You might have noticed that there were some more people standing around ringside yesterday during Monday Night Raw and that’s because WWE allowed a select number of fans to attend the television tapings.
This was the first time that WWE allowed fans in since going behind a closed set for their television shows due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Florida is working on a plan to have live sports with fans at a 25% capacity for now so more people could eventually be allowed in the Performance Center or Full Sail University for NXT tapings.
The last time fans were allowed in at a WWE show was at the NXT fan appreciation night which was also coincidentally held at the Performance Center in mid-March. The Smackdown that followed that NXT episode started the empty arena shows. It was only a few weeks ago that WWE added some of their developmental and NXT talent to stand in as fans during tapings.
