Update On Where WWE Will Move After Tropicana Field

WWE’s time at Tropicana Field is nearing its end. As the MLB season prepares to begin, WWE will have to find a new home. Now, there is an update on where they will be heading.

Jon Alba reported on Twitter that the expectation is that WWE will head to the University of Southern Florida’s Yuengling Center. Here is the full report:

“The expectation among multiple people I have spoken to in #WWE is they will remain in the Tampa area after the Tropicana Field ThunderDome ends ahead of the #Rays season. They all believe they are headed to #USF’s Yuengling Center (fka the Sun Dome) for at least a period of time.

I requested comment from both #WWE and arena management but have not heard from either as of this time. It’s unclear if it would be a long-term residency or what the setup would be. But multiple people said travel is booked through Tampa going forward for the immediate future.

The Yuengling Center is on the University of South Florida campus and hosts several of the school’s teams (Omos used to play basketball there). A few days ago a #USF said they wouldn’t be surprised to see the move happen and believed the schedule was open. #WWE

I do not know the status of fans present, or if it would be the ThunderDome setup. The Yuengling Center is smaller than Amway Center or Tropicana Field, capacity is about 10,400. #WWE”

Ringside News first reported the news of a possible move to Yuengling Center.
