WWE Trademarks Name For Bayley, IYO SKY & Dakota Kai Group


The trio of Bayley, Dakota and IYO SKY made their presence felt at SummerSlam and now it appears that the talented trio has an official name for their group.

Following Bianca Belair’s successful Raw Women’s Title victory over Becky Lynch at WWE SummerSlam, Bayley made her return after one year out of action due to a knee injury and she was joined by IYO SKY (formerly known as Io Shirai) and Dakota Kai.

WWE has officially filed a trademark for the group using the name Damage CTRL as detailed in the filing noted by WrestlingNewsCo. WWE did the trademark filing on August 17.

“IC 041. US 100 101 107. G & S: Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media including television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; providing a website in the field of sports entertainment information; fan club services, namely, organizing sporting events in the field of wrestling for wrestling fan club members; organizing social entertainment events for entertainment purposes for wrestling fan club members; providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; online journals, namely blogs, in the field of sports entertainment.”

On August 16 following the August 15 edition of Raw, Bayley simply tweeted “DAMAGE CONTROL.”

In addition to that, the talented trio has mentioned “CONTROL” many times on social media while also using that word in some promos.

The trio was united at SummerSlam after Triple H (Paul Levesque) took over the Talent Relations department as well as the role of Head of Creative last month. One of his first re-hires was Dakota Kai. Meanwhile, IYO SKY had her NXT contract expire and there were reports that she may not return to WWE because there were questions about if she would be on the main roster. Once Triple H took over, SKY was placed immediately on the main roster.

Dakota Kai and IYO SKY will be in action this Monday on Raw in Toronto when they face Alexa Bliss and Asuka in the Women’s Tag Team Title Tournament semifinals.

The entire DAMAGE CTRL group consisting of Bayley, Dakota Kai & IYO SKY will be in action for a six-woman tag team match against Bliss, Asuka and Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair on Saturday, September 3rd at Clash at the Castle. That show will take place at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales in front of 70,000 people.
