As seen above, WWE has released a special video showing off The ThunderDome at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL.
The state-of-the-art viewing experience features a new set, video boards, pyrotechnics, lasers, cutting-edge graphics and drone cameras. The experience also features virtual fans and registration for tonight’s SmackDown and Sunday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view has already reached capacity.
The ThunderDome will officially debut with tonight’s SummerSlam go-home edition of SmackDown on FOX. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon will kick off the episode to introduce The ThunderDome to the WWE Universe.
On a related note, WWE Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles took to Twitter and reacted to the above video. He is set to defend his title against Jeff Hardy on tonight’s SmackDown.
He wrote, “I’ve competed in buildings large and small all around the world, but man it’s gonna be GREAT to retain my #ICTitle IN THE #WWETHUNDERDOME!!!!”
