After the appearance of Triple H, Charlotte Flair has risen to the ring and talked about her experience being part of WWE’s talent training in the United States. The ex-champion of women has given some advice to the NXT UK Superstars to reach the top and achieve their great goals in WWE.
Finn Bálor has also made an appearance and has remembered his problems with the microphone in its infancy and the help he received in the Performance Center. Pete Dunne closed the presentation by thanking the efforts of WWE, Triple H and the competitors of NXT UK.
WWE has not specified the location of the new training center, mainly due to the problems that occurred in the opening of the center of Orlando, where they had problems of harassment to the wrestlers. However, several Twitter users have indicated that the WWE Performance Center in the UK is located in Enfield, outside of London. We will have to wait for an official confirmation by WWE to know 100% this information.
