WWE are set to make changes to their new Thunderdome system after suffering early problems.
The company debuted its virtual fan wall over the weekend as SummerSlam took place.
However, bosses were left red-faced as an image of a man in a KKK hood speaking into a microphone was on a ringside screen towards the end of the show during Rey and Dominik Mysterio’s tag match against Seth Rollins and Murphy.
And that was not the only black mark as a photo of the late, disgraced WWE star Chris Benoit was also shown.
Benoit has been almost erased from WWE’s history after he killed his wife and young son before committing suicide in 2007.
WWE vowed to ban those fans responsible and slammed their actions.
Now they are set to change how they display fans by rewarding those who they have most faith in.
Wrestling Observer Live’s Bryan Alvarez claims he has been informed about the switch.
He reported: “Yes, we are having a problem with things on the screens which by the way I’ve been told that they are going to be making some changes.
“I don’t know this for sure, but the impression I get is that when they’ve been doing this for a while they’ll find some fans who will obey the rules no matter what.”
He also backed up WWE’s promise to find those responsible and take action.
Now fans who have gained the trust of WWE will be displayed on the lower bowl in the arena at ringside with those not as well known placed higher up.
The new strategy looks set to come into play for tomorrow’s episode of SmackDown and should continue for Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view and the following evening’s Raw.
