WWE and AEW could allow fans back into stadium. The Coronavirus pandemic has forced the Wrestling promotions to go on without fans in the venues.
Much of the world is under a lockdown of different degree in a bid to combat the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic. Several sporting events around the world either came to a screeching halt or were suspended until further notice.
The ones that did take place, did so, behind closed doors. Both the WWE and AEW have continued with their weekly shows. However, they have done so without a live audience to watch them. Although things could change in the future.
WWE and AEW could allow fans back into stadium
WWE has been holding its TV tapings and events at the WWE Performance Centre in Orlando, Florida. AEW on the other hand, recently moved its TV tapings and events to Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced on Wednesday that the majority of the state would take another step in his reopening plan and move to phase two during an address at Universal Orlando.
“Today as we take another step, we’re applying this to the 64 counties, and obviously going to work with the three southeast Florida counties, as we go forward,” DeSantis said. “This is going to be signed today, and it will take effect this Friday.”
Under phase 2, DeSantis plans to open up sporting events, movie theatres, bowling alleys and concert related venues to 50% capacity.
This plan would enable WWE, AEW and other wrestling promotions to allow fans back into arenas at half capacity.
However, while the plans are set to go into effect on Friday, the WWE and AEW may not still be ready to bring their fans back fans. At least not yet, until they can put together plans and coordinate how they will get their fans to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
