Physical WWE Hall of Fame Attraction Scrapped?
It was previously reported that a physical WWE Hall of Fame attraction was possibly being considered for construction in Orlando, Florida, replacing the former NBA City spot. However, in an update, BizJournals.com is now reporting that the site may actually soon be home to a "Universal-themed concept" rather than anything involving the WWE Hall of Fame, citing "a source familiar with the project." However, the website also notes the fact that Universal has yet to actually reveal any plans for NBA City's replacement, but that the venue's location would be prime for a Universal-themed retail store due to the location being on the walkway that guests use to cross from Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure.
