Jon Alba from Spectrum Sports 360 in Florida published the first photos from inside the Tropicana Field sent to him by a source showing a look at the construction of the WWE ThunderDome inside the MLB stadium.
Construction on the J-shaped structure which will hold the ThunderDome video boards is already up and so are parts of the overhead rig. From the way construction is looking, it doesn’t seem that WWE is planning for any seats for fans at the time being.
The seats are also being tarped off and while the Tropicana Field is a big stadium compared to what WWE typically films in, the company is only using a section of it and some camera magic will make it feel like they’re inside a normal-sized arena on television. Huge black curtains will help cover the rest of the angles.
You can check out the photos below.
