WWE launched WWE ThunderDome earlier this week and the new "viewing experience" is set to debut on tomorrow's edition of Friday Night SmackDown. While the new set promises to bring the spectacle back to WWE TV, fans will also be in the arena for the first time since March on close to 1,000 LED boards.
The virtual fan concept has proven to be immensely popular so far as ThunderDome reached maximum capacity within 30 minutes yesterday. Some fans will also be able to see the completed set before everybody else. POST Wrestling obtained an email WWE sent to "select audience members" yesterday which invited them to be part of the final production test.
The test itself will take place tonight and the company will present "a special match" to spectators.
WWE sent the following email: "WWE ThunderDome – a new state-of-the-art viewing experience that virtually brings our fans into the WWE arena via live video on massive LED boards – is debuting this week on Friday Night SmackDown. You are invited to join us for an exclusive Sneak Peek of this cutting-edge technology tomorrow evening, where we will be presenting a special match just for you. By participating, you will be part of our final production test and experience the WWE ThunderDome before anyone else.
"Please let us know if you are able to join us by clicking the link below to register.
