Three weeks ago, after the AEW press conference in Florida, we told you about conflicting reports of fans being asked to removed AEW signs/merchandise during that nights SmackDown which was also in Florida. (Read that story HERE). Video began to surface last night of a fan at the Royal Rumble being asked to remove his AEW. The video is below, and includes a response from the Young Bucks.
Let it be known that if you wanna wear a WWE shirt at Double Or Nothing or any AEW related event we won’t do this to you.

WWE must be shaking in their boots about competition. AEW has a whole two events booked, no television deal, and currently a small talent roster. The paranoia by WWE is amazing, and doesn’t put them in a good light. In the past, competition has done nothing but bring out the best in WWE. On the other hand, its has also brought out some dirty tactics, so I wouldn’t be surprised if incidents like this continue.
