Since March, WWE has been forced to cancel all live and crowd-filled episodes of Raw, Smackdown, and NXT. This will finally change as production trucks have been seen loading into a brand new location.
Orlando's Amway Center
In a tweet earlier today, production trucks were sited, confirming that WWE is officially moving into Orlando's Amway Center. The 20,000 seat venue, will now hold all TV and WWE Network programming going forward for wrestling company. This will be a breath of fresh air as many WWE fans have gotten sick of WWE's performance center.
As part of WWE’s new long term residency at the Amway Center, a new interactive experience will be introduced with over 2500 sq ft of LED boards, where fans will appear LIVE on the show, hosted by Superstars & Legends. Applications to appear on screen will open next week.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) August 14, 2020
Also rumored, but not confirmed, is the presence of a virtual crowd. According to the twitter account @WrestleVotes, a virtual crowd, similar to the NBA's, will be shown with fans being able to submit applications as soon as next week.
WWE's main shows Monday Night Raw (USA, 8 PM EST) and Smackdown (Fox, 8 PM EST) will now air live from Orlando's Amway Center. It is unclear if WWE's 3rd Brand, NXT will make the move as Full Sail University has always been the brand's home.
WWE Monday Night Raw airs every Monday on USA at 8 PM EST, WWE NXT airs every Wednesday on USA at 8 PM EST, and WWE Friday Night Smackdown airs every Friday on FOX at 8 PM EST. WWE's Biggest event of the summer, Summerslam will take place on August 22nd, on the WWE Network.
