Ring of Honor Two Day Training Seminar Announced
Sep 27, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
For the first time ever, Ring of Honor will be holding a special two-day tryout camp and seminar on Saturday and Sunday, November 12th and 13th at ROH’s headquarters and wrestling academy in suburban Philadelphia. 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 as well as Jim Cornette.
“Our one day seminars that we have held in the past have all been a huge success.” Cornette said. “This time you get twice as much evaluation and personal time with the officials. These camps have been the catalyst for us signing Michael Elgin, Mike Bennett, Tommaso Ciampa and others. We hope to find exceptional talent like those great athletes that would fit the ROH roster. Remember though that this is not just a try-out because everyone will learn something new and we can guarantee that.”
Those attending the two-day seminar will spend all day with Jim Cornette, Match maker/head trainer Delirious, camp administrator Kevin Kelly, ROH World Tag Team Champion Charlie Haas, and others. Attendee’s will receive in-ring instruction from Charlie Haas and Delirious. Both men will be assisted by various ROH wrestlers including Rhett Titus. Interviews and promos will be evaluated by Jim Cornette and 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, video of the campers’ tryout match, and critique by the ROH staff. Saturday will start at 10am and last until 5pm. Sunday will start at 10am and last until 4pm. Enrollment is limited to 35 applicants, to insure each camper receives individual attention.
