WWE NXT and Full Sail University have a great relationship, as WWE NXT was filmed at Full Sail for many years.

The report further suggests that WWE has invested in the Performance Center so that the arena can give a breath of fresh air to the fans for the NXT Takeover 37. WWE deciding to invest in the Performance Center may have been the primary reason for not going back to Full Sail for tapings.

Moreover, the Covid-19 issue has restricted WWE from working in a constrained environment. The same goes with the University as Full Sail is slowly opening the college for its students, and now would not be the best time to have WWE on campus. Given this development, fans are excited to see what changes WWE brings to their Performance Center, as there is a lot of hype surrounding it.
