How to be a Pro Wrestler

Posted: July 11, 2010 in Want to be a Pro Wrestler

So you want to become a Pro Wrestler right? Ever since you were a child you dream about wrestling for WWE and become a superstar BUT! did you know that making it to the WWE is like trying to make it to the NFL or NBA? The chances of making it to the WWE is very difficult and you have to waste a lot of money ( I will make a post soon on how to make it to WWE) Most wrestler start of in the Independent circuit,  working from nothing to $20 to $100 if you are a big name. I’m not saying you will not make a lot of cash working for ROH, as some say ROH is like the WWE of Independent Wrestling, but you have to start off somewhere and that’s were working near your hometown. Here are the pros and cons of working/training for a small wrestling promotion.

Pros

*Training might be cheap or soon will be

*You learn the business

*You become part of a family

*You get lots of support

*Fans know who you are

*You get to meet Wrestler and some big names!

*You RESPECT the business more

*Learn how to set up a ring

* Lots more, it just depends who you work for

Cons

*Training is not cheap, Most is $100 a month but some schools charge $150,$200, and even $1,000

*You work for free and that means you have to set up the ring and do other jobs for free

*You need to come early and leave late in every show

*When you first start you begin to think “why should I become a Wrestler?”

*You waste your time? No I don’t mean wasting your time in a wrestling school, I mean new kids come all the time and the head trainer has to help them and you know this stuff already

*You start and think about the future and if you are going to do this for a living

* And more…… each wrestling promotion is different, so you need to understand that results may very.

BUT!!!! I can also tell you that EDUCATION is important. Most Independent Wrestler I know have crappy jobs like a waiter,strip club workers, bars, stores, and even fast food, now no disrespect as my father is a waiter but if you want to become big, you need to travel a lot and that’s were the money come’s in place and if you have a degree you have cash. Remember ” The more you learn the more you earn”
