Top AEW Star ‘Loves’ WWE ThunderDome

A major AEW star has said he “loves” the recently debuted WWE ThunderDome arena at the Amway Center with fans in attendance via video call.

On his latest live stream, former AEW World Champion and multiple time WWE World Champion Chris Jericho addressed WWE leaving the Performance Center where it had held shows throughout the pandemic.

On the ThunderDome, he said:

“I loved it, the presentation looked great. I think it’s great that the WWE got out of the Performance Center, it was really killing their vibe, it just looks like a warehouse, it has nothing to do… at least dress it up a bit or darken it. The ThunderDome looks cool.”

However, it wasn’t all praise from Jericho, who seemed to find the arrangement of fans a bit strange:

“The thing that was confusing to me was the fans behind them. They weren’t making a lot of noise, or maybe they couldn’t make noise or whatever that may be. It looked cool, but it’s also a bit weird out of like The Running Man or something you would see on Black Mirror. All of these faces behind you but they’re all on TV screens. Nothing takes the place of real fans and I’m really excited to have real fans at our show next week next Thursday, and we did it right.”

AEW is bringing back live fans for the next episode of Dynamite on August 27 at 10% of Daily’s Place capacity. People who purchase tickets will do so in ‘pods’ and be isolated in their pods in the crowd so they can safely distance from other people.
