Source: Orlando SentinelAs noted earlier, WWE will announce new developmental plans at a press conference this afternoon in Orlando. The office of Governor Rick Scott confirmed the news to OrlandoSentinel.com on Wednesday evening in a statement:
"WWE could have chosen anywhere in the world to house this new global performance center – and they chose the Sunshine State. [The] announcement that WWE will create nearly 100 more jobs for families in Central Florida is further proof that everything we do is geared towards job creation."
The new WWE Performance Center is expected to bring as many as 100 jobs to the area, including the wrestlers in training as well as sports medicine and TV production personnel. The project has been titled Project Flair, an apparent reference to Ric Flair.
