That’s a way to go. The rise of AEW has changed things in WWE in a huge way, as WWE no longer has a total monopoly over the major wrestling world. That is something they have not had to deal with in a very long time but it is the reality they now face. That means WWE is going to have to change some things to make it work and they had a new idea they are employing.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is adding clauses to the deals it makes with venues, banning AEW from running an event a set number of weeks before or after WWE runs an event in the same place. AEW would also not be allowed to announce a show or sell tickets until after WWE’s event has taken place. WWE used similar tactics against WCW in previous decades.
WWE has some favorite venues. Check out some of the action from there over the years:
Opinion: You can look at this from either way, but at the end of the day, if AEW wants to be a national promotion that challenges WWE, they are going to have to expect WWE to fight back. It might not be the most ethical or fair thing, but the venues are signing on to the same deals because they want WWE in town. If they want to be loyal to AEW then they are more than welcome to do so, but it might not be the brightest business move.
