Former WCW producer Neal Pruitt doesn't deny that WCW used to pipe in some of Bill Goldberg's chants over loud speakers, but says it's also not above WWE, either.
On a recent episode of his Secrets Of WCW Nitro podcast, Pruitt addressed rumors of altered crowd noise, and admitted he adjusted the sound while in Deep South to help the show as well.
"Sometimes some of it would be recorded, and we would mix that in to get the people excited. It didn't happen all that much as far as the live shows went, but I know I would enhance some of the pay-per-view events.
When I did the show for Deep South Wrestling - that's where people like Luke Gallows, Kofi Kingston, MVP, Jack Swagger, The Miz and lots of [other] guys at WWE [came from] - I would always super-enhance the audio, as far as when the show aired on TV. I had a 'roar' track that I used underneath [the crowd noise], that I think really enhanced the show."
