We’re told WWE will open registrations for SummerSlam later this week.

The top of the registration page reads: “Be a part of SmackDown hosted by a WWE SuperStar!”

No further information was given on what it would be like to be part of the virtual crowd.

As we have already reported … WWE will be bring fans back to the arena via live video on massive LED panels for their next residency at the Amway Center. The shows will also include cutting edge technology, drone cameras, a pyro and more.

Kevin Dunn also revealed in an interview that the virtual crowd will not be displayed on a video wall. The arena will instead have 1000 LED cards with rows and rows of fans to simulate the WWE experience.
