“The Tampa Bay Rays are excited to welcome WWE to Tropicana Field for this residency and shine a spotlight on the Tampa Bay area for WWE fans around the world,” Tampa Bay Rays president Matt Silverman said. “The ballpark will be transformed to host the spectacle of WWE ThunderDome, allowing fans to enjoy this wildly popular experience virtually.”

The WWE has been operating the ThunderDome since August when they worked out an agreement to move from Full Sail University to the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

Due to the coronavirus, WWE has not been staging fans on the road. No fans have been able to attend any of these shows for months.
