However, even at the new location, only company personnel will be allowed in the arena. Fans will continue to watch the live programs on screens all around the arena.

WWE released the first view of The ThunderDome back in August 2020.

The company wanted to let the fans enjoy the live events that aligned with the actual experience. As a result, Vince McMahon and co. came up to provide the fans with a virtual experience.

The fans could sit at home yet witness the Superstars in action alongside thousands of others.

Apart from the virtual experience, the company enhanced the arena with features such as laser technology, drone views, and excellent graphics.

WWE changed The ThunderDome’s location for the third time

The first location of The ThunderDome was Amway Center at Orlando. From there, it shifted to Tropicana Field at Tampa, Florida. Yuengling Center will be the structure’s third location.

Kevin Preast, Executive Vice President of Event Management at Vinik Sports Group, provided an update from his end about the new location.

“WWE has always been a highlight of our event mix and bringing this world-class residency to Yuengling Center only strengthens our relationship. Hosting WWE ThunderDome is another step towards a full return of hosting more events in the area.”
