Fans openly complained on social media about the LED lights on AEW’s set. They pointed upward and blinded those in the crowd. It was apparently becoming a problem when those fans who paid to get a seat couldn’t see the show.

This is not a new problem for fans at pro wrestling events. There were fans at AEW All Out who were blinded by the lights. WrestleMania’s lighting rig also blinded a few of those fans and there were complaints on Twitter. It just goes to show that sometimes the best seat is the one you have at home.
