On Monday, WWE officially announced they would be moving production of Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown and pay-per-views to the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The company agreed to a 60-day residency with the arena at a cost of $450,000.
With the move to the Amway Center, the wrestling behemoth launched WWE ThunderDome a new "viewing experience" with lasers, pyrotechnics, graphics, drones and virtual fans.
Paul Davis at WrestlingNews.co reported Vince McMahon has been in a "great mood" since WWE announced the move to the Amway Center. A source told Davis the WWE Chairman "feels like the worst is over" and that things can get back to some semblance of normality in the company.
McMahon also reportedly believes Raw and SmackDown's ratings will recover within "a few weeks" to pre-pandemic levels as fans who stopped watching will return when they see "how cool the shows look."
Vince McMahon isn't the only person in a good mood, though, as Fightful Select noted everyone within the WWE locker room responded positively to the news that they were moving out of the Performance Center.
