It looks like the decision-makers in WWE have listened to the complaints from fans.
This week on Monday Night Raw, they moved the hard cam to avoid showing the empty seats in the Performance Center as much as possible. You can see the difference in the clip below from the opening segment that featured a promo from Paul Heyman with his client Brock Lesnar.
Following last week’s AEW Dynamite, fans have been asking WWE on social media to take AEW’s idea and use the stage area as the background instead of the empty chairs. It took them a few days because they didn’t make the change on SmackDown but the change was made this week on Raw.
Presumably, this is how tomorrow’s Raw taping for 3/30 will look like and the same goes for the Raw after WrestleMania which will also be taped tomorrow. WrestleMania (night 1) will be taped on Wednesday and Night 2 will be taped on Thursday night. Click here for news on two matches added to WrestleMania.
In the second hour, AJ Styles cut a promo on The Undertaker from the stage area. During the entrances for the tag team match (featuring Andrade/Angel Garza vs. Ricochet/Cedric Alexander) the production made sure to not show the areas where the audience would sit and they removed the chairs. All of this led to a better presentation from last week’s show.
Bryan Alvarez took notice of the change and Tony Khan commented with a GIF:
