    Smackdown was a bit weird especially when some of the wrestlers were trying to play up to the crowd of empty seats.

    Really? Might have to catch the highlights.

    I’m not sure how wrestling would even work without a crowd. Without anyone to perform in front of it’s just a bunch of people in their pants.

    It doesn't really work and all feels a bit awkward. I have no idea why they includes seats.

    Saw Jeff Hardy's match. It was funny to see him run on reflex and do all the things he's used to to play up to the crowd (like his roar and hand signal just before he does Twist of Fury).

    It'll also be much easier to hear if they're calling out moves.

    That was such a weird episode.

    Although I suppose at least it gave the rest of the roster a chance to feel the 205 experience for themselves

    Surprised they didn't pump out chants through the speakers... like they have plenty of times before.

    I guess no one can boo Reigns now.

    Roman Reigns finally gets the reaction he deserves. No boos. No cheers. Just silence. (Although between him and Goldberg they’ll find it hard not to pipe in cheers).

    The thing that got me is that no one is changing their promo style. So just because they’re not addressing a stadium it doesn’t mean they have to STOP TALKING... IN CAPS LOCK... WITH PAUSES FOR AUDIENCE REACTION.

    Also, given he’s only there because people fucking hate him, what’s Baron Corbin for now?

    I'm glad they haven't cancelled it. You might all laugh about no crowd reactions and it'll be shit etc but it's a form of escapism for a lot of us. I'll be watching.

    Nah they should push it back. Drew deserves an actual reaction when he beats Brock

    @captbirdseye I think they’re doing empty arena shows in Jacksonville. At least this week.

    Thoughts on the two ex WWE guys joining?

    Thought it was great and the whole setup was so much better than WWE. MJF being the crowd betting on matches was the best part.

    You can imagine how pissed Vince was when he told him and it was madness that he was still appearing shows.

    The guy had/has leukaemia in the UK the government would have texted to tell him not to leave the house for at least three months.

    He shouldn’t be anywhere near a locker room or ring right now.

    Fans or no fans AEW are killing it right now.

    And very classy move to book a double episode of Dark to give paycheques to indie guys who’d lost their bookings

    It's so gutting that THIS happened just as they were really hitting their stride. Last week's show with Brodie and Hardy debuts - imagine if it was in front of a live crowd.

    Wonder how the TNT contact will work if AEW have to stop producing shows. TNT have paid for that content. At least the Khan's have deep pockets to protect the company but still....

    Fucking hate watching wrestling with no crowd. Wish they'd CGI one in and dub in some crowd noise.

    Should be used to non existent crowd noise watching main roster WWE for the last 5 years.

    He’s never really been the franchise player anywhere he’s been but he might be the best all rounder ever

    Agree with that, from what I've seen (which isn't much since the 90s but having a renaissance in the past 2 years thanks to the WrestleMe Podcast)

    Anyone watch NXT on the network? Latest episode is missing. I’m suspecting BT have complained and they have exclusive rights for the month like Smackdown and Raw. Pisses me right off.

    We all knew New Jack was fucking insane but hearing it all again... bloody hell.
