He said the WWE is recruiting globally in a way they have never done before.“To me the world has become a smaller place, whether its television, social media, the Internet or through the WWE network. To me talent are talent and I want to find them from every walk of life, from every country, from every city, from every village everywhere in the world” said the COO. A lot of the current WWE superstars have come through the performance center and Arab News received their perspective on how it enhanced their abilities as superstars. Aiden English from the tag team known as the Vaudevillains told Arab News that he could not have felt more prepared when he moved to the main roster because he learned everything in the performance center. “You can do everything there. You train, we can work out, we can develop characters, we can film things, we can edit things, we can do an entire episode of smackdown live. Everything is available so by the time we walk through the curtain on smackdown it doesn’t feel foreign,” English said.Former women’s champion Becky Lynch, who was training to be a wrestler since the age of 15, said the difference of what she learned is that in the performance center you learn to to tell a story and get the fans invested and an overall package. “If you go to a wrestling school you learn how to do a moves. You learn how to do a wrist lock, you learn a hammer lock, whereas in here you learn how to be a superstar and how to communicate your story as an artist,” Becky said.The performance center opened in 2013 in Orlando, home to WWE’s talent development program with 26,000 square feet of training facilities. The facility includes seven full size rings, a fully equipped strength and conditioning room, a sports medicine facility, a promo room with private studio for perfecting on camera techniques such as character development and performance skills.Also in the center there is a cutting edge edit and production suites featuring a studio and voice over booth.The facility is currently training 96 men and women from 16 countries who have an opportunity to become a WWE superstar.
