Why WWE Doesn't Air Matches On The Tron Screen, Complaints Over The Views At WWE Stomping Grounds

Quote:
One complaint from fans at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington for last night's WWE Stomping Grounds pay-per-view had to do with the lack of screens to watch the action on.

It was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio by Bryan Alvarez, who attended the pay-per-view live, that WWE had zero screens hanging inside of the arena for the fans to watch the matches on. WWE also did not show the in-ring action on the Tron big screen.

The Tron has been an issue for years now but word is that WWE does not air the matches on the Tron because Kevin Dunn, WWE's Executive Vice President of Television Production, feels like it's too distracting to put the matches on the big screen.

Apparently there were more fans complaining about not being able to see the action during the Steel Cage match between Dolph Ziggler and WWE Champion Kofi Kingston. Fans who had fairly decent seats were complaining about the view, which means those sitting higher up probably had more visibility issues.

Too distracting? Really? So you'd rather have the people who came to see your show not be able to see what's going on.

That's always an issue with steel cage matches. Bring back the old school '80s blue steel square design!

When did this change? I haven't been to a show in a while but the matches always use to be shown on the titantron and the screens above the ring.

It's been years since it changed so I don't know why this is suddenly becoming news. I went to Summerslam 2017 and the titantron only showed the SS logo. There were screens up above the ring for people in the higher seats though.

Edit: so my Summerslam note was just for comparison, that was 2 years ago, but I know the titantron hasn't shown anything outside of backstage segments for much longer than that.

Re: Why WWE Doesn't Air Matches On The Tron Screen, Complaints Over The Views At WWE Stomping Grounds

That doesn't make any sense How is it distracting when they're showing what's going on in the ring, which is what the fans came to see?

It's been at least a few years since they stopped using the tron, I noticed it as far back as maybe 2016, it could be earlier. I've been to a bunch of shows in person and they never had the tron showing the ring. It was very annoying especially when they would do matches where they'd leave the ring and go into the crowd, cos half the time you couldn't see what was going on. They do have screens for the people at the top of the arena, but nothing for the people on the floor. If you wanted to look at the screens, you'd have to tilt your head so far back you'd make yourself dizzy.

The titantron is literally the only way people in the nosebleed seats can get a good view of anything lol. Especially at a stadium show like the Royal Rumble or Wrestlemania
