- Giovanni "Romeo" Roselli, who was one half of the WWE tag team "The Heart Throbs," is one of just 30 trainers from around the world to have been selected to join Nike's Master Trainer team. The Nike Training Club recently re-launched its new training app and Roselli came together with fellow athletes and trainers, such as Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson, to develop workouts that are rooted in science and inspired by the world's best athletes.
- Speaking of Nike, we noted back in February that they started the process to oppose WWE's trademark of The Rock's "Just Bring It" slogan. Forbes reported today that WWE filed for the trademark on October 15, 2014 to use the slogan for selling clothing. The application was published for opposition last December, and Nike filed a notice stating that they had been using the "Just Do It" slogan long before WWE filed for "Just Bring It," and that the two marks are confusingly similar. Nike claimed that the registration of the "Just Bring It" mark will "dilute the 'Just Do It' mark by diminishing its distinctiveness and decreasing the ability of Nike to use it to identify and distinguish its goods and services."
WWE has approximately a month to reply to Nike's opposition.
