The official WWE website has released an announcement by Executive Vice President of Talent, Paul Levesque, otherwise known as Triple H. Levesque had the following to say to the rumors about Florida Championship Wrestling, WWE's developmental territory, closing down:
“It is absolutely not true. FCW is not closing. I don’t know how the rumor started but I believe it’s a situation where the ‘dirt sheets’ want to believe they have the scoop on everything. If anything, we are in the process of ramping up our entire developmental system. It’s the lifeblood of our company. It’s what feeds our future and in no way are we going to close it down.”
In addition, Levesque had the following to say about possibly relocating FCW out of Tampa, Florida:
“There are plans in the works, but nothing definitive I can discuss right now. Shortly after WrestleMania, there will be a major announcement about our developmental system.”
“WWE’s developmental system is being revamped, not shut down. If anything, it’s going to get bigger and better than ever. WWE Developmental cultivates the future talent of WWE. By no means is it going to get smaller or shut down.”
