Fans wearing AEW shirts are now being allowed in after initially being turned away. 


According to multiple reports, fans wearing AEW shirts have been denied access to tonight's WWE SmackDown. AEW held their announcement rally in the parking lot of TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville earlier today. The rally wrapped up around 6 p.m. ET. A brisk five-minute walk from TIAA Bank Field is Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Area, home of tonight's SmackDown live. Many fans who attended the AEW rally likely purchased tickets to SmackDown or decided to make the walk and buy tickets at the door. 

Unfortunately, if they were wearing AEW shirts, they were turned away.

Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that Pro Wrestling Tees employees, wearing AEW gear, were in line to buy tickets for SmackDown when security approached them and told them they would not be allowed inside with the gear on. Security reportedly told them, “WWE doesn’t want that in here.”

We'll provide more details on the situation as they are known.
