During the WWE Q3 conference call and report there was a lot of talk of what has been called WWE’s plan for “local globalisation” meaning WWE Centres and local shows in various countries around the world.
One of WWE’s leading markets for decades has been the United Kingdom, and it has been no secret that WWE has some big plans for their UK arm with the launch of NXT UK a few weeks ago.
During the Q3 conference call it was said that WWE wishes to open performance centers in Europe, India, the Middle East, and many other places. Well this may well be coming to fruition in at least one of those locations.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported that WWE has currently been working recently on developing their UK performance center.
Triple H and NXT have been hyping a huge announcement to be made at the Liverpool takings of NXT UK this weekend and it is expected that they will announce the launch of the performance center.
Wrestletalk is further reporting that Johnny Moss, Robbie Brookside, Johnny Kidd and Marty Jones will become coaches of this new Center.
This marks a significant investment by WWE into the UK wrestling scene, developing their first international base outside of North America.
