‘Stone Cold’ makes a special guest appearance for RAW in MSG.

Last night we witnessed the ‘go-home’ episode of Monday night RAW before Clash of Champions this Sunday.

RAW returned to the famous Madison Square Garden arena.

This upcoming November would’ve made ten years since WWE RAW aired live in the MSG arena.

Stone Cold Opens RAW

‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin hosts the opening segment in RAW’s return to the “World’s Most Famous Arena”.

Universal Champion, Seth Rollins, and his challenger, Braun Strowman, exchange heated words.

For instance, they would sign off on their world title match en route to Clash of Champions.

However, The OC led by WWE United States Champion, AJ Styles, would confront Austin, Rollins, and Strowman.

The RAW Tag Team Champions puts their differences aside to dismantle The OC.

Styles would receive a surprising ‘Stunner’ from Austin to kickoff RAW at a hot start.

Despite being rattled, the ‘Phenomenal One’ would go onto wrestle Cedric Alexander.

They fought to a disqualification but due to interference from The OC.

Alexander would eventually gain help from The Viking Raiders to fend of The OC, and as a result, a newfound alliance is formed.

Lynch and Flair versus Banks and Bayley

Secondly, the Four Horsewomen would go onto clash in tag team action.

Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair defeats Sasha Banks and Bayley, following a ‘Natural Selection’ by Flair.

Rey Mysterio versus Gran Metalik

Thirdly, we witness Rey Mysterio pick up a win against fellow luchador, Gran Metalik.

Above all, this is a fast-paced match packed with lucha libre action.

WWE KOTR Semi-final Match

Baron Corbin defeats Samoe Joe and Ricochet in a Triple Threat RAW Semi-final match in the King of the Ring Tournament.

‘The Constable’ pins Joe after taking advantage of Ricochet’s ariel assaults.

Meanwhile, on SmackDown’s ‘go-home’ show today, Elias and Chad Gable will wrestle in the other semi-final match.

As a result at Clash of Champions, Baron Corbin will face the winner of SmackDown’s match to determine the 2019 King of the Ring.

After that, Natalya locks the ‘Sharpshooter’ on Lacey Evans in their match.

As a result, Natalya wins via submission by way of tap out.

Bray Wyatt

‘The Eater of Worlds’ shows the WWE Universe his “healing” side.

As the host of the Firefly Fun House, Wyatt promotes The Fiend persona as someone who never forgets the past.

WWE Main Event Tag Team Action

In conclusion, Seth Rollins, Cedric Alexander, Braun Strowman and The Viking Raiders defeat AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, Dolph Ziggler, and The OC.

As the finish to the match, Alexander scores a major upset by pinning the former two-time WWE Champion, AJ Styles.

As a result, Alexander should be given a future US title match.

In short, ‘The Texas Rattlesnake’ would come back out to the ring, next to the victors, and celebrate with beers to close the show.

10:30 PM ET – UPDATE: Cody Rhodes has filed a response through his legal counsel indicating why he should be able to own the “Bash At The Beach” trademark.

The United States Trademark office refused the initial trademark due to the similarities with WWE’s “The Bash” trademark.

Cody’s legal team provided several other trademarks using the words “BASH” indicating it won’t cause confusion.

The intiial refusal was based on the fact that both words used “BASH” and are wrestling services.

Read the full response below.

Bash At The Beach Trademark In Limbo

Cody Rhodes trademark for “Bash At The Beach” has been initially refused by the United States Trademark Office.

HeelByNature.com has obtained trademark filings which outline the refusal and next steps needed for Cody to be approved of the trademark.

The USPTO issued refusal order to Cody’s legal representative Michael Dockens of Shumaker Loop & Kendrickon 5/20/19.

The reasoning behind the refusal was “likelihood of confusion” with WWE’s trademark “The Bash”.

United States Trademark Filings indicate the following: 

Here, the dominant portion of the registrant’s mark, “BASH” is the first and dominant term of the applied-for mark BASH AT THE BEACH. The marks sound similar and have a similar meaning when viewed in the context of the wrestling services to which they relate.

Although applicant’s mark has been refused registration, applicant may respond to the refusal(s) by submitting evidence and arguments in support of registration.

Cody’s legal team had 6 months from the refusal order to submit proper evidence to support the registration of the trademark. The cutoff date for them to send in proper documentation was 11/20/19. It’s not known if Cody’s legal team has submitted those documents.

WWE initially registered the trademark for “The Bash” in 2009. The application was renewed in 2011 The filing was renewed in 2018 for an additional 10 years.

Yesterday, Cody made post indicating he may be heading to court. “Sounds like I’ll be going to court soon, time to go suit shopping”

Below are the documents obtained by HeelByNature.com that outlines the refusal order issued by the United States Trademark Office.

 

All Elite Wrestling plans to use the “Bash At The Beach” name for two Dynamite events on 1/15/20 and 1/22/20.
