Wrestling

Are we actually gonna make it?

We could talk about wrestling and watch wrestling until our teeth fall out but are we actually gonna make it? As Mick Foley says 'Don't dream it, Live it'. I'm gonna go to wrestling lessons starting next week. I wanna know if you lot are going to a wrestling school or if you have intensions to do it. Your hobby can't be wrestling unless you actually wrestle. When I say to people that my hobby is wrestling, there responce is 'So basically you sit on your arse all day and watch TV'. So, is anyone gonna try to make it, or am I alone?

I'm gonna give it a go and start training in a few months. I dont have any crazy ideas that I'd actually make any money out of it, but it'll be a great hobby that'll let me meet new people and maybe travel around a bit. If I suck at the in ring stuff I'll try and get into wrestling in another way. Either way live the dream. :D

I don't think I'll ever do any wrestling training altough I have thought about it, I'm a fan of wrestling, but I'll never do any. I'd like to be involved in it in some way, shape or form, but I can't see it ever happening. I like following wrestling and thats as far as I'll go.

in all honesty i'm not gonna try as i don't have the body, stamina and self-cofidence to go through it. even if i gain all though i still feel that it will be unlikely that i will do it. like dan i like following wrestling- that's it

I wish i had learnt to wrestle,when i was in my teens,as i was pretty athletic and did gymnastics,and maybe could of given it a go,but i"ve left it too late now,i never even thought about it when i was younger(and i think you need to start fairly young),but i get my enjoyment from watching wrestling events instead!:)

I've considered it in the past; I like to be challenged, I'm about the right size and fairly fit, plus Drew McDonald's gym is within cycling distance of my house; but I already have a specialism and career which I'm committed to and worked towards (I'm a professional musician and vocal coach, and have been all my adult life), I would thus not be able to dedicate myself properly to it, and I would not want to do it at anything less than 100%. Even if I did, what if I sucked at it? Anyway, I don't have the cash.

 

Instead, I just to appreciate wrestling as a fan, in the same way I guess pro-wrestlers would go to see live music. Davey Boy Smith said once, "I'm just the guy who got the job as a professional wrestler".

It's gonna cost me £20 a week but there's always ways to get the money. Starting on Sunday I'm gonna be training for FWA Academy and then off to FWA (It's a bit like OVW compared to WWE, when your good enough in OVW you get upgraded to WWE) Hopefully in a years time I will be earning the bucks and performing in-front of about 5,000 people.

ive been trying for about 2 years to find someway of getting into a wrestling ring but its just not working out. i have tried everywhere i can think of for a school but there is none anywhere near close enough for me to try to get to. ive heard all these stories about ppl like mick foley drinving for hours to get to one but when i have very little money, a degree to get, parents who dont want me to do it and plus being in the west side of wales it all adds up to being very very hard to get anywhere

 

still ive not given up and am tring different options at the mo to try and find somewhere to go

At 6ft and 168lbs, I'm big enough to think about a wrestling career if I went for training and believe me, I'd love to try it at one point, but to be honest, I'd much rather get into the business doing journalism (internet or magazine columns, advertising etc) or by being on the booking team, as I like things creative wise. Managing wouldn't ever go a miss either, although maybe not commentating (would have to be color rather than play by play)

Drav I'm like you, I'd rather be behind the scenes or writing about wrestling, but I've figured the easiest way to get a foot in the door is to get in the ring. Pay my dues. I'm hoping to go to the FWA Portsmouth academy to train which will be around a 2 hour drive for me every week, It'll be hard work but as the FWA academy looks like the place to be I'll give it a go.

i would have loved to have a try at wrestling, but as i am in a wheelchair i don't think i'd have a chance even as a manager or commentator/interviewer
