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.
#3 Increased interest in the product
It's human nature. Whenever there is a potential car crash imminent, human beings are drawn to it immediately.
And such was the case this week because one did not know how the show from the WWE Performance Center would really pan out, considering the fact that fans are the lifeline and the lifeblood of the company. Could Vince McMahon and his cast and crew be able to put on a show that is worthy of the benchmark that they have set over so many years?
The answer is a resounding yes and one must also remember that whenever WWE is backed into a corner, they seem to hit it out of the park. The best episode of SmackDown in the recent past is when the men and women of WWE were unable to return in time before the build to Survivor Series, and as a result, the top NXT talents invaded the show and put on a show for the ages, that people still talk about fondly so many months later.Published 14 Mar 2020, 10:11 IST
