WWE SummerSlam 2020 To Be Held At Amway Center ‘ThunderDome’ With Virtual Fans WWE has officially announced plans for SummerSlam, and future broadcasts of Raw, SmackDown and NXT to take place at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla. which has been rechristened the ThunderDome as part of a residency through October per Jon Alba of MyNews13 (h/t Wrestling Inc).
“WWE has a long history of producing the greatest live spectacles in sports and entertainment, yet nothing compares to what we are creating with WWE ThunderDome,” said Kevin Dunn, WWE Executive Vice President, Television Production.
“This structure will enable us to deliver an immersive atmosphere and generate more excitement amongst the millions of fans watching our programming around the world.”
WWE trucks arrived at the Amway Center on Friday ahead of the announcement as the promotion looks to hold its first (empty) arena show since the pandemic. The show will reportedly feature a virtual viewing experience with fans appearing live on LED screens, similar to production in the NBA Bubble.
WWE reported record profits during its Q2 2020 earnings presentation on July 30. Much of WWE’s overachieving numbers came as a result of cost-cutting and saving on expenses due to not having to produce live events.
Still, the promotion has reportedly been pushing behind the scenes for months to have some form of public gathering for one of its biggest pay-per-views of the year. After holding out hope for a possible return by August, WWE was forced to cancel its original SummerSlam location in Boston. WWE insider account @WrestleVotes has tweeted several reports pertaining to WWE’s efforts to search far and wide for a Northeast location to host the event.
