By 105.3 The Fan

DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Former WWE wrestler Ryback is threatening to take legal action against Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott over his use of the phrase, "Feed Me," TMZ reports.

"I'll tie him up for years," Ryback said this week his youtube channel. "He ain't using it. So he better get a good tattoo artist to go have him cover that sh*tty tattoo up on his stomach."

Ezekiel Elliott is known for his “feed me” celebration on the gridiron. He loves the celebration so much that he decided to get a tattoo with the words "Feed Me" with a spoon next to it on his stomach. And now, he's trying to trademark it.

According to TMZ, Ryback owns the rights to the phrase "Feed Me More", a phrase he popularized while in the WWE.

Ryback says he became upset when heard Elliott filed a trademark for the phrase this month.

"This is exactly my phrase," Ryback said. "It's exactly. And it's the same meaning. And that will cause confusion."

He went on to say that he believes Elliott stole the phrase from him because the Cowboys running back is a big wrestling fan.

"I think it's low-life, scum sh*t, quite frankly," Ryback said ... "You're literally trying to latch onto somebody else's brand and then take it and make it your own."

Elliott has been using the "feed me" celebration since he came into the NFL in 2016. The phrase has come in handy for Elliott to do some good in the community as he helped 'feed' 400,000 North Texas families in need this summer.
