WWE is gearing up for the return of fans and they plan on showing off a new presentation.
Speaking to Variety, Stephanie McMahon confirmed major production changes are coming to WWE.
“In the ThunderDome, we were able to experiment with different types of technology,” she said. “And we needed to over-deliver for our partners and our fans watching at home. But now we have the ability to apply all of those learnings to the live event experience with our fans. So from a production and storytelling standpoint, it will look and feel different. We’re going to have a new set design, a new presentation of our talents, different locations, and arena setups. We’re going to be utilizing augmented reality in a way that we never have before. We experimented with it a lot during Thunderdome, but it is now going to be incorporated into our talent entrances. There’s also going to be animated graphics. It’s going to be so exciting and so different than anything we’ve done before.”
WWE is set to welcome back fans on Friday, July 16 with WWE SmackDown.
Fightful will have live coverage of WWE SmackDown beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Friday.
