WWE needs to find a new home for the ThunderDome because the Orlando Magic the Amway Center. Their season is set to start on December 22nd, and now WWE is on the search for a new venue.
According to Wrestle Votes, WWE is going to leave the ThunderDome on December 1st. They discussed different arena locations in North Carolina, Texas, and Illinois. They need to find a spot where a sports team won’t move them out and they can set up their production.
ThunderDome update: source states WWE is set to leave the Amway Center by the 1st of December. Arenas in North Carolina, Texas & Illinois were discussed over the weekend. WWE needs to find a spot where NO team plays + able to house the weight & power requirements of the setup.
A newer arena is preferred as the weight of the ThunderDome won’t work with older buildings. Also, a major travel hub is needed as talent will be flying in and out each week. Not the easiest combination of things to find.
This is an ongoing situation, and a lot of variables are in play. The Amway Center was the perfect Orlando home for WWE, but that time is coming to a close very soon. The company might also find a new location which will allow them to bring in live fans, something that the City of Orlando prohibited.
