What can we expect from WWE?

All of the matches sound amazing, and now with the live audience set to return, things can only get better. These are only a handful of the matches that WWE has in store for the fans.

Some fans are even speculating that there will be surprise entrances during the show. All hints point towards John Cena; however, nothing more has been confirmed as of yet. But knowing WWE, they must have planned something spectacular for their beloved fans.

The live shows will be a breath of fresh air for the fans as well as the wrestlers. No matter how advanced the technology gets, it is undeniable that live crowds have a different aura about them. For months, the wrestlers had to go confine themselves to crowd-less arenas and perform in front of lifeless cameras.

When the fans returned for WrestleMania 37, we could hardly miss the contrast before and after. It is a tried and tested fact that wrestlers perform better when they have the packed area cheering for them. And with WWE back on the road, the number of possible storylines and debuts for wrestlers significantly increase.

Furthermore, the live audience gives WWE a better idea if the wrestler’s debut has been successful or not, if the storyline is working or not. WWE Universe will never hesitate to let their thoughts be known and can even hijack shows with chants. This is what makes the WWE audience one of a kind.
