The biggest reason to be happy about live crowds returning at WWE shows

WWE announced today that live crowds are coming back. There’s one big reason to love this, and it’s this:

Pro wrestling really only works with a live audience, but there have been performers who have done amazing things without one. Having said that, some of these wrestlers need a live crowd to do their best work and/or be utilized best by WWE.

That doesn’t only apply to Eva Marie, of course, but she’s the most obvious case. Whether they want to push her as a babyface or a heel, Vince McMahon will no longer get to decide the response to her. That goes for the likes of, say, Roman Reigns as well. As good as he’s been as a heel over the past year, perhaps fans are ready to start cheering for him again?

We’ll find out in July, and I couldn’t be any more excited for that.

Plus, hey, if someone is getting a big push and it isn’t getting over with fans, we’ll actually have an understanding of that.
