WWE is seeking to build a new, larger WWE Performance Center facility, according to former WWE United States and NXT Champion Bobby Roode. Roode mentioned WWE’s plans today during a promotional appearance on KARK-TV in Little Rock, Arkansas to promote tonight’s Raw taping at the Verizon Arena.
While discussing the NXT brand and the Performance Center Roode commented, ““From what I hear, it’s going to continue to grow. I heard that they’re looking to build a new facility — a larger facility.”
The existing WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida launched in July 2013. The 26,000 square foot Performance Center houses seven wrestling rings, a complete production studio, medical and physical rehab facilities, a complete gym and more.
