Report: WWE Making Changes To The ThunderDome
After offensive imagery appeared on Monday...
Offensive imagery appeared on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw as a fan in the ThunderDome shared a video of a Ku Klux Klan rally, while another displayed the last known photo of Chris Benoit.
WWE issued a statement on Tuesday and confirmed they are working to ban the fans who displayed the images.
Bryan Alvarez reported on Wrestling Observer Live the company is planning to make some changes to the ThunderDome to prevent offensive imagery being seen during shows. Alvarez noted he wasn't 100 percent sure what the plan was, but he believes WWE is going to place trusted repeat users of the ThunderDome in the lower bowl while new users will be placed in the upper bowl.
He said: "I have been told they're going to be making some changes. I don't know this for sure but the impression that I get is when they've been doing this for a while, they are going to find some fans that are going to obey the rules no matter what. Maybe they've done it for three shows already… I believe what they're going to do is they're going to find all the people that they can trust who've done this before and are trustworthy and they are going to be in the lower bowl. And then everybody who they don't necessarily trust, first-timers, they're going to throw them in the upper bowl."
