Starrcast files trademark for 'Southwest Championship Wrestling'

The date of the filing is listed as August 5, 2022.

Conrad Thompson's Starrcast LLC has filed to trademark the name, 'Southwest Championship Wrestling'

SCW was a promotion owned by Joe Blanchard and run out of San Antonio, Texas from 1978 to 1985. 

The purposes of the trademark are listed as "Entertainment in the nature of wrestling contests; Providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network" as well as goods and services such as, "Bandanas; Hats; Shirts; Sweatshirts; Hooded sweatshirts." 

The filings were submitted on August 5.

Earlier this week, Thompson teased that Ric Flair's Last Match was part of a "bigger master plan" while speaking on My World with Jeff Jarrett. 

"You and I talked about this over a year ago," Thompson said to Jarrett. "I said, 'no, I'm not doing wrestling, I'm not promoting wrestling, I'm not negotiating finishes, I don't want to be involved in the politics.' I like my lane but this opportunity presented itself. The real story that we're not talking about, we will tell you one day, but this is part of a bigger master plan and no it does not involve Ric Flair wrestling again but the entrepreneur brain kicked off and I saw an opportunity for Sunday and I said, 'if I don't do it, I'll wonder what if, so let's do it.' We rolled the dice, I couldn't be more tickled with the results." 

Last week, Booker T revealed on his Hall of Fame radio show that Thompson had approached him about having a match at Starrcast next year. 

"I was approached actually to have a final match next year at Starrcast. Harlem Heat’s final match, here in Texas. I said, ‘Hell no. We ain’t doing none of that.’ I just had a match a couple of weeks ago, my knee was killing me. I can only imagine what it’s going to feel like next year. Y’all can forget about seeing me do one last match."

"The thing is, I’m still working, I’m still having matches. You’re just never going to see me have a ‘last match.’ You’re never going to see me do much in the ring. I’m never going to build up a match like I’m doing a whole lot. ‘One tag in, one tag out. That’s it, I’m done, where’s my check?’ I learned from one of my teachers back in the day, ‘Hacksaw’ Butch Reed. I got to tag with him down in the Global Wrestling Federation, and he said ‘Man, I’m coming in one time. I’m coming out and asking for my check.’ That’s the way you do it."
