WWE’s developmental league Florida Championship Wrestling were supposed to start holding television tapings at the end of the February, but two months later and counting, things still have yet to get off the ground. They planned on holding the tapings at the end of March, and delayed them again until after WrestleMania, but things have not started yet. There is no word yet on when the tapings will finally get going.
The major problem preventing the television tapings from taking place is that Florida Championship Wrestling’s state of the art wrestling facility does not have a single public bathroom, and only recently did they realize that they need one for spectators.
There is a bathroom for the wrestlers to use in a building adjacent to the facility, but it was left in such a mess that the wrestlers don’t use it anymore. The WWE developmental wrestlers, who train at the facility for several hours a day every single week, have to go down the street to a gas station if they want to use the bathroom. Until plumbing is put in and completely installed, they won’t be able to draw fans to the weekly tapings, so everything is on hold until some bathrooms get installed, whenever that may be.
FCW was also planning on touring across the state of Florida with several live shows every single week, but that has yet to get off the ground as well. Right now, WWE’s wrestlers of the future work one show a week on Tuesday nights at a night club with a wrestling ring in it, and nothing else for the rest of the week. Because they have approximately 50 talents under contract (and are looking to increase that number to 70), the majority of the developmental wrestlers primarily work in tag matches to fit everyone on the card.
