Today WWE announced the launch of the Performance Center which will open this summer in Orlando, Florida, and which will serve as the new home of NXT.
The 26,000 square feet building will house seven training rings, a world-class strength and conditioning program, and cutting-edge edit and production facilities to house the WWE’s developmental talent.
Nearly 100 high-wage jobs will be created in the Orlando area with the launch of the Performance Center.
Orange County Commissioner Peter Clarke, Mayor of Orange County Teresa Jacobs, Florida Governor Rick Scott, Full Sail University President Garry Jones and Triple H, who serves as the EVP of Talent and Live Events, all attended the press conference of the launch.
“WWE could have chosen anywhere in the world to house this new global performance center – and they chose the Sunshine State,” the Governor said. “Today’s announcement that WWE will create nearly 100 more jobs for families in Central Florida is further proof that everything we do is geared towards job creation and it’s working.”
Triple H said that the partnership with Full Sail University and the newly created WWE Performance Center are critical to the future of the company.
“Orlando is now the home to the next generation of WWE Superstars,” Triple H said.
