According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, AEW allowed “nearly double the amount of new fans” — about 150 total — for last night’s episode of Dynamite at Daily’s Place. There are, however, additional protocols in place to protect against the spread of COVID-19.
Those protocols include mandatory masks, a security team enforcing proper mask usage, temperature checks coming into the arena, and proper social distancing. Fan Jessi Davin was in attendance and showcased this on her Twitter:
Parties were grouped together and socially distanced between each group. They had it planned out beforehand because they had to know who was coming. Do not let the camera angle fool you. I felt very safe and so did my husband. #AEWDynamite pic.twitter.com/dZiHXXgetF— Jessi Davin (@jessithebuckeye) August 13, 2020
The fans were apparently there via invitation, and the show is still not open to the public.
