Wayne Coleman will still be able to use his trademark moniker, “Superstar” Billy Graham, at wrestling related events without interference from World Wrestling Entertainment as the issue has since been resolved.
A few weeks ago, they sent Coleman a form letter informing him of his release from the company, which also noted that they would be retaining the rights to his ring name and gimmick.
The form letter WWE issued Graham covers most cases where they had created the name and image of the wrestler, but it was never specified in his release paper that his case was different. It should be noted that Coleman used the name prior to joining the company and WWE beared no rights to keep him from using it.
WWE officials contacted Coleman yesterday morning and told him that he owns all rights to his three wrestling names; Wayne Coleman, Billy Graham and “Superstar” Billy Graham.
