It’s a start. The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way the world works and professional wrestling is no exception. There have been all kinds of changes taking place over the last year and some of them have been rather devastating to the way promotions can run. That includes WWE, but we might be on the way to taking a major step back to normalcy.
The biggest change to WWE under the Coronavirus pandemic has been the lack of fans. A wrestling show is never going to be the same without live fans in attendance and while WWE has tried their best, things have just not been the same. WrestleMania 37 will have fans in attendance, but what about a run of the mill show? We might have a new idea of when that will be the case.
According to Yahoo, WWE is not expected to back out onto the road until July, which is the earliest date given so far for a potential return to normal. This comes as the Coronavirus vaccines are being distributed around the country, with enough vaccines being expected for the entire population by the end of May. WWE has made no announcement about when they will be returning to the road full time.
Fans can be a big deal. Check out what they can add to a show:
Opinion: This is an encouraging sign and given how the vaccines are being rolled out, things might be getting a little bit more hopeful. I’m not sure how much longer it is going to be before we get back to normal, but even having some hope for such a change is a great thing to see. WWE needs to have its fans back and I’m sure things are going to get that much better once they are back, whenever that is the case.
