CZW Wrestling Academy Q&A

  • How much are tryouts?

    Tryouts are always FREE!

  • Do I need to tryout?

    Our business is not for everyone. The tryout is setup to see if you are ready for our business. Tryouts are not easy; make sure you are in good physical condition!

  • What should I be prepared for in the tryout?

    Be prepared to work out hard. We advise you wear gym clothing and plan to be there for at least 2 hours.

  • What are the age requirements?

    We have no age requirement. If under 18 you need parental consent to train. You also must pass a tryout in order to be accepted in the program. Not everyone can do this! All other requirements will be on a case-by-case basis.

  • What do you teach?

    The program is defined as the international style of Wrestling. We train you to be fluent in every style and prepare you for our business. The program will give you the ability to wrestle anywhere around the world.

  • How long does it take?

    Each person is different. The best people are always training and putting forth effort to reach their goals. The coaches provide continuous feedback and will help you along the way. When ready you will get an opportunity to perform in front of a live crowd.

  • Who do we train?

    We train men and women to be Professional Wrestlers, Valets, Refs, Announcers and any position involved in the wrestling business. We even touch on backstage procedures like video production.

  • Why join the CZW Academy?

    Combat Zone Wrestling is one of the top promotions in the world. Our DVD’s and television programming are viewed by millions of fans all over the world. CZW is a great place to launch your career, and gain the exposure you’ll need to progress in the wrestling industry. Through our extensive connections and partnerships within the business, you will have the opportunity to work both within the Combat Zone and in promotions across the country, and potentially the world.
