The Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, the site of Cyber Sunday in 2006 and Starrcade in 2018 are refusing to host an upcoming AEW event due to their relationship with WWE, according to Fightful Select. It now appears that AEW will instead run the smaller Cintas Center at Xavier University.
The venue’s concern is that if they host a non-WWE wrestling show, WWE will react and won’t run shows at that location going forward, which would lose them more money long-term.
In the past, WWE tried to block Madison Square Garden from hosting the combined Ring Of Honor and New Japan-Pro Wrestling G1 Supercard at the venue. MSG didn’t end up caving to WWE and allowed the show, which was the first non-McMahon run wrestling show at the arena since 1960.
