For better or worse, this is not as free a country as you seem to think. Taxes and airport shakedowns should tell you that.

And tickets to most events have that fine print on the back. When you enter the arena and show your ticket, you agree to whatever terms and rules they have on there. They probably have something banning people from having promotional items for any other wrestling company. It would be like free advertising for TNA, showing a person with Hogan gear.

I'm sure if he had refused to take off the clothes he would have politely been escorted out of the arena and given a refund.

Just like all companies today, the WWE is allowed to refuse service to anyone they want.

"What's that shirt that guys wearing? Hmm Hulk Hogan, he looks cool"

**Googles Hulk Hogan**

"What's this? Total Nonstop Action? That sounds cool. I'm gonna go watch that just now"

Precisely. I don't understand why people bring up all this "freedom of speech" and "free country" business when talking about people who have bought a ticket to a private event. A WWE show is just that, a PRIVATE event. You must purchase a ticket to attend, and WWE has the right to eject anyone, sometimes with a refund, for any reason they see fit, so long as it's not discriminatory (race, religion, gender, etc.). "People who wear stuff promoting TNA" is not a protected class, as far as I know.

During the recent Monday Night WARs TNA did the same thing. If they saw a fan wearing a WWE shirt on the cameraside of the iMPACT Zone, they gave him a TNA shirt to wear instead. That wah why some many fans had Nasty Boys shirts on. You don't think they could move that much Nasty Boys merch legitimly LOL

This is a free country right?

- At the recent Monday Night RAW show in Orlando, a fan sat at ringside dressed up in Hulk Hogan gear. Security made the fan remove most of his Hogan merchandise but gave him a “Stand Up for WWE” t-shirt to wear.
Exactly, which means that the WWE is free to make you change your clothes at their event.

People often don't understand, the liberties granted to us by our Bill of Rights are meant to protect us from the government, that's all.

I'm pretty sure the WWE has refrenced Hogan while hes been on TNA.
I don't really see the need to remove the guys clothing but then again thats the WWE's ass backwards logic again.

First off learn to spell.

Secondly, didn't WWE recently release a Hulk Hogan DVD?
I think they released some DVD with Hulk Hogan on it. It was like WWE's top 50 superstars and they have Hulk Hogan at 32 or some shit. Thats pretty much downing his ass so they could do it.

That's bullshit basically. You can wear whatever the fuck you want. You paid your money for the ticket to see WWE, HOW THE FUCK CAN THEY TELL YOU WHAT TO WEAR?? I mean, I see a lot of the responses on here and just shake my head. I know this isnt a free country for real, but still... WWE going too far.. Hell people were wearing NWO shirts back when WCW was popping and they were still going to WWF events. Who cares?

A ticket is legally a revocable license. If you do not follow the WWE's code of conduct, they are freely allowed to take away your seat if you do not comply. If, in their opinion, wearing a Hulk Hogan t-shirt is the same thing as wearing a t-shirt that says, "F*ck WWE" with a Nazi symbol in the background, they can tell you to change it.

This isn't anything new.

That's the dumbest shit I ever heard. WWE holds events to draw people, fans, and money in. People are free to wear whatever clothes you want. As long as you come dressed, that's all that matters. If I want to wear a Hulk Hogan shirt to a WRESTLING event, why couldn't I? There is nothing on the back of the WWE RAW World Tour ticket that says what I can't wear. I think that's stupid to do that.

WWE is entertainment. It's a sport. NBA isn't going to kick out or make your change your clothes if you came with a NFL jersey on and vice versa. The Cleveland Cavaliers aren't going to make you take off the jersey if you are wearing a Knicks one. That shit is stupid. WWE needs to stop being dickheads

NFL isn't a rival company to the NBA. NFL isn't directly attacking the NBA in any way. They are completely different sports. I bet you some people would have a problem if you brought an XFL shirt to an NFL event back in the day, or something directly related.

You just don't get it, and you're pretty much acting like the customers who come to my business everyday; you think you're entitled to do every single thing you want when all we pretty much asked was for a change of shirt. I bet you the WWE wouldn't give a rat's ass about Hogan shorts. All they asked was for a change of shirts. Hell, they're not gonna rip your shirt off like nazis. But that's how you're reacting.

The reaction I get from your post is, "Hey, I'm gonna spend my hard earned money to disrespect the WWE and wear the shirt of someone from a rival company while the WWE superstars wrestle the life out of each other for my entertainment. I paid this ticket to see people risk their lives to entertain me, so I am entitled to let them know that while they're doing that, I'm still a big fan of a company who'd love to drive them out of business."

Yeah. Pretty much that. Way to be a fan, by the way. And if you think I'm overreacting, then quote Cody Rhodes, "Look within the mirror"
