In the past week, WWE programming has aired from an empty WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida because of the coronavirus pandemic. The company has appeared somewhat reluctant to broadcast many matches, however, particularly after how last week's episode of Friday Night SmackDown was received. Monday Night Raw only had one live match as Rey Mysterio faced United States Champion Andrade, and NXT had a studio recap show made up of video packages and backstage interviews.
During a recent interview with Jason Munz at the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Jerry "The King" Lawler revealed he thinks it would be helpful for fans and talent if WWE piped in crowd noise during matches.
The WWE Hall Of Famer said: "I've been to football training camps where the players go through their practice sessions with loud music or crowd noise piped in. I don't think it would hurt anything at all if they piped in some crowd noise behind the matches. And even explain it to the fans. It'll make the matches more entertaining and it'll make it easier for the performers themselves."
