Travis Scott Enters WWE Ring For Cactus Jack Battle
Rodeo Rapper Travis Scott and WWE haven’t been seeing eye to eye lately. Lol! You get it? (The Rapper’s latest single with Quavo featuring Take Off is called Eye 2 Eye)
Anyway the two entities have been at odds over the Cactus Jack name. Scott has been using the name throughout his young career, but unquestionably the name belongs to WWE legend Mick Foley.
Foley has been using the name since before Travis Scott was born and more than likely influenced the Rapper. Influence and trademarks are two different things and apparently WWE abandoned the trademark in 2010.
WWE could block the trademark since they are the previous owners. However, Travis Scott may be able to trademark the name for music purposes only.
