WWE Souring on Drew McIntyre?, NXT Trademarks Update

Nick Paglino

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that original creative plans called for WWE Smackdown star Drew McIntyre to continue his undefeated streak all the way until he received a run with the World Title. However, it’s now being reported that McIntyre has fallen out of favor with several WWE officials as he is said to be a high maintenance performer and he is not getting over as a heel the way WWE had initially hoped. As a result of this, the World Title run went to Jack Swagger instead of McIntyre.

USPTO.gov is showing that WWE has in fact registered and trade marked the names of all 8 rookies from the first season of NXT, which contradicts the Wrestling Observer report that only Otunga, Barrett and Bryan had been trade marked.
