The fan sitting ringside is shown being asked to remove his shirt, as a WWE production staff speak to him.
Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks responded to the video stating if any fans want to wear a WWE shirt at any AEW event, they won’t ask you take it off.
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.

Earlier this month fans who attended a Smackdown taping following the All Elite Wrestling rally were allegedly told to remove shirts.
The WWE released a statement at the time of the incidents earlier this month stating there was no directive to security to have fans barred from entering the building wearing All Elite Wrestling merchandise.
Judging by the video footage released tonight, it seems fans who have a chance to be shown on camera are asked to remove any signs of AEW logos.
