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
  • 10 Pounds Of Gold

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.

Katsuyori Shibata Looking To Get Medically Cleared To Return To The Ring

Katsuyori Shibata is looking to get cleared to step into a ring once again.

According to Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Shibata is looking to get medically cleared following his recent appearance on the final night of the G1 Climax tournament.

“Katsuyori Shibata, he hasn’t been cleared, but he will be attempting to get cleared,” Meltzer stated. “He trains with his students, but the issue in question is whether it can ever be healthy for him to take head shots, and if he were to return as Katsuyori Shibata, can they work around that issue within the New Japan style.”

In 2017, Shibata collapsed backstage after a match with Kazuchika Okada at Sakura Genesis. The injury was caused by Shibata’s use of a headbutt, which he had been doing regularly since the prior year. Following his collapse, he was rushed to hopsital, where he was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma, which required emergency surgery. This caused Shibata to experience paralysis on one half of his body, and many to believe he would never wrestle again.

Following his recovery, Shibata was appointed head coach of New Japan Pro Wrestling’s dojo in Los Angeles, CA.

Shibata made a surprise appearance at the finals of the G1 Climax tournament earlier this month. Although he was not medically cleared to compete, he was involved in an angle with The Bullet Club, where he was beatdown.
