Before answering the question, Brody noted, "If people open arenas safely, we're ready. Our chairman and CEO Vince McMahon has said we're ready to go and entertain and put smiles on faces. We look forward to that next step in the transition."

Brody went to discuss the transformation of the Performance Center from a training center to a live event arena. He continued by noting that WWE is just trying to deliver content during the pandemic.

On June 26, Fightful Select reported WWE had plans to run venues with fans at some point in the near future. RP Funding Center in Lakeland, FL was listed as a likely destination. The plan called for a weekend taping in July, but it was noted that plans could change due to the fluid nature of COVID-19. Fightful Select reported on Monday night several within WWE were notified that the planned shows with audiences had been delayed.

It is unknown when WWE will return to running events in arenas.
