There was some speculation that the Royal Rumble could be the first WWE show with fans since the pandemic began. However, it was recently reported that that would not be the case.
Now, the highly reputable WrestleVotes Twitter account has revealed why WWE is not looking to bring fans back for just one show. In short, disassembling the ThunderDome for one show is too much work. Here is the tweet:
Still getting a ton of Royal Rumble / fan attendance questions. The fact of the matter is WWE views the stress, manpower and complete undertaking of removing the ThunderDome for one night as just too much to make it all work. Sad but true. The wait continues.

“Still getting a ton of Royal Rumble / fan attendance questions. The fact of the matter is WWE views the stress, manpower and complete undertaking of removing the ThunderDome for one night as just too much to make it all work. Sad but true. The wait continues.”
WWE has not an event with a paying audience since the March 9, 2020 episode of Raw. That week’s SmackDown was the first event held at the WWE Performance Center in front of no fans.
It remains unclear when WWE will welcome fans back to their events but it has been reported at length that Vince McMahon would prefer to have a live crowd. We will continue to bring you updates on the matter as they become available.
