Report: First Look At WWE ThunderDome

Have they taken inspiration from Bartertown...

Yesterday, WWE confirmed they would be moving production of Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown and pay-per-views to the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. Along with the move, the company launched WWE ThunderDome, a new "viewing experience" which will include pyrotechnics, lasers, drones and "cutting-edge" graphics.

Kevin Dunn also revealed rows upon rows of fans will appear in the arena from the comfort of their own home using close to 1,000 LED boards. Fans can sign up to be in the crowd at wwethunderdome.com.

The roof of the Amway Center will also be put to good use as the WWE EVP mentioned the company plans to project content onto the top of the arena to create entrances "better than WrestleMania."

WWE started constructing the set yesterday and Pro Wrestling Sheet shared a first look inside the Amway Center last night. WWE's new home has seemingly drawn inspiration from Bartertown's Thunderdome as it appears the ring will be surrounded by metal pillars. A cage was also being projected onto the titantron.

Fans will have to wait until the go-home episode of SmackDown to see the completed set, however. 

Check out the first look at the set from Pro Wrestling Sheet below:
