Report: Update On WWE Possibly Leaving The ThunderDome
Their residency expires on October 31...
All main roster programming since August 21 has been taped inside the ThunderDome in Orlando, Florida. WWE signed an initial two-month residency with the Amway Center but the arrangement can be extended or shortened if both parties come to an agreement.
The company's residency currently runs until October 31 and WWE has reportedly already assembled a small team to look into running shows outdoors. Both SmackDown and Raw would be taped in the same location each week and the company would prefer to move to the American South to avoid bad weather.
Gary Cassidy of Inside The Ropes provided an update on WWE possibly leaving the Amway Center earlier today. He noted WWE Superstars have been informed tentative plans are in place for the company to go on the road again. Wrestlers have also been told not to plan any immediate travel of their own accord and to ask three weeks in advance if they would like any time off.
Despite the company planning to head out on the road, Cassidy noted "no firm decisions have been made" on where the company will travel to for Raw and SmackDown.
