Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, WWE has obviously stopped putting on live events. Currently, the only shows they are running are Raw, SmackDown, 205 Live, NXT and Main Event, all of which are filmed at either the Performance Center or Full Sail without a crowd.
Many have speculated that once the pandemic dies down and we are allowed to have fans back at shows, that we will see live events make their return. However, some believe that we may never see another WWE house show again.
On the Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez noted that WWE were seriously cutting back on live events even before COVID-19, meaning we may have seen the last of WWE house shows, even when the pandemic is over:
“They may or may not ever do house shows again.”
Of course, this is merely speculation at this point. Doing fewer or even no house shows, like AEW, means WWE stars can spend less time on the road and more time with their families healing their bodies. However, it does mean that the promotion will lose a significant amount of money on merchandise and ticket sales.
