New report on WWE's plans to resume events with fans Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/26/2020 at 10:54 PM
According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, Vince McMahon and WWE had been planning to resume live episodes of RAW and Smackdown with regular fans at the end of July. WWE was reportedly looking into running shows at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, FL. The venue, which is located between Orlando and Tampa, can hold up to 8000 people but the idea is that it would have limited attendance with social distancing.
Florida's recent spike in Covid-19 cases could delay plans with Meltzer noting the following:
"Last word is that may be pushed to August, but the July dates were originally set to be announced this coming week because Vince McMahon was determined to be the first person to run a live indoor sports event with a crowd."
