Castagnoli's application is searchable via the USPTO's database.
The 41-year-old has been a free agent since his WWE contract expired in February. Although it was reported that the Swiss national wasn't actively looking to leave the company he had worked for since 2011, the two parties were unable to come to terms on a new agreement.
Castagnoli is yet to re-emerge in pro wrestling, despite his lack of a non-compete clause.
