WWE has filed a new trademark.

WWE filed a trademark “WWE Rush” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on September 14 for its NIL (Names, Images, and Likeness for Student Athletes) program.

WWE formed the Next In Line program. With this program, the company has shifted the vision for its development system, NXT, as it has primarily recruited college athletes with no professional wrestling background. Here is the description of the trademark:
