It’s not for them. WWE is finally back on the road and it is helping to energize the events quite a bit. There is something that you get with fans which cannot be replicated inside the Thunderdome and it is great to have them back. WWE knew that such changes would have to be coming and thankfully the shows have been pretty good so far. Some of this is due to extra preparation, but not every wrestler is involved.

Over the last several weeks, WWE has held training sessions for its wrestlers at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. According to Fightful Select, while these sessions were originally thought to be mandatory, WWE has allowed wrestlers to miss them if they have a personal issue. As a result, various wrestlers did miss the sessions due to personal reasons. However, it is said that almost all of the women’s division was present for the sessions, including Sasha Banks.

WWE wrestlers certainly do train. Check out some of their preparations:

Ronda Rousey's hardcore SummerSlam training

An inside look at Shane McMahon's intense WrestleMania 32 training

Bobby Lashley is training to be in the best shape of his life for WWE Super Show-Down

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that isn’t the biggest surprise, as the Bayley injury probably caused some people to be a little hesitant. I get the idea that some of the wrestlers are not exactly thrilled with the idea of being required to train for something they have been doing every week. If the others get something out of it then great, but I get the mentality of not going.

What do you think of the training sessions? Did they make a difference? Let us know in the comments below.
