WWE To Pre-Tape WrestleMania Go-Home Editions Of Raw And SmackDown
WWE is making full use of Tropicana Field before they have to relocate
WWE is pre-taping a lot of pre-WrestleMania content before they have to vacate their temporary home of Tropicana Field.
With baseball season starting on April 9 2021, WWE have to be out before then so the Tampa Bay Rays ground-team can get the stadium baseball ready. As such, the last live broadcast from Tropicana Field for WWE is believed to be SmackDown on Friday April 2.
According to POST Wrestling, WWE is scheduled to pre-tape a host of content before vacating the stadium, with the go-home editions of Raw and SmackDown set to be pre-recorded on Tuesday March 30, and Thursday April 1 respectively, ahead of their air dates of Monday April 5, and Friday April 9.
WWE is also set to record the WWE Hall of Fame 2020 and 2021 ceremonies from Tropicana Field, scheduled for an April 6 air date.
No official statement has been made regarding where WWE will go after they leave Tropicana. Some reports have Tampa's Yeungling Center (on the campus of the University of South Florida) as the most likely destination for WWE's "Thunderdome" set-up, post-Tropicana.
