- According to the usual-reliable, WrestleVotes Twitter account, WWE has reportedly nixed (for now) a major angle (such as the Vince McMahon limousine explosion or the Nexus invasion) that was due to go throughout the Summer, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that's causing WWE to run shows with no fans in attendance as they felt the live crowd's reaction would play a major part in the planned story.

No word if they will go ahead with the angle when fans are allowed back into arenas.
