Decision makers in WWE seem to have heard fan complaints.
This week, Monday Night Raw, they moved the camera hard to avoid showing empty seats in the Performance Center as much as possible. You can see the difference in the clip below from the opening segment featuring a Paul Heyman promotion with his client Brock Lesnar.
Following last week's AEW Dynamite, fans have asked WWE on social media to take the AEW idea and use the stage area as the background instead of the empty chairs. It took a few days because they didn't make the change on SmackDown, but the change was made this week on Raw.
Presumably, this is what tomorrow's Raw recording will look like for March 30, and the same goes for Raw after WrestleMania, which will also be recorded tomorrow. WrestleMania (night 1) will be recorded on Wednesday and night 2 will be recorded on Thursday night. Click here for news on two games added to WrestleMania.
In the second hour, AJ Styles cut a promotion on The Undertaker from the stage area. During the tag team match tickets (with Andrade / Angel Garza vs. Ricochet / Cedric Alexander) the production made sure not to show the areas where the audience would sit and removed the chairs. All of this led to a better presentation of last week's show.
