Don't forget; the fans pay to get in to the HOF ceremony. So, it's extra money in WWE's pocket. That's why they won't ban the fans. WWE are money-whores first and foremost.

Re: Should live crowds be removed from the Hall of Fame?

Dude, the Hall of Fame is centered around selling out a event that isn't wrestling. It's purpose is to make money from drawing a big crowd. They set it up by design to sell out a live event and since there is no physical Hall of Fame, why not make money off the concept and hold it in a arena. Whatever way you feel about the crowd, they rarely make the highlights and WWE has edited out the crowd noises in rebroadcasts in the past. The Hall of Famer's get their moment and also get to share a moment in Wrestlemania. It's wrestling the good the bad reactions it doesn't phase them, they understand the business.

Rollins then pins Reigns for the win, it gets the title off Lesnar without hurting his monster image and give Reigns someone to feud against for the next few months.

This is how I would cash in.
I saw it coming a month before Wrestlemania.

It would be super awkward to have no fans there and have wrestlers tell other wrestlers stories they probably heard five times already.

Something like this.

Having a live crowd at the HOF isn't the worst thing in the world but I don't feel it's the time and place to be chanting random shit and booing random guys. Save that for Mania/Raw.

I haven't seen the whole ceremony yeah but woke up in time to catch Angles and his speech wouldn't have felt as good in a super quiet audience so it does help, but yeah some form of limitations would help.
