Pat Buck Ascends in AEW with New Trademark Filing

AEW’s backstage dynamo, Pat Buck, is making headlines again. On August 1st, Buck showcased his forward-thinking approach by filing a trademark for his name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This strategic move underlines his growing influence both inside and outside the squared circle.

Before solidifying his presence in AEW, Pat Buck carved a niche for himself in WWE. His multifaceted roles spanned from being a producer to working diligently in Talent Relations. Buck wasn't just behind the curtains; he was the bridge between WWE and the world of independent wrestling.

He took on the pivotal role of liaising between the company and indie talents, ensuring the latter got opportunities to shine as extras. Moreover, with an eye for fresh talent, Buck actively scouted and recommended potential signings, cementing his position as a key backstage figure.

However, the winds of change blew swiftly for Buck. The day after the grandeur of WrestleMania, he decided to resign from WWE, marking the end of his journey that began in 2019. But as one chapter closed, another opened. In April 2022, Buck signed with AEW, a decision that saw him climb the corporate ladder swiftly, gaining recognition for his expertise.

Buck's Expanding Brand Horizons

The recently filed trademark offers a comprehensive description, reflecting Buck’s versatility. It encompasses a range of categories, including "entertainment services, wrestling exhibitions, celebrity personal appearance services, online newsletters, blogs in sports entertainment, merchandise like shirts, hats, jerseys, toys, and even downloadable content like ring tones." Furthermore, the trademark hints at Buck’s potential ventures into music, with mentions of "live performances by a musical artist, downloadable musical sound recordings, and even beverage ware." In essence, this filing is not just a legal formality.

It's a testament to Pat Buck's vision for his brand, encapsulating his endeavors in the world of wrestling, entertainment, and potentially, music. As AEW continues to thrive, Pat Buck’s influence, fortified by this trademark, is set to expand.

Fans and industry insiders alike will be eagerly watching his next moves, as he continues to redefine his role in the ever-evolving world of sports entertainment.
