WWE announced earlier this week that starting with this week’s SmackDown, they would be taking residence at Orlando’s Amway Center for their TV programming for the forseeable future.
Not only that but they will introduce the new ‘Thunderdome’ production concept. This interactive set promises virtual fans, lasers, pyro, drone filming, new camera angles and high definition video screens.
It sounds like it could be fantastic, in fact.
Now thanks to the joys of Twitter, we’ve seen the first video emerge of the set under construction.

Obviously this will look very different by Friday’s broadcast but it does give us a first look at what to expect for the blue brand show, NXT, SummerSlam, Raw and beyond.
