You could do it that way. The Coronavirus has changed the way the wrestling world works and that is going to be the case for a long time to come. Wrestling companies, with WWE in particular, has had to make all kinds of adjustments to make things work during the pandemic, including getting used to working without fans. That will be different during a pair of upcoming nights, but it might not be what was planned.
We are just over two months away from WrestleMania 37, which will be a rather special weekend for more than one reason. In addition to being the biggest night of WWE’s year from a storyline perspective, it is also going to be the first event in over a year with a large amount of fans. WWE has yet to release all of the details for how fans will be included, but one of the details could be rather unique.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, WWE may consider using cardboard cutouts to fill in the empty seats at WrestleMania 37. The Super Bowl is being held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, the same venue as WrestleMania, and is using the cutouts. WWE had been against the idea leading up to WrestleMania, and it is still not clear how many fans will be allowed in the stadium.
With the Super Bowl tonight at Raymond James Stadium -home of WrestleMania 37 in 9 weeks- so far, WWE has been against the idea of filling the “empty” seats w/ cutouts as the NFL has done. I assume that decision will be discussed again now as the stadium looks great. #SuperBowl

Opinion: This might sound like a crazy idea but it really can make a big difference for how the stadium looks. There will be fans in the stadium for WrestleMania but at the same time, it will do a lot of good to have a better visual. At the end of the day, one of the bigger issues with the lack of fans is that things don’t look as good, so even having a mostly fake crowd is better than nothing.
