WWE’s Ambitious Plan to Legalize Betting on Matches

The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has been working on a novel idea – legalizing betting on their matches. If they manage to pull it off, it will have significant implications on how they operate. The WWE matches are not “fake” per se, but they are predetermined, with wrestlers working together to tell a story in the ring. However, if betting on matches becomes legal, this would mean that the wrestlers involved won’t be able to know their own match finishes, at least not until the betting closes.

Dave Meltzer, a renowned wrestling journalist, recently spoke about this development on Wrestling Observer Radio. He explained that if WWE legalizes betting on their matches, the talent won’t be able to know their finishes until the betting closes, lest they violate gaming regulations. According to Meltzer, the talent will simply not be aware of their match finishes beforehand, which would be a significant departure from the current system.

It is interesting to note that not everyone within the company was aware of WWE’s plan to legalize betting on matches. If they do manage to pull it off, it would be a game-changer for the professional wrestling industry. The prediction is that wrestlers will only be told about their match finish just before the show starts, when betting closes. This development could add an extra layer of excitement for fans who have placed bets on the matches.

The million-dollar question is whether this would ruin pro wrestling as we know it. Some fans may argue that knowing the outcome in advance would take away from the excitement and unpredictability of the matches. Others may welcome the added element of intrigue and the possibility of making informed bets on the matches.

For now, it remains to be seen whether WWE will be able to successfully legalize betting on their matches. If they do, it will be a significant shift for the company and the entire professional wrestling industry. Fans will have to wait and see how this development unfolds, but one thing is certain – it would be a bold and ambitious move by WWE, and it would be interesting to see how it impacts the world of professional wrestling.
