Over the past few months, the rumor mill has been reporting that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and several other backstage officials were pushing to see the return of live fans in time for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Royal Rumble is an event that is usually full of surprises, and the company wanted fans to be in attendance to maximize on the creative effort.
Of course, the recent issues with COVID-19 this week won’t have helped the company’s case, but according to WrestleVotes, WWE looks to have changed their mind.
It is now being reported that WWE doesn’t believe that it’s worth removing the entire ThunderDome for one night in Tropicana Fields in order to welcome back several live fans.
Of course, this would be a tough task, and definitely something that the company could accomplish, but it appears that WWE is no longer pushing for fans to be in attendance.
Royal Rumble pay-per-view is now just under three weeks away, and even though several other sports teams in the Florida area have been allowed to welcome back fans in small numbers in recent months, it appears that WWE won’t be welcoming the WWE Universe in person, back anytime soon.
