Original article (25/05 at 20h39 French time):
To compensate for the absence of fans during the shows, the AEW had the idea of adding wrestlers in ringside, while WWE kept its shows behind closed doors. After several weeks, Vince McMahon’s company seems to have changed its mind and Today plans to add Superstars in ringside for the next shows.
It’s Sean Ross Sapp from Fightful (via Wrestling News) who tells us that several developing talents have been warned that WWE needs them to be in the crowd of RAW and SmackDown. An internal note states that several “members of the public” will be intentionally kept out of the cameras and that they will help create an environment more suitable for WWE.
The talent in question passed through the medical department this morning and was sent to the Performance Center by bus for today’s recordings, during which WWE is recording two episodes of RAW (this week’s and next week’s). Dominik Dijakovic, Chelsea Green, Shotzi Blackheart and Jessamyn Duke and other NXT talents are currently recording. In short, we will see the result during RAW tonight!
