Maria Kanellis-Bennett Gives Update On When Fans Can Attend ROH Shows
“We want to give back to our fans but, we have to get cleared to do so.”
In the wake of Covid-19 bringing the World to a screeching halt, wrestling companies have had different approaches with regards to fans attending their shows. AEW have had some sort of presence for Dynamite for a while now, whilst WWE recently welcomed back thousands of fans for WrestleMania 37 in Raymond James Stadium.
Now, Ring of Honor’s Maria Kanellis-Bennett has shed a little light on when ROH is expecting fans back in attendance. Speaking with Wrestling Inc. Daily, Maria said the following:
“We have tentative dates, we definitely do, and I don’t want to put those dates out there right now, but I would have to say that by the end of the year, you’re going to start seeing some fans back at the shows. That is very important because that’s Ring of Honor. Our fans are the most loyal in the world, the wildest [and] the most amazing. They come up with the most unique chants. They are a part of Ring of Honor, so we want to give back to our fans but, we have to get cleared to do so.”
“I hope so, I really hope so. I mean, every day I feel like I’m hearing some news about this virus. Now there’s some triple variation, so I don’t want to make any promises because so many things that people have been promised in the last year don’t come true because of this virus. I’m just hoping, by the end of the year, we have fans. We have live events.”
