Kevin Dunn Talks About The Challenges WWE Faced With The Invention Of The ThunderDome

WWE has had to pivot and change up their live television presentation since the pandemic began earlier this year. One of the main changes has been the creation of the WWE ThunderDome.

In a recent interview with Cynopsis Media, WWE Executive Vice President Kevin Dunn talked about the challenges that the company faced when creating the ThunderDome. Dunn addressed changes that needed to be made curing the ThunderDome’s creation which has been home for most of WWE’s programming since August.

“I think the biggest challenge was just trying to reimagine our weekly flagship programming with a new technology that, we believe, has never been implemented before at this scale. Everything had to be reassessed as we were planning to launch ThunderDome. In testing, traditional camera shots were making the virtual fans look flat. Our entire lighting and production design had to be reimagined from the ground up. We have a great team that had to reinvent themselves, and their day to day responsibilities, in order to come up with something as innovative as WWE ThunderDome.”

Dunn went on to talk about the innovation of the ThunderDome, and how he expects to see lives shows in a post pandemic world draw heavily from what the company learned from ThunderDome.

“If you asked me a year ago, I’d have said there is nothing we haven’t done from a production standpoint, but during this process, we’ve learned a lot and innovated in so many ways that I’d say anything is possible. Our goal is always to create the best possible experience for our fans. So, we are exploring a number of ideas and new shooting techniques, and in a post pandemic world I would expect to see our live shows draw heavily from our ThunderDome learnings.”
