Rick Scott Help Open WWE Performance Center

When WWE granted Orlando the hosting rights for WrestleMania 24 in 2008, it is one of the smartest and most significant moves made by the company.

Its success financially pleasing to the company and city, but no one could have envisioned the impact of that wisdom, which continues to benefit both entities — five years later — as Orlando is now home to the new WWE Performance Center where WWE is prepared to embark on a new beginning, recruiting top athletes behind the strength of this state-of-the-art center with its many offerings.

WWE and Orlando (and Orange County) celebrated the grand opening of the WWE Performance Center on Thursday, July 11. WWE is all about putting smiles on faces via shows, merchandise and community service. What better place for happiness than the Sunshine State.
