Jerry Lawler Talks Whether WWE Should Pipe in Crowd Noise for Empty Arena Matches


WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler recently did an interview with USA Today’s Commercial Appeal. Here are the highlights: 

Running shows without fans: 

“That’s our obstacle (now). How do you entertain when you don’t have a live audience? That’s how you judge whether you’re being entertaining or not — the crowd response. When nobody’s there, you can’t tell.”

Faking the crowd noise: 

“I’ve been to (football) training camps where the players go through their practice sessions with loud music or crowd noise piped in. I don’t think it would hurt anything at all if they piped in some crowd noise behind the matches. And even explain it to the fans. It’ll make the matches more entertaining and it’ll make it easier for the performers themselves.”
