WWE's Upcoming U.K. Announcement; News on Next Year's WrestleMania Buildup


-- WWE is expected to announce either on 11/24 or 11/25 in Liverpool that they are opening a new Performance Center in the U.K., reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The company continues to move forward with plans to expand globally by having a Performance Center and eventually a promotion in every geographical area - including Germany, Japan, South America and Australia.

-- As Rajah exclusively reported here, WWE will be holding The Elimination Chamber on 2/17 in Houston and Fast Lane on 3/10 in Cleveland. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter re-posted the same info but further notes that this is the first time in many years that WWE will be holding a non-Mania PPV in March so there will be two PPVs between Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. This means that there will be only a four week buildup to 'Mania instead of the usual seven or so.
