When WWE initially had Performance Center recruits acting as fans for tapings of Raw, SmackDown and NXT, many fans were happy that the added atmosphere would be less of a reminder about the harsh realities of the world we are living in right now with Coronavirus.
However, it was soon after reported that the conditions for those PC recruits at ringside was far from ideal. With the main issue being those acting as ‘fans’ had to reportedly stand for incredibly long periods of time while WWE taped a week’s worth of shows.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select is now reporting that the conditions for talent acting as fans has dramatically improved over the last couple of tapings. The tapings are now reportedly far “easier to work”:
“After a couple of tapings where the conditions weren’t so wonderful, many who have attended recent tapings WWE have held spoke of improved situations. From air conditioning in the tents to chairs (yes!) in between segments, Fightful has heard that the more recent sets have been much easier to work. WWE has also brought in food trucks, added coolers for energy drinks. One of the catering shops actually told a person in attendance if WWE didn’t use them so often throughout this process, that they would have had to furlough some of their employees. “
This is certainly good news for WWE, as is the fact that there is believed to have been no positive Coronavirus tests from the batch testing that WWE did earlier this week. For possible confirmation on that from WWE, make sure you stay tuned to WrestleTalk.com.
It also emerged that a SmackDown star and former member of the NXT roster decided to buy pizzas for all of the Performance Center recruits at ringside for the shows a few weeks ago, in what was a lovely gesture. You can find out more about that story by clicking here.
