— According to PWInsider, WWE workers have been effected greatly by the low crowd numbers at most of the shows they’ve been running lately, which makes working a lot less fun for them. Most think of it as a lot better to perform in front of live crowds with the style that they’re doing. There is also the fact that they get lower paydays due to poor gates to the shows. So when attendance is down, pay is down as well.
It certainly doesn’t help things when they heavily advertise people for the show, for example John Cena, who end up not being there. Recently, things like this have been happening a lot, and it’s not helping the wrestlers’ moods, nor their paychecks.
