Report: WWE Wanted To Bring In A Limited Number Of Fans For WrestleMania 36 At The Performance Center
It wasn't meant to be...
Last night, WWE broadcast night two of WrestleMania 36 from the Firefly Funhouse and the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. Fans were ultimately given numerous moments to celebrate throughout the show as Otis defeated Dolph Ziggler, Aleister Black pinned Bobby Lashley, and Drew McIntyre Claymore Kicked Brock Lesnar into oblivion to win his first WWE Championship.
Fans were almost able to cheer on their favourite Superstars from the WWE Performance Center as superfan Ringside Charlie revealed in an interview with Sports Illustrated that people within the company reached out to him about being in attendance for The Showcase Of The Immortals. He explained WWE planned to bring in a limited number of fans, but because of coronavirus related measures, the plan was scrapped.
Ringside Charlie said: "A couple of people internally wanted me to come. They even said that if some fans were allowed in, I'd be at the top of the list. So there was definitely talk about the possibility, but with all of the strict guidelines, they were already at capacity for the amount of people they could have in the building. It wasn't meant to be. If it was possible, I would have been there."
