Impact Continues To Pursue ‘Broken’ Trademark
Despite recent reports suggesting that Matt Hardy, WWE, and Impact Wrestling were close to an agreement on Matt’s use of his popular ‘Broken’ gimmick in WWE, it seems that is not the case.
On April 28, Impact filed the trademarks for the terms Broken Matt, Brother Nero, Vanguard1 and Broken Brilliance. Hardy had previously filed his own trademarks on March 1.
The news no doubt comes as a disappointment to fans desperate to see Hardy reintroduce his unique and brilliant Broken persona for the mainstream WWE audience as WWE will not forge ahead with the Broken characters until an agreement is reached with Impact giving them legal freedom to do so.
