WWE Rumored To Move Raw To Football Stadium

On the latest episode of the “Nitty Gritty Dirt Show” on RussosBrand.com, host Billi Bhatti and former WWE writer Vince Russo, discussed how WWE plans to slowly transition fans back into events and where they might run events once the coming MLB season gets underway.



On the most recent episode, Bhatti said that there is an idea to move Monday Night Raw and Smackdown to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay after WrestleMania, though it’s unclear if they’d want to have limited fans or move the Thunderdome there. A couple of weeks ago Bhatti detailed an alternate plan to move Raw and Smackdown to the Capital Wrestling Center.

Wrestling-Edge transcribed Bhatti’s comments below.

Bhatti: The Thunderdome that they are at now, that’s gonna be difficult to use once we hit the baseball season. So they won’t be able to go in that Thunderdome either. It’s going to get very complicated in terms of where they go with RAW.

They think they might go to the Capital Wrestling Center where NXT is, I know they are testing that out. There is going to be a pay-per-view at the Capital One Center as a test.

That test will let some fans into the Capital Wrestling Center, not paying fans but some fans but the idea is to test that to allow paying fans in combined with a Thunderdome.

Bhatti continued:

Bhatti: So after WrestleMania, which no one is reporting, they might go with a Thunderdome/fan combination at the Capital Wrestling Center for a short period of time until Biden’s vaccination program is fully rolled out.
