— ROH sent out the following today…
Ring of Honor will be holding a special two-day tryout camp and seminar on Saturday and Sunday, August 4th and 5th at ROH’s headquarters and wrestling academy in suburban Philadelphia (Bristol, PA). This camp will provide those who attend the rare opportunity to be seen and evaluated by officials and pro wrestlers from Ring of Honor. The seminar will be organized by ROH’s top officials!
Past ROH seminars have been the catalyst for us signing “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin, “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett, “The Sicilian Psychopath” Tommaso Ciampa and others. Countless wrestlers who have attended our camps have appeared on ROH live events as well as television and iPPV.
Those attending the two-day seminar will spend all day with Match maker/Head trainer Delirious, camp administrator Kevin Kelly, ROH World Television Champion and diet/nutrition expert Roderick Strong, trainer/wrestler Mike Mondo, and others.
Attendee’s will receive in-ring instruction from Roderick Strong, Mike Mondo and Delirious. All three men will be assisted by various ROH wrestlers. Interviews and promos will be evaluated by Kevin Kelly, who will also assist in match critique.
You can expect all areas of wrestling to be covered at the seminar from the in ring technique to the out of the ring attitude. Amongst the items on the curriculum are video taping personal interviews as well as sample promos. Watching each attendee work out in the ring and video taping exhibition matches that will be critiqued in detail. Not only will your work on promos and technique be assessed but conditioning, appearance, mind-set and potential will also be evaluated. We will get a complete look at the talent, and then detail for them either what they’re doing right, or what they need to improve on to make it to Ring of Honor and become an all around better wrestler. Those who impress us will be given an opportunity to take the next step and possibly being booked on live ROH events. Not EVERYONE from the seminar will be booked, but SOME will be, and we promise everyone will get their money’s worth.
The seminar is open to any current pro wrestler with at least one year’s experience. Each attendee is responsible for their own transportation to and from the ROH Academy, and any necessary lodging. The $295 registration fee includes each day’s activities plus lunch and critique by the ROH staff. Saturday will start at 10am and last until 5pm. Sunday will start at 10am and last until 4pm.
