WWE Trainer Tom Prichard Returns to IWF Wrestling School May 20-21-22:
10th Annual Three-Day Clinic & Seminar in Woodland Park, NJ
(WOODLAND PARK, NJ)- Independent Wrestling Federation is pleased to announce WWE Developmental Trainer Dr. Tom Prichard returns in 2011 for his 10th Annual Wrestling Clinic and Seminar at IWF Wrestling School, 32 Willow Way, Woodland Park, NJ.
Prichard, head trainer at WWE’s Florida Championship Wrestling Developmental Program, is a former WWE Tag Team Champion with The Heavenly Bodies and The Bodydonnas. Tom hosts the three-day clinic Friday, May 20; Saturday, May 21; and Sunday, May 22. Clinic includes in-ring drills, basics and fundamentals, interviews, referee and manager skills.
This is a must for all wrestlers and students to have an opportunity to get scouted and coached by Prichard in this three-day clinic. This marks the tenth clinic Tom will host since 2002 alongside 15-year pro Kevin Knight at IWF Wrestling School.
Prichard will evaluate all participants from the Clinic and Live Event, and recommendations will be made to WWE Developmental Staff. In 2010, IWF Heavyweight Champion Fady the Arabian Bull Rakman was signed to a WWE contract. In 2009, Darren Young was signed to a WWE contract.
“IWF impresses me in many ways,” said Tom Prichard. “Kevin Knight and everyone involved are constantly looking for ways to improve and help their students be the best. I enjoy doing clinics at IWF because I know the students are hungry and looking to better themselves. Kevin has taught these students the respect for the business and this is why I would recommend his people for extras and training partners for WWE Superstars.”
Prichard will also appear at IWF Mayhem live event on Saturday, May 21 at 7:30 pm. For tickets or more information, visit www.WrestlingIWF.com.
Clinic open to IWF active students and active graduates of all experience levels for free (by invitation only).
