WWE ThunderDome starts its residency at Tropicana Field on Friday, December 11 starting with SmackDown®, and you can get virtual tickets.

The move to Tampa Bay marks the next iteration for WWE ThunderDome, which launched to critical acclaim in August as part of WWE's first-ever residency at Amway Center in Orlando.

World Wrestling Entertainment says ThunderDome features a state-of-the-art set, video boards, pyrotechnics, lasers, cutting-edge graphics and drone cameras.

WWE ThunderDome provides an immersive viewing atmosphere and virtually brings thousands of fans into the arena via live video, in conjunction with The Famous Group and its proprietary technology, for every Monday Night Raw®, Friday Night SmackDown® and WWE pay-per-view event.

"We are proud to have reimagined the in-arena atmosphere and provide an interactive experience like nothing else in sports and entertainment with the launch of WWE ThunderDome," said Kevin Dunn, WWE Executive Producer & Chief, Global Television Production. "Our fans' response and industrywide recognition are both humbling and further validation of the innovative spirit and passion that exist across the entire WWE organization."

Fans can register for their virtual seat to be part of upcoming WWE shows online here.

Raw, SmackDown and pay-per-view programming will be produced at Tropicana Field on closed sets with only essential personnel in attendance. WWE will continue to administer its health and safety protocols for talent, crew and employees in conjunction with each production, including PCR testing for COVID-19, social distancing and wearing masks.
