Say hello to 'Global Localisation,' Great Britain.

November 2018's news that WWE were considering the option of opening a new Performance Center in the United Kingdom has finally come to life, with Pro Wrestling Sheet reporting that WWE are looking at establishing the facility in the near future.

Per the write-up, the NXT UK Performance Center is 17,000 square feet. It'll have two full-sized rings, "world-class strength and condition equipment," and "versatile content creation infrastructure," with all 30 UK signees expected to train there.

This feels like the next logical step in WWE's British expansion, and suggests that perhaps the company are more serious about developing the country's talent than cynics had previously suggested.

NXT UK became a source of mass controversy when details of WWE's restrictive new contracts claim to light. Signed wrestlers are now greatly restricted to where they can work, though it now looks like they'll be deeply entrenched in the system, and given similar opportunities to succeed to their US-based developmental counterparts.

There's currently no word on when, exactly, the NXT UK Performance Center will open, though it'll surely bring some much-needed sheen and polish to the nascent British brand's lesser talent, with the likes of Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne still standing out as its only stars.
