• SmackDown Wrestler Says He Hates Piped-In Fan Reactions In WWE ThunderDome
While speaking on the Gorilla Position podcast, Jey Uso gave his opinion on the piped-in crowd reactions WWE has been using inside the ThunderDome to create a normal atmosphere for fans at home to experience.
Below is what he said:
“I can definitely hear the piped-in noise [when I’m inside ThunderDome]. I hate it, though. There is no energy. I have to draw that [energy] from either myself or my opponent.
Typically, you know how it is when you walk through the curtains, and there are people [providing you with that energy]. However, now it is like dancing in an empty room instead of when it’s go-time with the people. That part I miss, because I have to draw that from within myself, Uce.
I used to walk down the aisle, and put my hand out to meet the fans, especially children. When I was a kid, I touched the hands of Ultimate Warrior, and that’s cool stuff which always sticks with you. So yeah, those special moments I miss a whole lot.
I really, really miss the people. That’s what made wrestling special, just like football. A live audience.”
