As we exclusively reported last night here on eWn, WWE is planning to hold SummerSlam at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL. WWE’s production trucks are scheduled to arrive on Friday to begin setting things up. All personnel at the arena will be going through COVID-19 testing before unloading the equipment. The load-in is scheduled to begin on Friday and will run until Tuesday or Wednesday. The company will be bringing multiple sets in, including SummerSlam, RAW, and SmackDown.
According to a report from the @WrestleVotes Twitter account, the roster is said to be feeling good about the RAW and SmackDown tapings taking place in an actual arena, even if there are limited or no fans in attendance. There was said to have been a “strong sense of enthusiasm” at Thursday’s TV tapings.
Strong sense of enthusiasm at the Performance Center today… All TVs after this coming Monday’s RAW will indeed be live and from the Amway Center in Orlando. Some normalcy on the horizon.
