WWE appears to be gearing up to introduce a new NXT star. The promotion filed a new trademark for a name ring. Usually, when this happens, the talent using the name either debuts soon after or has worked for the company before.

The latest ring name WWE is looking to own is “Lyra Valkyria”. According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the name has been reserved for use by WWE for entertainment services. The full description of the mark is as follows.

Trademark for: The LYRA VALKYRIA trademark registration is intended to cover categories of entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media , including television and radio, and via the Internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information; fan club services, namely, organizing sporting events in the field of wrestling for members of a wrestling fan club; organization of social entertainment events for entertainment purposes for members of a wrestling fan club; providing online newsletters in the field of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the field of sports entertainment.

It’s very interesting, because WWE had Taya Valkyrie around NXT as Franky Monet, but she was fired. Now it looks like WWE is giving the name Valkyrie, something Vince McMahon’s company made her change, another try.

The new trademark was filed on October 13. It’s unclear who the name will be used for, but it’s clearly a female talent. Fans will have to keep a close eye on NXT over the coming weeks. This is most likely a new wrestler given the connotations surrounding the name “Valkyrie”.
