WWE has officially launched a website for their Performance Center allowing budding wrestlers to apply for a try-out. The website features information about the facilities on offer and those involved in the developmental process, including profiles for coaches such as Matt Bloom, Shawn Michaels, William Regal, Serena Deeb, Sara Amato, Norman Smiley, Steve Corino and Scotty 2 Hotty.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Triple H explained more about the website:
"If you want a career in the WWE, here is how to go about it,” said Levesque. “There is advice on what to expect at tryouts and testimonials from people who have careers in WWE. It’s all about creating the pathway, and this will really open the faucet and allow talent to flood in from a global level."
Triple H also discussed WWE's current plans for recruiting talent globally:
“We’re recruiting globally, finding stars around the world,” said Levesque. “WWE is this global product that is seen everywhere and has massive appeal, almost on a level where there is nothing quite like that. American football does not translate a lot overseas, cricket doesn’t translate everywhere in the world. Soccer is probably the closest to it, but we have this amazing product that is globally massive. Seventy percent of our viewership across all our platforms comes from outside of the US. We want to keep the world engaged.”
