Travis Scott appears to be in hot water with the WWE over his usage of the company’s “Cactus Jack” trademark.
Although the megabrand deserted the trademark in 2010, they are fighting to block La Flame from using it. The name comes from the iconic WWE Hall of Famer, Mick Foley.
The legendary wrestler went by several aliases during his career, including Dude Love, Mankind, and even “Cactus Jack” in the 1990s as homage to his father.
While Foley does not wrestle anymore, he sells a variety of merchandise with the “Cactus Jack” name on it.
Many WWE fans and Foley fans flocked to Twitter to share their concerns with Scott’s usage of the trademark.
Wait why can Travis Scott use the name Cactus Jack? Mick Foley gotta pull up on him. Gotta run a Hell in the Cell match for the rights. pic.twitter.com/WpdgJQGPcY

I predict some smoke from Mick Foley & WWE on Travis Scott's usage of "Cactus Jack." Low key.

Scott is no stranger to the WWE brand. In 2015, he spoke with GQ about his admiration of the WWE and his aspirations in being a part of it. “Since I was six I wanted to be a f*cking wrestler… The Hardy Boys was f*cking amazing. X-Pac was like my idol,” the rapper shared. “So, performances, I always wanted to make it feel like it was the WWF or some sh*t.”
To make matters worse, along with his knowledge of the WWE, Scott has also launched Cactus Jack Records last spring. More recently, he used the nickname for the inspiration for his joint album, Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho with Quavo.
The WWE has yet to officially file a lawsuit, but from the looks of it, it may be coming.
