Now has anyone on TWO ever thought of wanting to be in the wrestling buisness for some way or another, whether it is wrestling, announcing, interviewing, working on the committies, creative team, product sales, even being a lawyer/soliciter/barrister for a wrestling promotion?

 

There have been times when i thought it would be good, and me thinking that I want to go in the Law direction, then you might as well do your job somewhere where you will enjoy it, but I am not saying i want to go to Law for the WWE Legal right s or anything even though you will get paid buckets loads for 2 reasons:

 

1. It is the WWE

2. Who haven't they tried to sue recently?

I think i have mentoined it a few times on here i am actually training to become a wrestler myself. Brick i will say something after the first week you will be in pain and be sore but when you start to learn stuff like suplexs and DDT and submission holds it's brilliant and it's even better when you have your first training match as well.

Great question.

 

I am currently in physical training going through alot of it and whipping myself back into to tip top shape. I have also started practicing with a few guys from LAW wrestling, after I graduate this year I am moving up to Eldon Missouri where I am going to be going to the Harley Race Wrestling Academy and then we shall see how things go from there.

So you'd recommend it then? Do you know of anywhere in Yorkshire or near that kind of area where I can learn to wrestle?

I did one training seminar and gave up after. It was horrible, just so much different to what I expected. But it was good to at least try.

 

Future-wise, I still want to be the UKs version of Dave Meltzer but hell, I'd settle for being the UK scenes version of Chris2k. I've done some camerawork and website work for a small UK promotion before, and helped set up the ring etc. It's good for learning, but can't see a career from it :)

I c ould see myself as a wrestler. However, all time and resources are currently being pooled intop culinary school... I'va got about a year and an internship left and then I'm done. My roommates are constantly suggesting that I train, and I think I just may. I'd also like to learn a little jujitsu, integrate it and what not.

 

I think I could make a great hiigh-flyer. I'd at least like to master a double shooting star press from the top of a laddedr to the outside of the ring, that's not too much to ask, is it? :P

personally i would.... but as draven said he when to a training seminair and didnt enjoy it.... It's probally all down to personal tastes really.

 

As for companies to train with i dont think i know of many feds up in yorkshire...personally look in the locale papers at first and if there is any shows advertised then have a look. However if there isnt any i would probally say the best chance would be for Future shock which is a FWA training camp in manchester

Do no potential wrestlers ever think of doing amatuer first? It's not guarenteed you will end up as good as Angle, or Benjamin of course, but a major problem with a lot of indy wrestlers today is, they don't know how to wrstle. Throwing together spots from the first minute is OK for the indy circuit, but iff you want to make it big, you need some wrestling ability, if you arn't massive, or charismatic.

 

A few years training amatuer, then moving on to pro wrestling surely wouldn't do any harm. Especially if you are under age and no-one will train you to be a pro straight away.

when i was younger i REALLY wanted to be a wrestler but at the time there were hardly any decent ones in my area(London) and I was too young for the good ones. When i hit about 17/18 when wwf/e started becoming really popular again hammerlock and other wrestling camps had started opening all over the place but i had already started getting into other things which werent exactly clever and i was disillusioned as i had started to realise what the business/behind the scenes life was really like. Sort of like when you realise there's no Santa or your Dads not Superman!:D

 

I think English Schools should take a leaf out of American schools and colleges and have wrestling as a Sports Education option along with the usual, Rugby, Football, Cricket Hockey etc. I've always thought that since iwas about 9/10.

I know my school did. I didn't do it myself, but a mate did. I wish I had done now though.
