Arkansas Sports Betting Bill Bans WWE Wagering

Wagering on WWE events could be illegal in Arkansas.

Brian Pempus of SportsHandle reports that Arkansas state senator Will Bond proposed a bill that would place new regulations on betting in the state. The bill, called Athletic Event Wagering Act of 2019, would prohibit bets on WWE events. Pempus reports, "Few if any states would allow bets on non-traditional sporting events, so that’s not usual, but explicitly singling out (WWE) is uncommon for a sports betting bill."
