That’s how you keep things safe. WWE has been in a strange place since the Coronavirus pandemic began, as there are only so many things they can do for television. The company’s main roster shows have taken place in the Performance Center since back in March and only now are things about to change. That includes some changes for the fans, who will be involved in the show, albeit with some special rules in place.
Last week, WWE announced that they were moving to the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida for the Thunder Dome, an idea that has yet to be defined in full. One idea that will be included is a group of shots of fans watching the show from home to serve as a makeshift audience. You might see the problem in theory with this move, but WWE has a bit of an idea to deflect some of the dangers.
According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, Thunder Dome participants are responsible for any FCC fines for inappropriate actions or comments made while they are on WWE television. In other words, WWE is not being held financially responsible if someone says or does something from their home which airs on the broadcast. There is no word on how long WWE will be running the Thunder Dome concept.
There are a lot of things you have to agree to saying you’re responsible for any fines they may incur if you act inappropriately. https://t.co/9puKEImOtM

I’m not sure what to expect from Thunder Dome. Check out some other Thunder related ideas:
Opinion: I’m not sure what to expect from this show but this is about as good of an idea as WWE can have if they insist on having the live fans involved. This could be an interesting idea, but I’m hoping that they have something a little better than hearing from live fans at home. They could have a good idea here, and just getting out of the Performance Center is going to be an idea. Just please don’t have something that horrible from one of the fans. Please?
What are you expecting from the idea? Will this be enough of a deflection to keep someone from doing something inappropriate? Let us know in the comments below.
