WWE has filed to trademark two terms related to NXT.

According to a report from Fightful, the company submitted filings on September 16 for "NXT Europe" and "NXT Global."

WWE announced last month that NXT Europe will launch in 2023 with NXT UK providing "the foundation" for the brand.

“NXT UK will end in its current form and serve as the foundation for a bigger, better NXT Europe,” WWE stated to Slam Wrestling. 

During an interview with Ariel Helwani earlier this month, Paul "Triple H" Levesque also spoke about wanting NXT Europe to serve as a model for similar brands across the globe.

"We're going to bring NXT Europe back in a bigger way than it ever was before. And the intent is, hopefully, if we are successful at it, to replicate that so it's NXT Europe, it's NXT India, it's NXT South Africa, it's NXT Mexico. Be able to take those products, put them around everywhere, and eventually, over time, to build brands in those markets locally and build World Cup scenarios around that," he said. 

The purposes of the trademarks are listed as:
