WWE Looking For Outdoor Venue Once ThunderDome Contract Expires

WWE moved their operation to the ThunderDome in the Amway Center. That contract runs until the end of October, and the company might already be looking for a new home.

The Amway Center’s contract with WWE included a note that they are not allowed to bring in live fans. This is something that the company obviously wants to do. AEW has brought live fans into Daily’s Place for the past several weeks. Now they are selling ticket packages which confirms they will be in the amphitheater until at least the first week of November.

According to Wrestle Votes, WWE is trying to secure an outdoor venue of their own. The idea would be to run both RAW and SmackDown from the new location.

Over the past week or so, WWE assembled a small team to figure out if running TV from outdoors venues would be fesisble once the ThunderDome contract expires. Idea is both SD & RAW would be in same location each week. Southern states with good weather is the preference. All TBD.

We’ll have to see what WWE is going to do. There are some possibilities in the Florida area, and the company has their pick seeing how many facilities have a ton of availability due to COVID-19 wiping their schedules clean. Depending on local policies, WWE could find themselves with a few Southern states ready to welcome them.
