How To Become A WWE Wrestler
Who hasn't watched WWE Raw or Smackdown! and wondered how to become a WWE wrestler? Whether you want to be a high flyer like the Hardy Boyz, a hard hitter like Batista, or a trash talker like Triple H, your path to the step will start the same way. Here are few tips to find your way to the ring:
- Start training. Every WWE wrestler is extremely physically fit and active, so get in the gym now. Wrestling takes strength, agility and stamina, so you have to make your workouts well-rounded. Additionally, think about picking up other sports, like football, to increase your training experience.
- Find a wrestling school. There are hundreds of pro wrestling schools across the nation that will promise to help you become a WWE wrestler, so do a quick search and find one near you. Often, you can find a school that will feature guest trainers you may know from WWE days of the past. It is often smart to visit the school before you sign up to make sure you trust and work well with the trainers.
- Start wrestling for independent organizations. Before you can become a WWE wrestler, you have got to get some solid experience in the ring. Just like baseball has minor leagues, pro wrestling has small, independent organizations that put on shows across America. There is no doubt an organization like this within a few miles of you. Getting put on an event shouldn't be too hard, especially if you've been attending a school for a while.
- Head to Florida Championship Wrestling. Right now, FCW (based out of Tampa) is the official training grounds for WWE. This is the absolute best place to become a WWE wrestler, so if you can get in here you are golden. Keep submitting applications to FCW and building up a solid track record to impress them.
- Get signed to WWE. If you become a shining star at FCW, a WWE contract won't be far off. Pretty soon, you'll be seeing yourself on the big screen at Monday Night Raw or Smackdown!
The journey to become a WWE wrestler is not an easy one. Get in the gym, get in the ring, and before you know it, you might be making your dream of pro wrestling fame a reality.
