FTR HIT WITH CEASE AND DESIST OVER POSSIBLE NAME
FTR, The team formerly known as The Revival has been served cease and desist papers over a name they say they were never going to use.
Last month the pair used the term “the revolt” in a trademark filing according to PWInsider. This sparked some backlash online after a tag team in the North Carolina indy scene, who have used the name for five years, loudly made their point.
PWInsider has now reported that the former WWE stars were served a ten-page cease and desist letter. Apparently, FTR’s lawyer had the following to say about the matter:
“First and foremost while our respective clients were acquaintances with one your clients and aware of his participation in the wrestling business, they are able and willing to testify under oath that they were not aware of and, at worst, have not recollection of ever knowing of your clients’ claimed rights in a REVOLT-inclusive trademark.”
“Secondly, our clients do not intend and have never intended to call themselves FEAR THE REVOLT. They have at all times and in every way made it clear that their tag team name would be FTR, and that FTR can and would mean different things depending on their storyline and creative. They are not responsible for and cannot be held responsible for dirt sheets and others incorrectly attributing to them a name other than the name they have chosen, FTR. In fact, when your client reached out to my clients ‘as friends’ to resolve this matter they were informed that the tag team name is, was, and will be FTR and not REVOLT or THE REVOLT or FEAR THE REVOLT.”
