Big ShowThe Associated Press has posted a new article covering WWE's new Performance Center in Orlando, FL. The following are article excerpts:

Welcome to World Wrestling Entertainment’s Performance Center, a $2.5 million, 26,000-square foot facility that opened last month, replacing a much smaller and antiquated facility in Tampa. It’s both a graduate school of sorts for the WWE’s next generation of talent and a training and rehabilitation center for its top-tier pro wrestlers, called “Superstars” and “Divas.”

“When I first started, the guy that was training us rented out the back of a storage unit, just a tight little space with bugs and everything. It was like the lowest-level thing you could do,” [Xavier] Woods said. “So to be in a place like this … it’s literally unreal.”

While the performance center is mainly occupied by its “NXT” talent going through training, one of WWE’s biggest stars, Paul “Big Show” Wight, was there recently to rehab from hip surgery.
