WWE reportedly preparing to returning back to ThunderDome if state mandates are issued due to the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
According to the Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE might move to Performance Center in Florida or return to the ThunderDome setup to run their weekly Raw and SmackDown shows if mandates are issued.
“WWE can go back to someplace in Florida. You can always do the Performance Center. The problem is that if you put RAW and SmackDown in front of 300 people again, those numbers will crater. The ThunderDome thing, I mean they did better in the ThunderDome than the Performance Center, so I think that in that sense WWE could look at a ThunderDome again and try to take residency in a building, but it’s hard because I guess you could do the baseball stadium, because baseball isn’t starting for months, so I guess they’ll go to the Tampa baseball stadium and set up,” said Melzter.
But According to recent news, WWE’s upcoming events in Jeddah could be canceled due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the United States. The transmission of the Omicron variant is a major ongoing issue, which could lead to more restrictions in the US.
