• Vince McMahon Is ‘Reluctantly’ On Board With Having Fans In Attendance At WrestleMania 37
As we have noted before, this month’s WWE Royal Rumble 2021 pay-per-view will not have any fans in attendance, and will have the usual virtual fans in attendance via the WWE ThunderDome.
According to The Dirty Sheets patreon page, Vince McMahon likes the look of the WWE ThunderDome better than a half-filled stadium, and that’s why Royal Rumble will have no fans.
Vince reportedly wanted WrestleMania 37 with virtual fans as well, but other WWE officials weren’t on board with that idea and pitched a normal WrestleMania event in a Stadium with fans in 50% capacity.
After having a discussion with other officials, Vince has reluctantly agreed to WrestleMania 37 having fans in 50% capacity.
However, Vince is relying on ideas from Kevin Dunn to make the 50% capacity look aesthetically pleasing on TV, as Vince isn’t said to be a fan of some Boxing events that took place with 50% capacity.
