Not only is there a location change, but WWE is changing its entire programming with new technology. WWE has no plans to start live shows with the audience, but it does not want the fans to miss out on the action. Hence, WWE introduced ThunderDome, a new virtual experience for fans all around the globe.

The Chairman of WWE, Vince McMahon, did not have any on-screen presence for a few months. His last appearance was during the 25 years celebration of Triple H’s time in WWE on SmackDown, back in April.

Earlier on 21st August, WWE announced that Vince McMahon would usher in the ThunderDome Era.

 

However, Vince surely did not expect a horrifying confrontation. As soon as he welcomed the WWE Universe (virtually present through LED Boards), The Fiend’s music hit. Even though Mr. McMahon was not at all concerned, his daughter Stephanie McMahon was.

She tweeted a photo, warning him not to get inside the ring with The Fiend Bray Wyatt.

Despite the chilling entrance, Vince was not bothered. He even mimicked Wyatt’s entrance.

After he came to the ring, Braun Storwman’s music hit. As the monster among men made his entrance to the ring, Mr. McMahon vanished from sight.

The Universal Champion received a beatdown until Big E and King Corbin, followed by waves of SmackDown members chased them off!
