WWE scheduled to hold weekly live Raw and Smackdown broadcasts from Amway Center

 
 

WWE is scheduled to hold live Raw and Smackdown from the Amway Center moving forward after SummerSlam, moving out from the WWE Performance Center for the first time since mid-March.

Jon Alba from Spectrum News 13 said that this consistent booking for the arena will probably get some people at the Amway back to work even though there won’t be any fans in the building. The Amway Center remains closed for other bookings through the end of the year.

WWE saved millions of dollars by holding TV in the same location at the Performance Center over the past several months and apart from the rent of the arena, the company can have the ring, lighting rig, Gorilla position, and all the basics remain in place while only changing the set from Raw to Smackdown.

Moving weekly TV out of the PC will allow WWE to return the PC to its original look and use. NXT is expected to keep taping at Full Sail University.

An official announcement should be coming out shortly.
