Update regarding plans for virtual fans at WWE events Submitted by Aaron Rift on 08/14/2020 at 08:49 AM
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com has confirmed the report that WWE is looking into the concept of having virtual fans in attendance at upcoming shows. In regards to why WWE is moving from the Performance Center to the much larger Amway Center, Meltzer noted the following:
"There has been talk that the darkness and size of the current building they believe is one of the things that has hurt the ratings."
Meltzer added that there is going to be a bigger production crew and more "bells and whistles" with the television product.
Twitter account @WrestleVotes is reporting the following:
As part of WWE’s new long term residency at the Amway Center, a new interactive experience will be introduced with over 2500 sq ft of LED boards, where fans will appear LIVE on the show, hosted by Superstars & Legends. Applications to appear on screen will open next week.
