WWE is leaving the Amway Center soon

WWE will be leaving Orlando’s Amway Center aka ThunderDome in December.

WWE originally made a deal with the arena in August that was supposed to end in November but the two sides came to an agreement on a one-month extension.

The Amway Center is the home of the Orlando Magic. Thus, with the NBA planning to hold games at normal arenas again in December, WWE will need a new home to hold TV events.

WrestleVotes reported today that WWE will leave the arena by December 1st and is currently looking for new arenas in Texas, North Carolina, and Illinois.

“ThunderDome update: source states WWE is set to leave the Amway Center by the 1st of December. Arenas in North Carolina, Texas & Illinois were discussed over the weekend. WWE needs to find a spot where NO team plays + able to house the weight & power requirements of the setup.

A newer arena is preferred as the weight of the ThunderDome won’t work with older buildings. Also, a major travel hub is needed as talent will be flying in and out each week. Not the easiest combination of things to find.”

It should be noted that it has been reported in the past that WWE put together a small team to look into the possibility of running outdoor shows.

That might be challenging as winter is here and the belief is that positive COVID-19 cases could spike during this time. Europe is dealing with that right now.
