Report: Update On WWE's Plans For The Return Of Live Fans
WWE's next advertised live event is in July...
WWE hasn't held a show in front of fans since the March 12 episode of NXT which was broadcast from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. Soon after, the company started broadcasting all programming behind closed doors at the Performance Center because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Florida has started to reopen over the last month, as shops and restaurants are allowed to run at 50 percent capacity and barber shops have also slowly opened again. Governor DeSantis has continued to ban mass gatherings, however, and doesn't think there will be any sporting events with crowds until June or July.
WrestleVotes recently asked WWE for an update on their plans to run shows with crowds and was told the wrestling behemoth will only do so when they are permitted to by local authorities.
WrestleVotes tweeted: "I've asked a source for an update on live events returning. Status quo as of now. The plan remains to return to live audiences when permitted, which then depends on each state. Still a tricky situation. I wouldn’t hold my breathe for anything prior to July."
WWE is seemingly hopeful live events could return in July, however, as the company is currently selling tickets for NXT house shows from July 10 onwards.
