following:

G & S: 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.

We’ll have to see when Francis shows up on NXT TV, but the fact that WWE has now locked down a name for him is certainly a good sign.
