How Is AJ Styles P1 Logo Allowed In WWE?

Hamish Woodward

AJ Styles is undoubtedly one of the most talented wrestlers of his generation.

Since making his debut in WWE in 2016, he has become a fan-favorite and one of the company’s top stars. One of the trademarks of Styles’ persona is his iconic P1 logo, which has been an integral part of his brand for many years.

However, some fans may wonder why Styles is allowed to use his P1 logo in WWE, given the company’s strict control over intellectual property.

In this article, we’ll explore the history of AJ Styles’ P1 logo, why he’s allowed to use it in WWE, and what it means for the wrestler’s brand.

AJ Styles P1 Logo In WWE

AJ Styles is allowed to use his P1 logo in the WWE because he owns the copyright for the logo.

The former TNA World Champion debuted in the WWE in 2016, and brought his entire presentation from TNA with him.

He retained his name (AJ Styles) and his attire and logo, something which rarely happens for non-WWE stars signing for the company.

However, AJ Styles was a bigger star than others, and WWE paid him big money to bring his already established character to the company.

This included AJ Styles’ P1 Logo, which he likely licensed to the WWE in order to sell merchandise, such as t-shirts and gloves, for the fans to buy.

TNA did not own the trademark to the P1 logo or the name AJ Styles, because he went by that gimmick before he was in TNA.

He wrestled as Air Styles in WCW before they went under, and changed to AJ Styles at some point after. The AJ in AJ Styles comes from his real name, which is Allan Jones.

AJ Styles has worn his iconic P1 logo since he debuted in WWE in 2016, and it has become a key part of his character.

He went on to become a two-time WWE Champion, and has won nearly every other title in the WWE at the moment.

AJ Styles has had some incredible matches in the WWE, with particular good matches against Brock Lesnar, John Cena and Daniel Bryan.

He beat John Cenaa multiple times in the company, making him one of the few men to beat the 16 time world champion at all, during his peak years with the company.

The logo says “P1” on it to reference AJ Styles’ nickname in wrestling.

For years, he has gone by “The Phenomenal One”, due to his incredible high-flying ability in the ring.

There were some fans who thought that he would not be able to go by “The Phenomenal One” in WWE, due to the similarities to The Undertaker’s nickname of “The Phenom”.

In the end, it all turned out to be fine, and the comparisons were even used in The Undertaker’s last match in WWE, when he wrestled AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36.
