Not quite yet. There are a lot of questions in the wrestling world at the moment as it is not clear when or how things are going to get back to normal. Right now, there are all kinds of questions about how wrestling is going to look in the near future, including when or where fans will be allowed back in the arenas. WWE has an idea of what they are going to do, but that doesn’t mean it is going to work.
Back in March, WWE ran its final regular television show with fans in the building. As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, WWE has not allowed fans to attend their shows, which has changed several things about how the company works. WWE has been trying to find a way to get their fans back into the arena but their latest plans have been put on hold all over again.
According to Fightful.com, WWE has had to delay plans to run a television taping with fans in attendance in Lakeland, Florida at some point in July. Nothing had been officially announced, but various wrestlers had heard of the plans. This comes as the number of Coronavirus cases have skyrocketed, with the state of Florida slowing their efforts to reopen as a result.
They’ll be in the Performance Center a bit longer. Check out how things are going:
Opinion: I can’t say I’m surprised by this as Florida has really not been doing well in recent weeks. WWE might be able to figure out another plan in the near future, but Lakeland is not an option right now. I’m sure WWE will be able to have fans back in the arena one day, but that day is not coming anytime soon. The best thing that they can do is have a plan in place. They’ll get their chance, but they can’t jump the gun.
What can WWE do without fans? When do you think the fans will be back? Let us know in the comments below.
