on

Triple H recently spoke with “The National” in Abu Dhabi. During the interview, he revealed the plan for several additional WWE Performance Center locations, as well as what the company looks for when scouting for talent. Here are the highlights from the interview:

On Where The Next Performance Centers Will Be Located:

I can tell you there will be a performance center in India. There will be a performance center in the Middle East. There will, more than likely, be a performance center in Latin America. We will be replicating this process around the globe, all over.

On The Strength Of The Market In The Middle East:

I see that, as you said, the product is very big there, very successful there, there’s a lot of people that have a very strong interest in it.

If we go in the Middle East and we start to recruit there and we see that all of a sudden there’s this massive interest, there’s massive depth of people that we feel have the ability to succeed, then we would go there first, or quicker.

On The WWE’s Process For Scouting Talent:

We will scour, we will go through those people, we will talk to them, we will whittle that down to the best of the best. We’ll bring them in to try out for us. They’ll come in for a few days, we’ll put them through some really hard stuff. But we’re not just looking to wear them out physically because what we’re looking for is, they wear down physically, we’re looking for how they handle that mentally.

What becomes of them? Are they leaders? When they get tired, do they help the person next to them? Or do they push the person next to them down, to try to succeed, themselves? It’s all part of the process.

We’ll then find talent that we believe have the skill set and the right mentality to become WWE Superstars. We’ve become very successful at that whittling down process. We’ll begin to look at them. Whether we bring them here, whether we bring them at first to the UK, when we feel like we’re beginning to see enough of that passion process and enough boiling up to the top, then we’re ready and we’re already looking at the process.

I don’t want to say it’s like we’re waiting – we will have all the steps in place to then begin to execute a performance center.
