Why Aren’t wwe shows broadcast live?

I don’t understand why live sports are live but wwe isn’t. ( Yes I know it isn’t a sport but it is LIVE! I live on the west coast and see results on social media and can’t join live twitter feeds .

    If Ribbon Twirling is an Olympic sport...Pro Wrestling is a sport.  I suppose the question becomes:  does the sport in question have athletes?

    Has your post always been the case for WWE or just during COVID?  The same question appeared for Live PD.  I think it's actually live on the East Coast but then the networks delay the broadcasts for each primetime across the zones.
