WWE Looks to Supercharge Collectors with New Trademark
Internet speculation is running wild about WWE's newly filed trademark application for “WWE Supercharge." The application is filed as an “intent-to-use" application, which means it will be a forthcoming product.
But what is it? A new television show for the upcoming WWE Network? The name for said network? A new pay-per-view event? A new battery charger that kicks other battery chargers' butts?
Of note, one of the identified Goods and Services provided is “trading cards," so WWE card collectors should be on the lookout.
Information about the filing is provided below, so feel free to check it out and see if you can figure out what WWE Supercharge will be.
