Travis Scott and WWE are wrestling over trademark claims. The World Wrestling Entertainment powerhouse is attempting to block La Flame‚Äôs ‚ÄúCactus Jack‚ÄĚ trademark, which it abandoned in 2010, because it was once a nickname for wrestler Mick Foley, according to Wrestling News.
The renowned fighter, who also went by Dude Love and Mankind, fought under the Cactus Jack name as a tribute to his father since the 1980s. Foley still sells a variety of shirts with the ‚ÄúCactus Jack‚ÄĚ nickname on them and many fans have wondered about Scott‚Äôs use of the beloved wrestler‚Äôs moniker online.
Scott is no stranger to wrestling. In 2015, he told GQ that he once dreamed of being a part of the WWE, which was previously known as the WWF. ‚ÄúSince I was six, I wanted to be a fucking wrestler,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúThe Hardy Boys was fucking amazing. X-Pac was like my idol. So, performances, I always wanted to make it feel like it was the WWF or some shit.‚ÄĚ
La Flame remains a fan of the WWE. Last year, he attended the company‚Äôs Survivor Series extravaganza in his hometown.
Scott announced the launch of his Cactus Jack imprint in March of 2017. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm not doing it to have financial control over my music,‚ÄĚ he told [url=http://www.numero.com/en/men/travis-scott-interview-nick-knight-numero-music-kany-west]Num√©ro Magazine[/url] at the time. ‚ÄúI want first and foremost to help other artists, launch new names, to provide opportunities. I want to do for them what happened to me, but better. By better I mean no bullshit. No lying to the artists about album release dates or the budgets of videos and albums.‚ÄĚ
Last month, Scott‚Äôs alternate nickname Cactus Jack inspired the album title for [url=http://www.rap-up.com/2017/12/21/travis-scott-quavo-huncho-jack-jack-huncho-stream/]Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho[/url], his collaborative album with Quavo. On the title track, he raps: ‚ÄúCactus Jack, yeah / Got plaques on plaques, yeah / Hits on hits, yeah, in the mix.‚ÄĚ
