— As noted earlier, WWE sources have confirmed that the company plans on opening up something related to developmental in Stamford, CT in the next few months. WWE already has someone in mind to head up the new project but we don’t know who that is yet. The idea is to have a small group of talents work directly with WWE to help prep them for their debuts on TV. The new developmental facility may be integrated with the new production facility. The new developmental facility would help to be a middle ground between developmental and the main roster Sources insist there are no plans to shut down Florida Championship Wrestling. In the past week, they have been looking for new locations in Florida to film the FCW TV show. WWE officials were extremely upset about the reports of FCW shutting down this week.
