Zack Ryder may be gone from the WWE, but that hasn’t stopped the superstar from trying to claim some of his nicknames after his departure. According to a report from Heel By Nature, Ryder has filed two trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark office.

From the looks of the report, Ryder has filed trademarks for the terms “Internet Champion” and “Alwayz Ready.” The trademarks were filed under two classes, which include merchandise and “entertainment services by a professional wrestler and sports entertainment personality”.

Ryder has a long history of referring to himself as the “Internet Champion,” ever since he debuted the championship on his YouTube show, with the belt even appearing during actual WWE shows. Whether or not Ryder will be granted the trademarks has yet to be seen, but it does show that Ryder is at least looking to begin thinking about marketing himself with some of his most iconic names.
