As we covered yesterday, WWE is going to have to move out of the Amway Center at the beginning of next month due to the restart of the NBA, and the search for a new location is truly underway.
According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE is considering using Tropicana Field for their Raw, SmackDown and pay-per-view shows, along with some indoor venues.
“I don’t know where they’re going. Believe it or not, Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg has been talked about, which is a baseball stadium. I don’t know how you run that every week, they’ll have to run twice a week… I know that there’s all kinds of other indoor buildings they’ve talked to as well. That’s another deal.”
WWE is reportedly not expecting to have fans back at shows until February, although the company reportedly desperately wants to have live fans in attendance for the Royal Rumble the month before.
This would mean that if WWE does move to Tropicana Field, or any other venue for that matter, it would likely see the ThunderDome still in place for a number of months before fans are permitted to return.
