WWE ride and store closing March 31, 2011

13 Comments

As you may have seen, Drafty left a comment letting us know that the WWE store (including the ride) will be closing on March 31, 2011. I was by the store today so I stopped in. The store is almost empty, with only a few racks left with things on them. What is left is on sale. There are small signs that say that the store will be closing on March 31, 2011. There was only 1 person working, and he didn’t seem terribly interested that I was there, so I didn’t bother asking him any questions.

It actually surprised me when the store opened in the first place. The WWE (formerly WWF) had already passed its peak in popularity before the store opened. The only time I ever saw it busy was when they had a wrestler there for an appearance. And of course we all know how the ride was often not open. I must admit, I never went on it, so I don’t know what it was like.

Does anyone out there know what happened? A few questions…

  • Why is the store closing?
  • Did CNH lose the rights, or give them up?
  • Will the ride re-open as something else, or are they giving up on it entirely?
  • Any idea what is going in that space?
