Appearing on ESPN’s The Jump with Rachel Nichols, former 16-time world heavyweight champion Ric Flair said that WWE is building a physical Hall of Fame in Orlando.
Construction though has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and no exact location was given by The Nature Boy. There were rumors in the past that the WWE would be opening their Hall of Fame at Universal Studios City Walk but nothing ever came out of it.
During his appearance on the show, Flair said that WWE purchased the gold robe which inspired the new sneakers in his collaboration with Adidas and Damian Lillard for the Hall of Fame display.
Over the past several decades, WWE has collected tons of memorabilia that would fit any building size. Currently, they’re all housed in their warehouse.
WWE has a special relationship with the state of Florida, especially Orlando, where they have their WWE Performance Center and have for years performed at Full Sail University which is located just three miles north in Winter Park.
A location inside or part of a theme park would be the most ideal as it would get the best foot traffic considering not many individuals would just fly out to see the Hall of Fame.
