Adam Pearce Explains Why His Current Role In WWE Wouldn't Work If There Was A Live Crowd

WWE producer and on-air performer Adam Pearce recently appeared as a guest on the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During his appearance on the popular pro wrestling podcast, the former NWA World Champion explained why he feels his current role on SmackDown would not have worked if there were a real live crowd involved.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this particular topic.

"I have the impression that if there were live human-beings in the seats, especially those conditioned to the WWE product, I don’t know if WWE official Adam Pearce would have gotten the chance to get as far as it has. You’re used to a typecast that you want to boo immediately. If there were real human-beings in seats, I think that would have happened. I think the intention was to have a respectful authority that can make reasonable decisions on the show. You don’t want that person to be good or bad, you just want them to make the right choice. I don’t know if there were real fans that we would be given that chance."
