Stephanie McMahon on Return of WWE Crowds: ‘Without Our Fans, We Don’t Have a Product’ .
WWE is marking the return of fans in a big way by going all out at SummerSlam in Las Vegas. WWE shows return to the road in less than a month, starting mid-July in Texas.The connection with the crowd has been sorely missing from the product on a weekly basis for the past 15 months. Although there was a glimmer of hope at WrestleMania 37, which followed the Super Bowl at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium with a limited crowd, the upcoming slate of shows will be full capacity, hitting its summer crescendo with SummerSlam in August at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
