Orange County to get World Wrestling Entertainment training center

World Wrestling Entertainment announced Thursday that it is going to build a new training center in east Orange County.

In a statement, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said WWE "could have chosen anywhere in the world to house this new global performance center -- and they chose the Sunshine State." Scott had made business development one of his priorities, so it is understandable that he is very excited by this announcement.

Details on the new training facility are scant at the moment, but sources close to WWE have said they think the new training center will generate 100 jobs, such as sports-medicine specialists and TV-production personnel.

Personally, we will be interested to hear how much commercial real estate the facility will occupy and how large it will be.

WWE already operates a training center in Tampa. It is not known whether the Orlando training center will complement the existing facility or replace it.

WWE, which is based in Stamford, Connecticut, already has business connections with Central Florida. It operates a partnership with Full Sail University that provides media students there with business opportunities at WWE.

This training facility represents another example of how the entertainment industry means big business for Orlando. Disney World and Universal Studios are the obvious examples of how our community has converted tourism and entertainment into important sources of revenue, but they certainly are not the only ones. We think Orlando should be proud of how shrewd it has been about attracting entertainment operations and developing them into economic powerhouses.
