2nd UPDATE: There have been rumors that WWE may hold Survivor Series outside of the Amway Center, but that is not the case. PWInsider reports that this year’s November PPV will take place inside the Thunderdome in Orlando.

UPDATE: While the original report suggested that WWE will leave the Amway Center on December 1, it seems they could be gone earlier than that.

Florida news reporter Jon Alba revealed on Twitter that WWE’s amended contract with the venue reveals the exit date as November 24. WWE also couldn’t run there in December because East Coast Hockey League’s Orlando Solar Bears will start up again on December 11. Obviously, the Thunderdome isn’t something that can be taken down and set back up again in between games.

If WWE leaves on November 24, then the November 23 RAW after Survivor Series will be their last Thunderdome event in the Amway Center.

Original: It was reported earlier this month that WWE will remain in the Amway Center with the Thunderdome set up through November, after extending their deal. If that didn’t happen, they would be leaving at the end of this week. It was thought they could also extend the deal to stay there through the end of the year, but it doesn’t seem that will happen. WrestleVotes noted that WWE is set to leave the venue on December 1.

As for where they might go next, the report stated that arenas in North Carolina, Texas and Illinois were talked about over the weekend. WWE is reportedly looking for a location where no sports team plays and the venue is able to hold the weight and power requirements of the Thunderdome setup.
