WWE reserves the right to kick anyone out of the ThunderDome for any reason they like. This was very clearly explained in the rules of the ThunderDome. Now we know their policy about AEW merch.
Reddit user Carbonsilkthread was a part of the ThunderDome testing that WWE did yesterday. They noted that production staff could be heard and AEW merch was a part of their chatter.
“The reason the AEW talk happened was because they [producers] were discussing what can be shown on screen, and that they have ability to quickly click and boot someone [out of the screen]. They also talked about a list of shirts or what can be [allowed] on screen,”
WWE might need to keep an updated list of AEW merchandise in the production truck because they release new shirts on a weekly basis.
We previously reported that fans who do anything too inappropriate will be responsible for any fines the incur from the FCC. Wearing an AEW t-shirt might not be enough to get the FCC to hand down a fine, but it’s enough to get a quick boot out of the ThunderDome.
