WWE confirmed that the ThunderDome would move from the Amway Center in Orlando to Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay beginning with the December 11th episode of SmackDown on FOX, and the photo released by Alba shows the “dome” and screens being erected ahead of Friday’s show in the middle of the vast Tropicana Field in Florida.
A source inside Tropicana Field just passed this along: your first look at the new #WWE ThunderDome at the home of the #Rays. First show there will be this Friday, final Orlando show at Amway Center is tonight with #RAW. @MyNews13@BN9pic.twitter.com/GEL5HmOWou
