The WWE Hall of Fame Should Be Inside Disney's Hollywood Studios!

Walt Disney World: What if the WWE Hall of Fame museum was built inside the Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park? Here are my reasons why it could work!

Although a building has never been built to represent the Hall of Fame, WWE has looked into constructing a facility for the Hall of Fame. In 2008, Shane McMahon, then-Executive Vice President of Global Media of WWE, stated that WWE had been storing wrestling memorabilia in a warehouse for years, with all items categorized and dated in case a facility is created. Instead of building an entire museum building just for the WWE Hall of Fame, why don’t they just put it inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios and here are my reasons why is would work. First reason, WWE actually has some history with Disney’s Hollywood Studios because one of their rivals preformed there (WCW) which WWE now owns. Second reason, WWE and Disney could cross promote the museum thus it will be a good marketing venture. Third reason, if WWE were to go out of business for some unknown reason…Disney could just replace the old building with a new ride or museum within the Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Since WWE was rumored to put their hall of fame museum in Orlando it should make sense just to put it inside a successful theme park both because you don’t have to build an entire building and new visitors will frequently visit it. So tell me what you think of this idea and if you think it makes sense or if it’s lame. I’ve included two links, one from my blog which basically talks more about this discussion and a video I made on Youtube about wrestlers I thought should get into the WWE Hall of Fame. Thanks for reading!

Lately there's been strong rumors it's coming to Citywalk and I doubt they'd put it inside a theme park, especially one that'll be getting a mjor overhaul.

I think the WWE hall of fame would fit Universal better simply because most of the hard core fans are in their teens. A few of my 30-40 year old friends get upset watching and think it's real.... ugh.

I think it fits in universal much better.
