WWE is no stranger to the city of Orlando, Florida. Now, it looks like the city of Orlando would like to add to that relationship.
Orlando has played host to WrestleMania in the past, with the 2017 WrestleMania generating $181.5 million for the city. Now, according to a report by ClickOrlando.com, the city has locked in $125,000 in funding to secure both the Survivor Series and SummerSlam events in 2020, 2021, or 2022.
Reportedly, Orange County, Florida officials approved a bid fee of $75,000 for SummerSlam in August of either 2020, 2021 or 2022. The estimated economic impact of SummerSlam is $6 million. Also, a bid fee of $50,000 was also approved for Survivor Series in November of either 2020, 2021 or 2022 with the estimated economic impact of that event being $4 million.
Orlando is also the site of the WWE Performance Center, the hub for NXT Superstars who train and injured stars, such as Nia Jax, training to return to the ring.
WrestleMania will return to Florida in 2020, as Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida will play host to WrestleMania 36. Along with WrestleMania, Tampa will play host to the WWE Hall Of Fame, NXT TakeOver, and WrestleMania Axxess.
