'Watch Your Wrestling' comes from Tony Khan, who unpacked the phrase in a recent interview with Barstool Sports' Robbie Fox (h/t Wrestling Inc.):-

“We’ve really allowed the shows to co-exist. I put my show on consciously after SmackDown, knowing that there’s a huge audience that watches that show and many of those people are going to watch Rampage. It’s been a huge hit for TNT. We’ve had nights where we were number one. We’ve been in the top 10, top 20 consistently. I want for the fans to be able to watch all the wrestling. I’ll coin a phrase right now that I’ll use from now on: WYW. Watch your wrestling. Whatever you want to watch, watch it. A lot of people have chosen to watch AEW because it’s the best show.”

This was ahead of WWE SmackDown and AEW Rampage going head-to-head for 30 minutes on 15 October, which didn't go well for Vince McMahon's promotion, ratings-wise.
