WWE has an excellent training facility in Orlando, Florida, which they call the Performance Center. The WWE PC is the home to new recruits and is also the place where the company tapes NXT Level Up and NXT 2.0. WWE is mulling a different use for the PC now.

The sports entertainment giant recently asked fans to express their interest concerning a future performance center tourist attraction. A survey was sent to fans via email as part of their Fan Council program. PW Insider provided the scoop on WWE’s possible plans for turning PC’s into fan interaction sites.

WWE issued a survey today to fans on their mailing list, seeking feedback on potential future WWE Performance Centers, including potential new markets and an additional aspect that would be open to fans touring the facility.

Based on what we have heard from readers, WWE is looking into fan interest as to whether they would want to travel to visit this different concept for the WWE PC with the idea that beyond training talents, it would serve as a roadside attraction for fans visiting the area, perhaps being located within a mall or similar cultural hub (Think the Vegas Strip or International Drive in Orlando)

The markets listed were Atlanta, Dallas, Nashville, and Tampa.

WWE’s survey sought feedback on the public attraction aspect for future WWE Performance Center locations that would feature an “interactive, immersive tour to engage deeply with the WWE brand and history.”

It was also noted that, “Based on what we have heard from readers, WWE is looking into fan interest as to whether they would want to travel to visit this different concept for the WWE PC with the idea that beyond training talents, it would serve as a roadside attraction for fans visiting the area, perhaps being located within a mall or similar cultural hub (Think the Vegas Strip or International Drive in Orlando).”

WWE officially opened the Florida PC on July 11th, 2013. The UK brand, on the other hand, opened their doors on January 11th, 2019. WWE NXT UK is closing shop to make way for NXT Europe in 2023, but NXT is still going, and now it seems they might get a tour through the Performance Center soon enough.
