One of the biggest complaints fans have had ever since WWE continued its program through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic was how unsafe it seemed to be. This only got more exacerbated by recent reports that have noted several employees for the company tested positive for the disease, and even shifting around WWE's taping schedule. It seems all of these factors have caused WWE to change things...slightly. Rather than remove its "crowd" of Performance Center trainees, now they are allowed to wear masks through Monday Night Raw's duration.
WWE fans definitely are receiving this well as wearing these masks and practicing proper social distancing is one of the ways to better keep WWE's employees safe and healthy through this troublesome time. It's a step in the right direction, and it's a step fans are questioning the validity of.
Read on to see what WWE fans are saying about the masks, and let us know what you think! Does seeing masks in the crowd bother you? Is it an improvement over their previous maskless set up? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
I like the chaotic start to #WWERaw. Also, the crowd's wearing masks!!! Also also, Samoa Joe! And, "Just like that." *snap*???👀— 🇵🇭🎶Angel Jones🎶🇺🇸 (@Tgaret990) June 30, 2020
Still Not Perfect...prevnext
Is it Too Late Anyway?prevnext
Everyone in the "crowd" wearing masks..... That's something I guess. And starting off with the contract signing is a stroke of genius. Wonder if Nadia will get her wish on a mixed tag, they certainly sowed some seeds for it if they do. #WWERaw— SandraLynn 🐺🦊 (@WaterlilySan) June 30, 2020
Now to Go One Step Further...
Hmm. Facemasks in the audience. Now if they were clever, image the whole "audience" wearing Luchadore masks. #WWERAW— Randy Caldwell (@misterperturbed) June 30, 2020
You Love to See it!
Glad to see the crowd wearing masks. #WWERaw— ☆Ashley☆ (@deadly_ashley) June 30, 2020
Will This Be Enough?prevnext
Masks are Cool Anyway!
Aside from any health benefits, aesthetically I like the masks. Gives the audience a slightly edgier look than them just being gurning randos #WWERaw— Jeremy (@Jeremy8911) June 30, 2020
