Full Sail partners with WWE



This just in. We got a press release today announcing that WWE, a publicly traded "integrated media organization and recognized leader in global entertainment" that creates and delivers "original content 52 weeks a year to a global audience" and provides "family friendly entertainment on its television programming, pay-per-view, digital media and publishing platforms" is partnering with Full Sail University to product its NXT series. "Throughout the taping schedule, Full Sail University students, staff, faculty and the general public will be invited to attend the live tapings on the campus," the press release states. "All proceeds from ticket and merchandise sales will go towards a scholarship fund for students enrolled at or planning to attend Full Sail University." Full Sail, incidentally, is simply delighted by the development. “As a leading entertainment and media focused institution we are delighted to announce this remarkable new collaboration, which highlights WWE’s commitment to education and advanced growth in the entertainment industry and Full Sail’s commitment to bringing industry-leading organizations directly to our students,” said Ken Goldstone, Chief Operating Officer for Full Sail University.  “We look forward to sharing this incredible experience with our students, the entire Central Florida community and the millions of WWE fans worldwide. WWE, of course, is World Wrestling Entertainment. The folks who bring us such superstars as the Undertaker and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. But for some reason, the word "wrestling" appears in the press release exactly zero times. So let us tell you what this really means: Thuggish, luggish dudes in unitards that are too tight, running around the Full Sail University campus! Beating one another and yelling and making crazy scenes, trying to become the next big names in WWE wrestling! Hell in a Cell! No Way Out! Summer Slam! Scholarships! We are also just delighted to hear this news!
