WWE has some big ideas for SummerSlam, and new location could open up some serious possibilities.

SummerSlam is now being planned for the Amway Center in Orlando Florida. There will be no live fans present in the building, but PW Insider reports that WWE is planning something very unique and innovative for the event.

It is said that WWE is “toying” with the idea of using virtual fans for future broadcasts within the Amway Center. FOX has been using virtual fans with a fair amount of success.

For the first time, toying with using virtual fans as a possibility for future broadcasts, including Summerslam.  WWE broadcast partner FOX has been using virtual fans for their Major League Baseball broadcasts.


WWE would obviously prefer to have live fans, but that’s not a possibility right now. The company has a lot of options, but going through with something too big might cement the idea that it will be a long time before any semblance of normalcy can return to WWE television.

Are you excited for virtual fans? Sound off in the comments below!

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
