The event will be held at the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center on Friday, July 22nd starting at noon. Last year’s event saw wrestlers from across the country get in the ring in hopes of getting to the next level.

The format of the evaluation is that each wrestler will wrestle a full match with introduction. After all matches are completed, Brisco, JJ Dillon, and any special guests in attendance will take time to talk to the group. Also, a few wrestlers will be asked to take part in the Impact Pro Wrestling show taking place Friday night.

The evaluation is open to male and female managers, wrestlers, and referees.

Brisco has been involved with professional wrestling for over 40 years and is currently employed as a WWE talent scout. JJ Dillon is former head of talent relations for the WWE. In addition to Brisco and Dillon, several independent wrestling promoters from throughout the country will be on hand to watch the evaluation as well.

Registration begins today and the cost of the evaluation is $200.00. All proceeds will go to benefit the Dan Gable Museum and the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame. Each year the event has sold out. In order to be considered, you will have to send a resume including a picture and the following information: Height, Age, and a description of your in-ring experience to Troy Peterson at WRESSHOW@YAHOO.COM.
