WWE opens the first international Performance Center in the UK

 
 

WWE today officially opened the UK Performance Center, the first international WWE training facility where 30 under-contract NXT UK talent will be training everyday.

The WWE UK Performance Center consists of a 17,000 square foot space with two wrestling rings, strength and conditioning equipment, and versatile content creation infrastructure that will help in training the next wave of WWE Superstars.

“This is the latest milestone in our global localization strategy and the next step in establishing local NXT brands around the world,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “We are incredibly proud to open the UK Performance Center and provide our NXT UK Superstars the same world-class coaching and development programs that we deliver at WWE’s Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.”

WWE’s aim is to open several Performance Centers around the world. The UK is the first country to receive its own NXT brand and Performance Center so far.
