Many of you may have aware that there hasn’t been any pyros being used on WWE television lately. It was most noticeable at Sunday’s WWE Great Balls of Fire event when Brock Lesnar was making his signature entrance to the ring and no pyros went off and all you heard was Brock’s scream.
Dave Meltzer discussed the reason why pyros haven’t been being used on WWE programming lately during the Mailbag segment of today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio. Meltzer claims that WWE decided to stop using pyros as a cost-cutting measure. The company believes the pyros aren’t needed so they just stopped using them.
