It needed the work. This has certainly been a strange year for WWE, along with everyone else for that matter, as the Coronavirus pandemic has changed a lot of things about everyday life. One of the biggest changes to WWE was the moving of their major television shows to the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. The building served as a makeshift home for WWE, but it was unable to serve as the company’s training facility. Those days may be over.

The Performance Center is a world class training facility but there is only so much that can be done there when it is being used as a television studio as well. As a result, the trainees have moved over to a warehouse to train in the meantime, even as WWE TV has moved over to the Amway Center. Now we know a bit more about why the students have yet to move back.

According to Fightful Select, the Performance Center is currently being renovated and remodeled. It is not clear when the students will be allowed to return to the facility or when the changes will be completed. The students have instead been training in a warehouse across the street from the Performance Center and are said to like training there. In-house wrestling events have begun taking place at the warehouse.

It was a pretty impressive place. Check out how the Performance Center looked:

Opinion: I’m not entirely surprised by this as the Performance Center has been around for a long time now and probably could use some updates. It isn’t like the place is a disaster, but after changing everything about it, including its main function, over the last few months, this could be a change that the place needs. At least the students have a place to train, but hopefully the place is better than ever.
