WWE will not have fans at the Royal Rumble

WWE hasn’t had fans in attendance for their shows because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, they’ve held closed-set shows at the Performance Center and since August been using its ThunderDome set with virtual fans.

It’s been reported for months that WWE has wanted to have fans back at their shows and was looking at the Royal Rumble to be potentially where that could happen.

However, that won’t be the case. Jon Alba reported the news on Thursdayvia his Living The Gimmick podcast.

“Multiple sources indicate there are currently no plans for #WWE to have fans at the Royal Rumble.”

He later tweeted, “As I’ve noted, it’s pro wrestling, plans are always subject to change. But the plan as of now, Jan. 7, does not include fans in attendance at Tropicana Field. FWIW, Florida had 17,783 new positive COVID cases announced Wednesday.”

The NFL will hold the Super Bowl in Tampa with a limited amount of fans at Raymond James Stadium, where WrestleMania 36 was originally supposed to take place. Now, it seems the next possible big show where WWE could have fans in attendance would be at WrestleMania 37.

WWE holds the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event on January 31, 2021 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.
