WWE wants a decision made by early January on whether they can have fans attend the Royal Rumble

It’s been well documented that WWE wants to have fans in the stands for next year’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view event, which is quickly approaching.

Typically this event takes place in late January, but the company has yet to confirm a date for the show. It’s been reported that WWE is working on something different for the Royal Rumble.

The company hasn’t had fans in attendance for their shows because of the COVID-19 pandemic. They’ve had previous plans of having fans back in attendance that dates back to July, but month after month those plans were nixed.

WrestleVotes reported today that WWE wants to know whether they can have fans attend Royal Rumble by January 7th. If they get the green light to do so then an announcement would be made soon after that date.

“Internally, WWE is said to want a decision on whether fans are permitted for the Royal Rumble by January 7th w/ a possible announcement of sorts coming that weekend. Source states odds are 50/50 right now. Important month ahead.”

WWE is moving its ThunderDome set to the Tropicana Field, which is a baseball stadium, on December 11th. Since it’s in Florida, a state that has seen its Governor Ron DeSantis remain relaxed on COVID-19 guidelines compared to other states, it’s possible WWE can have fans in attendance.

AEW has been holding shows at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville for several weeks with a few hundred fans.
