If you have aspirations of becoming a professional wrestler, it belongs here. If you work in the indies, or have done so, we would appreciate it(I'm sure most would anyway) if you dropped in with some info on how you broke into the business, and tips, and "tricks of the trade" you have learned. This thread can be used for suggestions for those wanting to get into it(find schools, etc.) and other questions that you may have. I know of a few people who have goals of becoming wrestlers on this board, so let me be the first to wish them luck in their journey in becoming a professional wrestler.
... As for me, I'm 16 years old right now, and I'm going to start training at Jesse Hernandez's "School of Hard Knocks" after I graduate from High School. I'll be 17 when I graduate, and won't turn 18 until July 29th(a little over a month after I graduate). I've been in contact with Jesse, and from things I've heard, he seems to be very hands on, and really enjoys what he is doing. I know Dan101, went there for a little bit, but left due to it being more of a high flying school, but I believe he still had good things to say about the place itself, the experience, and Jesse himself.
I think it'd be a good idea to include our stats suh as height, weight, age, etc. as we give the fellow board members a better idea of who & what we are/strive to be.
Age: 16 Years Old
Weight: 145.0 ibs.
::Goals for summer::
Add a solid 20 ibs, and then once start school after a month or so, cut down.
Hope you guys enjoy this thread, and hopefully we'll get some good advice from former/current wrestlers, and a better idea of who here plans to take wrestling as far as it will go. I wish to see this thread is used as a positive thread, but at the same time, being realistic doesn't neccessarily mean a bad thing. Basically, constructive criticism and tips and ideas are welcome...
And without further ado, thanks in part to 97LT1, I bring to you... So, you want to be a Professional Wrestler? **Official** thread.
