Stephanie McMahon discusses the ThunderDome.
McMahon wrote a letter sent to the media and talked about the recent debut of the ThunderDome, WWE's new stage set-up at Orlando's Amway Center that allows WWE to run shows in an arena outside the Performance Center and allows fans to witness the shows virtually.
Now that WWE has had an episode of Raw and SmackDown, as well as SummerSlam, in the ThunderDome, McMahon thanked those who were a part of it, including media partners and sponsors.
Below is McMahon's letter:
Last week we debuted "WWE ThunderDome" to the world, as we took residency at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida with a state-of-the-art set, lasers, drone cameras, pyrotechnics, smoke effects, virtual reality, and most importantly, 1,000+ virtual fans in attendance at any given time via proprietary technology provided from The Famous Group. The spectacle and energy have returned to WWE, and it feels great to watch.
Thank you to our media partners at FOX, NBCUniversal, BT, and all around the world, for your support over the past five months as we produced seven hours of weekly, in-ring content from our WWE Performance Center. I'd also like to thank our brand partners including Cricket Wireless, World of Tanks, Hyundai, 2K, Good Humor, Applebee's, Nissin Cup Noodles, Welch's and Hulu, for your support of SummerSlam and NXT TakeOver 30 this past weekend.
We are very excited to share this most recent evolution in our in-ring product with you and offer new and exciting ways to engage with you and our global fan base.
Have a great day,
The ThunderDome returns for the August 28 episode of SmackDown and then the Payback pay-per-view on August 30.
