World Wrestling Entertainment (Website) has announced that it will be moving all television production out of its WWE Performance Center and into the Amway Center effective immediately.
WWE will be hosting its SummerSlam event at the Amway Center this Sunday, followed by its Raw, SmackDown, and pay-per-views programming for the foreseeable future and will be calling the Center the “WWE ThunderDome” during the new long-term residency.
The residency was made possible due to the pandemic and the lack of touring concerts and sporting events at the Center. The Amway will be completely retrofitted to allow for enhanced production value including indoor flying drone cameras, fireworks, lasers, and a new projection surface above the ring, that will be installed on the ceiling of the arena.
The matches will not be open to public, in-person viewing but fans can register for virtual seats HERE or on WWE’s Facebook page that will broadcast the fan’s likeness onto roughly 1,000 LED screens located around the arena during the show.
