5 Big positives that came out of airing SmackDown from an empty venue
- WWE put on a good show, despite all the odds being stacked against them.
#4 Made Bray Wyatt's promo seem scarier
As integral as the WWE Universe is to the proceedings, sometimes they get into 'troll' mode and they chant 'what' at the performers who are trying their best to get a storyline over to build a match for WrestleMania or some other pay-per-view. This can be especially disturbing when the performer in question needs to be dramatic and scary, like Bray Wyatt.
So, when John Cena finished his fantastic promo about why Bray Wyatt isn't the future but other names such as the ones he mentioned were, a booming laugh rang out through the room which felt spooky and very genuinely scary. Bray Wyatt's promo was ideal for the venue because it could have been lost and underwhelming before a loud crowd and his laughter wouldn't have necessarily had the same kind of impact.
I was glad that Firefly Funhouse Bray Wyatt came out to confront John Cena and not The Fiend because this was perfect for the venue. Could we also see The Undertaker in such a setting on RAW?Published 14 Mar 2020, 10:11 IST
