Throughout the second half of 2020, it was widely reported that WWE was looking at every potential option in order to get a live audience of fans in attendance for their WWE Royal Rumble 2021 pay-per-view.
Unfortunately, that’s simply not going to happen.
It appears that with the pandemic raging on and health protocols still strongly in effect, the company has decided to move forward with the PPV without having fans in attendance.
Jon Alba of Spectrum Sports 360 is reporting that sources have told him that the company is now resigned to the fact that they won’t be able to have fans, even if they moved to a new venue or tried one of many other potential options that they looked into late last year.
