Fans Evacuated When Pyro Melts WWE WrestleMania Sign At Royal Rumble

By | January 29, 2022

WWE always hangs a WrestleMania sign at the Royal Rumble event. It gives people something to point to after winning the big 30-person over the top rope match. That did not turn out too well this year.

Ronda Rousey returned to WWE and she cleaned house in a big way. After the Baddest Woman on the Planet won the match, they fired off some pyro while she pointed at that sign. Then things went wrong.

According to those in attendance, an entire section needed to be evacuated because the pyro melted the WrestleMania sign. This is quite interesting and obviously not what they planned. We have not heard that anyone was hurt.

Sean Ross Sapp tweeted out some photographic evidence along with a caption reading: “Pyro is MELTING the WrestleMania sign. They evacuated the section.”

Hopefully, this kind of thing doesn’t happen again. That being said, it might cause the company to nix the heavy pyro for the remainder of the night.
