Report: WWE To Run At Amway Center Through October
A bigger venue, to say the very least...
After securing Orlando's Amway Center for next Sunday's SummerSlam pay-per-view, it's been reported that WWE has gained use of the venue through October 30, and will use the building for its television events.
Jon Alba of Spectrum Sports reported that WWE and the Amway Center came to a residency agreement for the next two months, and shared media depicting the company's physical move to the much larger building.
Alba claims a representative from the city of Orlando confirmed the agreement.
Fans will still not be permitted into the venue, but could appear "virtually", using the same technology that the NBA is currently using to liven up their games.
WWE had been wanting to get out of the company's Performance Center, wanting a larger, more impressive looking venue to film television at.
The building is home to the NBA's Orlando Magic, who are currently in the playoffs and slotted against the Milwaukee Bucks in the opening round. Because all of the NBA games are taking place in an isolation zone at Walt Disney World, there wouldn't be any venue conflict between the Magic and WWE.
