Former WWE Star Ryback Considering Suing Ezekiel Elliott For Stealing His Catchphrase (VIDEO)
Former WWE star Ryback is seriously considering taking legal action towards Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott over his use of “Feed Me.”
He stated as much during Ryback TV where he spoke about the Dallas Cowboys running back using the catchphrase “feed me,” which is very close to “feed me more.” Ryback is considering seeing if a judge might feel the same way about things.
“It’s far too similar. You’re literally trying to latch onto somebody else’s brand and then take it and make it your own in the same exact thing. It’s like, come on, be a little bit more creative. He’s a wrestling fan. He got it from me – he 100 percent got it from me. I’ve already established it and own it. I think it’s just really, really low.”
“Everything’s documented timeline-wise. I think there’s zero chance in hell he gets it. But for whatever reason, if they have an attorney that’s able to pull strings, then I’ve simply got to oppose it. I’ll tie him up for years, so he better get a good tattoo artist to cover up that shitty tattoo on his stomach.”
Elliott recently revealed his “feed me” tattoo on his stomach as well.
“WWE originally applied for the Ryback trademark in 2011 and then renewed it back in 2019, which was three years after Ryback had departed from the company.
Reeves filed a petition with The United States Patent and Trademark Office in order to cancel the registration by WWE.
It should be noted that Reeves filed an application to gain ownership of the name in May 2019. As of this writing, he has yet to be granted ownership from the trademark office because of the legal proceedings between the two sides.”
