Details On WWE Preventing Recent AEW Announcement WWE, AEW

With AEW recently announcing AEW Collision for Memphis, TN on October 21, it has been revealed that WWE may have had restrictions in place preventing advertising for the show.

According to Dave Meltzer’s latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW’s rather late announcement for the show at the FedEx Forum was due to WWE recently hosting the August 28 edition of Monday Night Raw in the same venue.

Meltzer detailed:

AEW just announced a 10/21 date in Memphis.

The reason this date at the Fed Ex Forum was announced so late in the game is that WWE’s contract with arenas calls for no announcing or advertising of dates with other wrestling companies from a certain number of days before the event (so tickets for both aren’t on sale at the same time) and for a period after the event.

Raw ran the building on 8/28 so it appears the window is about 15 days after the show before anyone could announce another show.

This is not the first Meltzer has reported such an agreement being in place between WWE and the venues that host their shows, with a June 2023 edition of the Newsletter first noting that WWE had measures such as this in place.

In other news in relation to both companies, there has been a major update on the future of AEW star Jade Cargill amid reports that she could be set to join WWE.
