WWE TEASING 'MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT' FOR THIS WEEK

By Mike Johnson on 2013-04-17 15:19:15

WWE has issued a press advisory in the Orlando area that a major announcement will be coming this week. I believe the announcement will be the official details on WWE developmental moving to that market with a full fledged training center.

The press conference lists Florida Governor Rick Scott, Orange County mayor Teresa Jacobs, Triple H, and Full Sail University president Garry Jones as appearing.

The announcement is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Thursday at 5505 Forsyth Commons Road, in an industrial park between East Colonial Drive and State Road 408.  That is across from Full Sail University's main campus.

Stephanie McMahon noted during the company's Business Summit with their partners over Wrestlemania weekend that their training center would be launched shortly.

Potential WWE signings who had tryouts several months back in Tampa were advised they likely would not receive offers until the next location in Orlando was ready to go as well.

So, all signs point to the official unveiling of WWE developmental leaving Tampa for the greater Orlando area.
