Do you wish there was a physical WWE Hall of Fame? Do you wish you could eat a $35 bucket of chicken wings while walking around in it? Well, good news!
On the heels of the announcement that Orlando, Florida, will host WrestleMania 33, Attractions Management has broken the story that WWE will be building a physical Hall of Fame in the area before the show. The venue will be a restaurant full of Hall of Fame memorabilia, so think less Cooperstown and more Planet Hollywood.
From the report:
Replacing NBA City at Universal CityWalk adjacent to the theme park, the WWE attraction would incorporate some form of a physical Hall of Fame – displaying famous wrestling memorabilia of the promotion’s legendary performers.
Similar in style to The World – WWE’s former restaurant which occupied a prime spot in Times Square until its closure in 2003 – the restaurant element would incorporate WWE merchandise with a retail area, and multiple screens would show wrestling action while visitors eat their WWE-themed meals.
Orlando is becoming somewhat of a home-away-from home for the Connecticut-based WWE, which also has its Performance Center – the training facility where the professional wrestling organisation hones its future stars – and Full Sail University, where it regularly films its NXT show.
If you’re lucky enough to create some separation from your hometown and build momentum to get to Orlando for Mania 33, let us know how those “pound for pound” burgers taste. Let’s hope the restaurant is at least as cool as WWF New York, and has stuff like this going on while you eat:
