There was a late start to the first set of WWE Cruiserweight Classic tapings tonight at Full Sail University. Our correspondent called it an attendance debacle and has referred to it as a "mess" several times.
It appears WWE officials panicked as they moved fans to fill up the front rows. They then claimed that a wreck on I-4 caused traffic issues, which caused the empty seats and delayed start time. Fans started showing up with reserved seating but other fans had already been moved into those seats, presumably due to the fear of bad attendance.
At 6:45pm, our correspondent noted that officials were now moving fans around and having to rearrange the entire reserved sections to get people in their correct seats. The "talent parade" that was to begin at 6:30pm didn't begin until 6:55pm.

They are tapping off the non-camera side of the GA bleachers and moving people in to empty rows. Yikes. #CruiserweightClassic— Will Henderson (@willh94) June 23, 2016
