News On Why WWE Doesn't Show Matches On Tron Screen During Live Events

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 06/24/19


In the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez spoke about the live crowd at WWE Stomping Grounds last night, as Alvarez was in attendance for the event. Alvarez noted that the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington, the venue for the arena, has no screens inside of it and that meant for some fans watching live, it was hard to see the action. This was especially true in the cage match between Dolph Ziggler and Kofi Kingston, which many fans complained about. Fans with decent seats had issues, which likely means it was worse for those sitting higher up.

Making things worse was that WWE actually has a screen, the tron that is used for entrances, but WWE did not show the in-ring action on there. According to Meltzer, the reason WWE doesn’t show matches on the Tron is because WWE Executive Vice President of Television Production Kevin Dunn feels it’s “too distracting.”
