It opened on July 11, 2013.

What are the most successful projects we’ve seen come from the PC? To me I thought this was supposed to be place where they could bring anyone in and turn them in to a pro wrestler like they used to do with Lesnar, Batista, and Cena (all were signed in same year). Have we seen many guys brought from out the pro wrestling world and molded at the PC that are making an impact today? Or is it just more reps for guys from the indies?

It's probably still too early to tell yet. Most of the current crop of NXT stars we're largely on the indies before it was going.

Also, the Lesnar/Cena/Batista/Orton class was a freak. I would never expect that to happen ever again.

Alexa, Braun, Carmella comes to mind. Also that center is also used to sharpen their skills something like that.

Cena was already a wrestler working indies when he started in ovw Brock was once in a lifetime athlete, one of the greatest college wrestlers in history. Those two already had all the tools before they signed with WWE.

WWE would never be able to sign a guy like Lesnar today because UFC would snap him up first.

Jim Cornette has said batista was impossible to work with and didn't want to learn or be told anything. All his experience came from being on the road and driving around with Ric flair and HHH for 2.5 years.

What major stars came out of ovw after 2002? WWE stayed associated with them until about 2011 remember

Strowman, Sullivan, Lacey Evans, Corbin, Bliss, Carmella, Elias, jax, Gable, Jason Jordan, velveteen dream are all products from PC..all basically from scratch. If you are giving ovw credit then Charlotte, Sasha, bayley, Becky spent 2 years training at pc

If ovw gets Lesnar then pc should get all the credit for training and preparing Rousey

Re: What has the Performance Center Accomplished in the last 6 years?

Most of the ladies honestly - Paige, Becky, Charlotte, Alexa, Shasa. Some had varying degrees of success in the indies before. Some not so much. Some are more successful than others on the main roster than others. But the bulk of the current women's roster came through the PC.

Re: What has the Performance Center Accomplished in the last 6 years?

Wrestlers:
Charlotte
Alexa
Becky
Asuka
SHIELD (Seth, Dean, Reigns)
Wyatt Family
Enzo & Cass........
Elias
Kevin Owens
....I could go on, but this is mostly subjective

Production:
1) We're still plagued by Vince, but once he is gone WWE will realize NXT can be the testing grounds for experimenting with a talent and getting their look and entrance perfected before the main roster.
2) NXT is 1 hour a week and 1 show about every other month. That's a perfect wrestling schedule; I argue to extend NXT to 2 hours.

Miscellaneous:
1) Corey graves on Commentary
2) War Games
3) other NXT performance centers
