WWE to pay $450,000 for two month Amway Center lease


According to Spectrum News 13's Jeff Allen via colleague Jon Alba, WWE will be paying nearly $450,000 to Orlando's Amway Center for their two month residency that kicks off this week.

Allen got the information from city officials.

During a Monday Orange County coronavirus public update, city mayor Buddy Dyer officially announced WWE's presence, confirming they will air live Mondays and Fridays and for pay-per-views. He said WWE will have additional cleaning and safety measures in place and were grateful they chose the city and venue to host this residency, a first for both WWE and the venue.

When asked if the company could have fans or extend the lease past 60 days, Dyer simply said they have the building for 60 days with Mondays, Fridays, and Sunday shows planned.

WWE officially announced the arrangement Monday in addition to ThunderDome, an interactive fan experience that will feature 1000 LED boards inside the arena that launches on this Friday's live SmackDown.
