WWE has now held its second quarter conference call with investors. As one can imagine, the company had strong earnings and growth overall.

When the company opened up questions, with George Barrios and Michelle Wilson taking the line, one caller asked them what their options are for growth when they receive the TV money from the new deals.

While Barrios and Wilson didn’t comment in too much depth, they did reveal investments would be made in a variety of areas. This includes digital content, which will have further depth and breadth.

One big possibility, as they explain, would be funding for a more global WWE Performance Center, or even potentially multiple places around the world.


With the expansion of NXT to the UK for the NXT UK division, there is the chance that WWE creates the next Performance Center there. Other potential markets, while not discussed, would likely be India, Japan, Mexico and Australia/New Zealand based off what we’ve learned in the past.

It’s also worth noting that Bobby Roode mentioned in an interview a couple months back that WWE was looking to build a bigger facility.

“From what I hear, it’s going to continue to grow. I heard that they’re looking to build a new facility, a larger facility.”
