WWE will be staying at the ThunderDome for at least another four weeks.
PWInsider have confirmed that there is a new deal in place to keep Raw and SmackDown at Orlando’s Amway Center beyond the end of their current contract which expires on the 31st October.
Late last month WWE were reported to be exploring the possibility of going back on the road after the agreement expired. Although importantly, at the time no firm decision had been taken either way.
It was also noted that a contract extension was not off the table, and that any notice of intention to leave could be used to leverage renegotiations with the Amway Center, which is said to have made $450,000 from their agreement with WWE up to that point.
While the ThunderDome will be staying put in the short term, Inside The Ropes understands that WWE is exploring moving WrestleMania to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The event is still officially set to take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, but WWE is understood to be looking at other options.
This was swiftly followed by the news of Florida Govenor Ron DeSantis removing restrictions on crowd capacity in the state., thus making WrestleMania in a full capacity stadium a distinct possibility, should WWE opt to go down that route.
Tonight’s episode of Raw from the ThunderDome will feature the second night of the WWE Draft, as Seth Rollins bids farewell to the red brand.
