Last August 3rd, All Elite Wrestling filed to trademark the “AEW Dark: Elevation” term with the USPTO (the United States Patent and Trademark Office) under the categories of educational and entertainment services. AEW Dark: Elevation is one of All Elite Wrestling’s weekly television series that premiered last March 15th, 2021 and it airs every Monday night at 7PM ET on AEW’s official YouTube channel with Tony Schiavone and Paul Wight as the commentators.
Similar to AEW Dark, AEW Dark: Elevation was created as a platform to establish younger stars as they are paired with the veterans in the business as well as with the top independent wrestlers because it is believed that AEW Dark already has too many talents and matches being shown.
Below is the use description AEW submitted to the USPTO:
“Educational and entertainment services, namely, a continuing program about wrestling accessible by means of web-based applications, mobile phone applications, and computer networks; Entertainment services in the nature of development, creation, production, distribution, and post-production of multimedia entertainment content featuring wrestling; Entertainment services in the nature of live wrestling performances; Entertainment services in the nature of production of multimedia entertainment content featuring wrestling; Entertainment services, namely, providing ongoing webisodes featuring wrestling via a global computer network; Entertainment services, namely, an ongoing multimedia program featuring wrestling distributed via various platforms across multiple forms of transmission media; Entertainment services, namely, an ongoing series featuring wrestling provided through a global computer network.”
