Conrad Thompson Files Trademarks For ‘Jim Crockett Promotions’ & ’10 Pounds Of Gold’
Earlier today we reported Conrad Thompson had filed a trademark for the name ‘Four Horsemen’ under his company Toot Toot, LLC.
Thompson also filed two additional trademarks this week under his Starrcast, LLC brand.

Jim Crockett Promotions was founded in 1931 as a regional promotion centered in The Carolinas and Virginia.
The company joined the NWA in 1952, and went through both regional and national expansions. In 1988 the company was sold to Ted Turner, and was eventually rebranded as World Championship Wrestling.
WWE purchased World Championship Wrestling in 2001, and acquired the Jim Crockett Promotions tape library.
The recent Goods & Services filing has the following description
Entertainment services, namely, providing webcasts in the field of professional wrestling and sports entertainment; Entertainment services, namely, storytelling; Entertainment services, namely, providing podcasts in the field of professional wrestling and sports entertainment; Entertainment services, namely, providing video podcasts in the field of professional wrestling and sports entertainment
The name “10 Pounds Of Gold” refers to the NWA Championship. The belt is commonly referred to as “The 10 Pounds of Gold” or the “Domed Globe” in reference to the protruding globe on the center plate.
The belt, and name is currently used by NWA, but had not been previously trademarked.
