Report: WWE Superstars Believe Live Crowds Could Return Safely Now

The attendance at UFC 261 was reportedly a hot topic of discussion

Nearly everyone backstage at WWE Raw this past week reportedly feels that a live audience could return to shows in some capacity at this time. 

WWE welcomed live fans back for the first time over a year at WrestleMania 37, with 25,000 tickets sold for both Night One and Night Two of 'The Showcase Of The Immortals' in early April. However, since then, the promotion has gone back to using the virtual fan experience The ThunderDome, with the promotion hoping to return to live crowds and touring in the second half of 2021. 

Over 15,000 fans were able to attend UFC 261 over the weekend at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida, something that WrestleVotes is reporting was a hot topic of discussion among those backstage at WWE Raw on Monday. 

They say that, while hardly anyone is advocating for a return to 100 per cent capacity attendance, almost everyone believes it would be possible to permit a live audience of some fans back into WWE events almost immediately. 

WWE's current ThunderDome is being held from the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida, having relocated to the venue following WrestleMania 37.
