Fans were allowed to return in April for the two-night WrestleMania event. Following WrestleMania, WWE returned to its “ThunderDome,” which includes virtual fans. Believe it or not, the cheering and booing inside the ThunderDome worked well. But like all events, there’s no substitute for the energy and reactions of a live crowd.
We are getting back to normal. We made it.
