For quite sometime WWE and pyrotechnics have not been put together, let alone in the same sentence.
Pyro used to make the live experience better than just watching at home. For sometime now WWE has not used pyro for any other show besides WrestleMania.
On a recent episode of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter , they noted that the reasoning behind it is because AEW has used pyro in their shows leading up to their television debut on TNT.
“With the wrestling war going on, they brought back heaps of pyro”
Time will tell if pyrotechnics become a pay per view exclusive thing or a every show thing.
Previously WWE stated they didn’t have the budget for pyro when they first stopped using it but you have to assume they should have the budget now, and even if you don’t and you want to compete with All Elite Wrestling you’ll have to keep up.
