As we reported earlier this week here on eWn, WWE issued a new edict where all wrestlers from the main roster will need to report to the WWE Performance Center to do workouts as the company prepares for live touring. While some talents are looking forward to it so they can work off any in-ring rust, others are not happy about it.
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, some of the talents who live in the Orlando area don’t see it as a big deal. On the flip side, those who live outside of Orlando are not happy as they’ll be forced to travel back to Orlando on their off days, which in turn will disrupt their home life and routine. Obviously, it’ll also cut down on the amount of time they can spend with their families. Some wrestlers feel they can do the same conditioning at their homes.
The belief among some talent is that it’s one thing to go on the road and get paid to do shows, but going on the road to do drills at the WWE Performance Center and not get paid extra is another thing.
