Thunderdome

The WWE ThunderDome was a sports arena that served as a bubble to prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, created by the professional wrestling federation known as World Wrestling Entertainment in partnership with The Famous Group to allow WWE events to continue during the COVID-19 pandemic; it was created on August 21, 2020 and deactivated on July 12, 2021.

The ThunderDome was a videoconferencing system transmitted by more than a thousand monitors in the stands of a sports hall used for the conduct of WWE television programs (Raw and SmackDown) and pay-per-view events.

This allowed fans from all over the world to register for free on the federation's official website and attend the allotted call-in time to be viewed on the screens during the event in real time. In the first three months of use, over 130,000 users had access to the ThunderDome, which then reached over 650,000 in March 2021.

The ThunderDome was hosted by three different US sports arenas, all located in the state of Florida: the Amway Center in Orlando (August 21, 2020 to December 7, 2020), Tropicana Field in Saint Petersburg (December 11, 2020 to April 9, 2021) and Tampa's Yuengling Center (April 12, 2021 to July 12, 2021).
