- Triple H, Florida Governor Rick Scott and Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs announced WWE’s new Performance Center at a news conference today. The new facility, located in Orlando, will replace the company’s current developmental facility in Tampa.
Triple H noted that the 26,000-square-foot facility would feature seven wrestling rings and its own strength-and-conditioning and physical-therapy areas.
The facility will also strengthen WWE’s relationship with Full Sail University as Full Sail students will learn about TV production from the facility’s sound stage.
The WWE Performance Center is expected to have an economic impact as well as it’s expected to employ around 100 people, creating 16 new full-time jobs. The open is expected for some time this summer.
Here are some photos from the conference:
