WWE Bringing Live Events To Tropicana Field

Nov 20, 2020

Two of pro wrestling's prime time TV shows will be taking up temporary residency in St Petersburg.

Since August, WWE had been broadcasting "Monday Night Raw" and "Smackdown" and most of its pay-per-view events from an interactive set at the Amway Center in Orlando.

Starting Dec. 11, it will move those broadcasts to Tropicana Field, the current home of the Tampa Bay Rays.

An end date has not been announced, but it's expected to coincide with the upcoming Rays baseball season.
