WWE opening a physical Hall of Fame & restaurant?

Hall of Fame

As has been expected for many years, WWE looks to be finally be opening a physical Hall of Fame in Orlando, FL, at Universal Studios.

Universal Studios sources told Attractions Managementthat the WWE will be opening up a museum for its Hall Of Fame and a restaurant which will be open in 2017, before WrestleMania that year comes to Orlando, an announcement that was made Monday.

Also from sources at the park, the location would replace NBA City at the Universal City Walk, adjacent to the theme park -- the same location reported on more than a year ago in the Wrestling Observer newsletter.

It's said that the restaurant will be similar to "The World" -- the WWE's failed attempt at a Times Square restaurant years ago that was closed after bleeding tens of millions of dollars. The new place will feature a merchandise store and screens that would constantly air WWE action.
