Behind the WWE

When watching from a distance it all seems so simple; just a bunch of guys putting on a show in a ring. The reality of it all is that this couldn’t be any further from the truth. Wrestling is much like a circus, constantly travelling the globe putting on shows 300 days a year.

When you really take a step back and look at how much better the production value has gotten over the years, it is quite amazing. With this being said, there is so much that goes on behind the scenes and in the ring in order for a show to flow properly. These behind the scenes events are usually kept quiet and done behind closed doors; they are simply things that the WWE doesn’t want the viewers to know about. Just like in a circus act, the magician never reveals his secrets.

In this article we will take a look at some of these secrets that WWE keeps quiet behind closed doors.

Ever wonder why the crowds on Smackdown, Superstars and Main Event are so loud and weird sounding? Well, that’s because the WWE pumps added noise into their taped telecasts. When a big bump or popular superstar makes his way to the ring, an audio record of a loud crowd is intensified. Look closely during episodes of Superstars or Main Event, the crowd is sitting not paying attention with most of them not even having arrived yet, and somehow they seem so loud.

The WWE is especially known to do this with superstars they are high on, like Roman Reigns for example. Pumping noise into the telecasts does not happen on RAW or PPVs because they are live, as the WWE simply does not have time to make these edits. This is the reason why RAW and PPVs have much more of that real feel to their telecasts. Edits are a huge part of WWE programming on a weekly basis.
