• WWE ThunderDome Set In Works At Tropicana Field (Photos)

WWE’s ThunderDome contract with the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida is up, as the company hosted their last show (tonight’s RAW) at the venue.

The ThunderDome will now move to the Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay, Florida starting from this Friday’s episode of SmackDown.

The building of the huge set is already in process, as reported by Jon Alba of MyNews13.

He shared some photos of the set in early stages on Twitter, which you can view below.

It’s unknown how long WWE plans to stay at the Tropicana Field, but it’s obvious that they’ll be at the venue at least until the end of 2020.

• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 62nd birthday of Old School WWF/WCW Legend “Ravishing” Rick Rude (Real name: Richard Rood).

His great career was cut short due to an injury that happened during a match against Sting in 1994, but even after retiring from active professional wrestling, Rude still appeared as a manager on WWF Television, where he managed D-Generation X, and later on WCW TV where he became a non-wrestling member of the nWo New World Order.

Still to this day, Rick Rude’s physique is unmatched in the wrestling business, so his body is considered one of the best in professional wrestling history.

In 2017 he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his old WWF/WCW rival Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat.
