How do I become a Pro Wrestler?
Have you ever sat watching WWE or TNA on TV and thought, "I'd love to give that a try!" but not had a clue where to start? Maybe you've messed about in your garden with your mates and want to give it a go for real? A lot of the pages on the subject out there are very basic, and some are just plain wrong! Hopefully this will bring some insight into exactly how you go about becoming a professional wrestler and what it takes to begin a career in the squared circle...

I actually went to NWA Hammerlock in Ashford for a couple of months.
I never told my mum or dad where I was going because they told me and my brother we were stupid to think about trying to be wrestlers and to grow up.
Me and my brother would come back brusied aching and tired,. But we perservered.
Its a great school and had a good community.
I quit after taking a bad brain buster(i botched it) and couldn't breathe.
I realised despite my enthusiam and determination I was not cut out for wrestling, maybe a manager or referee
Anyone who is intrested should have a go.
Its fun and you will really get an understanding on what professional wrestlers actually do

I've trained on and off since I was 18, first time I went training I felt fine the day after. The day after that though, I couldnt move a muscle in my body. It's a great workout for the entire body, even if you want to get in shape. I strongly recommend trying it out if you want to get into the business. If you're not cut out, still go and try it, you don't know otherwise, there's always other roles.
I will say last time I went anywhere to train it was with K-Star in Perry Barr for Carl Brooks, and it was fantastic, not only was Carl really polite and helpful, but so were all the other trainees and the current K-Star roster who helped give pointers and help with whatever they could. Plus for the price, you could use the gym until lock-up time too. Really strongly suggest them if you live in and around Birmingham,

By the way, how dare this thread say Ilford's in Essex!? It's still 1964 on TWO.

This whole list is due a MAJOR update, but after sending out a bunch of enquiry e-mail I've had very few responses from places. I'll keep updating this as and when people get back to me with info.

K-Star are still operating with the same stuff, but I believe the best way to contact them is via email and/or facebook. I know this because I got an email last week from Carl Brooks about going back next Sunday for a refresher and to then train weekly, but at the moment I can't

Perhaps one of you guys knows this?
When a training school runs several classes a week (e.g. S.W.E. run classes on Monday, Friday, and Sunday) is it expected that trainees go to all 3 classes every week or is it more common to just go on the day/days that suit?"I'm Mr McMahon and I'm the man! It says so in my name! McMAAAAN!" - Drew McIntyre

I've not known a school who says that you absolutely have to go to every session. I know some places have it written into their insurance that trainees are only allowed to work shows if they train a certain number of times a month, so it may be worth asking about that?
Generally speaking most places are happy for you to turn up on the days that best suit you, which is probably why they run a couple of sessions a week.
