Mike Johnson is reporting that WWE has begun taking steps to prevent any outside wrestling groups from running any shows or conventions during the weekend of next year’s Wrestlemania 31 in Santa Clara, California. It is said that part of WWE’s deal with Santa Clara for the city to host Wrestlemania was that to lock in a non-compete deal with any city-owned facilities and larger hotel chains in Santa Clara. Promoters who have run wrestling events or conventions during Wrestlemania weekend in the past have been recently told that these venues will not be able to hold any wrestling events due to the non-compete agreement.
