Many Internet fans like to bash WWE and say their Performance Center has been a failure.
Detractors point to the PC being a “money loser” as evidence. But that line of thinking forgets the real purpose of the PC. The Performance Center is not for generating money in the short term. The PC is designed to build the next generation of superstars that WWE can make money with over the long haul.
Recently WWE had an unlikely defender of the Performance Center, AEW star, and world-class troll MJF. Friedman responded to a fan who said the PC wasted money and talent by naming off just a few of the big stars who came through WWE’s Orlando training facility.
Liv Morgan. Big E. Bianca Belair. Baron Corbin. Naomi. Alexa Bliss. Charlotte Flair. Roman reigns. Just to name a few.

And when you think about it like that, there have been a lot of good WWE PC successes. We will focus on talent that solely came from the PC era, not talent that started in FCW and then moved into the NXT/Performance Center era or talent that already had a name in the indies.

While he isn’t with WWE anymore, you can’t deny the star power and presence this monster among men had while he was in the WWE. I suspect he will return to the Fed in due time.

Besides the Four Horsewomen, she is the best female product to come out of the PC. Her turn as an evil Fiend character showed her exceptional range.

The Street Profits (Montez Ford/Angelo Dawkins)
The PC has not produced a lot of tag teams, but the Street Profits are a great example of a tag team built for flash and the long haul.

Liv’s strength lies in her unique personality, infectious ring presence, and strong fan connection. Liv was someone who a few years ago could have been a PC washout, but she has proved herself consistently.

Gable continues the long lineage of amateur wrestlers who excelled at transitioning to the professional game. Gable has been given chicken poo to turn into chicken parm repeatedly.

The complete package if there ever was one. It is nuts that she is only 25 and has a long successful career ahead of her.

In an era when every heel wants to be loved and cheered by the fans, Corbin mastered the art of being hated. And I mean really, really hated.
this might sound crazy but please believe me: you gotta watch this baron corbin interview. the tough luck corbin gimmick is a revelation. pic.twitter.com/8W29IUVnn7
