WWE News: WWE’s lead production designer Jason Robinson has confirmed that WWE is planning to amplify their look when the company hits the road back to normalcy. Speaking to Below The Line about how the company will tee-off with the WWE new sets of Raw, Smackdown, and PPVs.
“We’re heading out on the road come July 16. We’re coming out in Houston, Texas on SmackDown then we’re headed right into our pay-per-view, Money in the Bank, which is one our favorite pay-per-views of the year. Lots of ladders with a briefcase hanging over the ring, so we have two Money in the Bank briefcases and onto Dallas and then we’re not looking back.”
He further added,
WWE News: “We’re headed forward, so we’re looking at new sets, new staging that we’re building. My next phone call is to the graphics department, talking about augmented reality and how AR is going to interface with our set, and how we’re going to make some really cool graphics for set entrances as our superstars enter.”
WWE News: During the COVID-19 phase, it all started with the WWE performance center, and then WWE Thunderdome became the new norm for WWE. During this critical phase, only Wrestlemania 37 was hosted before the live audience at the Raymond James Stadium. The company struggled with viewership during the course of the pandemic, but the two-night event of Wrestlemania 37 brought smiles to the faces of both management and the fans.
WWE News: Robinson shared his excitement about designing WWE Summerslam 2021 set
WWE is planning to make Summerslam the biggest event of this year. With legends like Edge and John Cena rumored for a match at the PPV event, Robinson is also excited to design the sets of the PPV event scheduled for Saturday 21 at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Expressing his excitement, he said,
I think it was just announced this past weekend on NBC that we’re having SummerSlam in Las Vegas on August 21, and man, that is going to be huge. It’s going to be our first SummerSlam in a stadium since Wembley, years and years ago [in 1992]. The next phone call after that, we’re going to talk about a roof structure that we’re going to put in at Allegiant Stadium.”
