A WWE Hall of Famer and current commentator has suggested piping in crowd noise for empty arena shows to make up for the lack of live crowd reaction.
Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, who is a colour commentator on Raw, spoke with Commercial Appeal about how challenging it was having Monday’s show emanate from the Performance Center in front of no audience.
“That”s our obstacle. How do you entertain when you don’t have a live audience? That’s how you judge whether you’re being entertaining or not — the crowd response. When nobody’s there, you can’t tell.”
He would go on to suggest that piping in crowd noise could make up for the lack of live atmosphere, saying:
“I don’t think it would hurt anything at all if they piped in some crowd noise behind the matches. And even explain it to the fans. It’ll make the matches more entertaining and it’ll make it easier for the performers themselves.”
