In a recent video promoting WWE’s upcoming season of their reality series “Tough Enough,” former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan boasts about the WWE Performance Center, which is located in the Orlando, Florida area. The contestants chosen to compete during the 2015 season of “Tough Enough” will train and be showcased inside the Performance Center throughout the longevity of the show.
The WWE Performance Center has been where the company has crafted upcoming talent for NXT and WWE since 2014, giving a facility for young and hungry talent to hone their craft in the ring, sculpt their bodies in the gym, and learn how to cut promos/do voice-overs in a state-of-the-art studio. WWE plans to use that facility, much like they did their former training centers throughout the extent of the upcoming season of “Tough Enough,” which will premiere on the USA Network on June 23.
Bryan will serve as a judge for the “Tough Enough” competition, while New Age Outlaw Billy Gunn, and WWE Hall of Famers Booker T and Lita will serve as the contestants’ trainers. Bryan discusses the benefits of these contestants getting the chance to train at the WWE Performance Center in the following brief video.
Bryan is currently sidelined from in-ring competition with an undisclosed injury. He surrendered the Intercontinental Championship prior to WWE “Payback” in May, only to present Ryback with the title following his victory inside of the Intercontinental Championship Elimination Chamber Match held during the Pay-Per-View featuring the bout’s name, “Elimination Chamber.”
During the WWE “Elimination Chamber” Kick-Off show, Bryan was featured during a “MizTV” segment with former WWE Champion The Miz, where he claimed that his in-ring career is not over, no matter what rumors may say. He stated that he would return to WWE action sometime in the near future.
Nice little plug for the Performance Center from Bryan here.
