You need something to look forward to. The Coronavirus has changed the way the wrestling world works, including WWE. Looking at a WWE event now is worlds apart from what it was just six months ago and those changes are not likely to be changing anytime soon. WWE has not had a regular group of fans in an arena for one of its shows since March, but they might have another plan in mind.
One of the biggest questions about wrestling at the moment is when fans will be able to be back. WWE has made some plans to have fans back in the arena but they have all had to be postponed. At the same time, other sporting events have seen some fans in smaller doses, including various NASCAR races. That might give WWE some hope, and now they have a new target.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, WWE is aiming for the end of September as a date to bring back live fans to their events. The previous plan had been to have live fans at Summerslam on August 23 but it has since become clear that it will not be able to take place. At the moment, it is not clear how many fans will be in attendance or where the show would take place.
Being told with SummerSlam off the table, WWE is now aiming for the end of September as a restart for live audiences. TBD.

A crowd can add a lot to a show. Check out some great crowd moments:
Opinion: I’m not sure how much I would get my hopes up for this as WWE has wanted to be doing something like this for several months now and nothing seems to have come from it. Above all else, I’m not sure how likely this is to take place in Florida, where the number of cases has skyrocketed. I know WWE would not likely be thrilled with moving, but that might be the best thing that they can do at the moment if they wants fans at their shows.
Do you think this will work? Where should WWE run events? Let us know in the comments below.
