Commonly Asked ?'s/ FAQS
1. I'm 18 years old, 5'5, 135 lbs, have a slight muscular build and wanted to be a wrestler my whole life. I taught myself a lot of moves with friends, do you think I can make it ?
Who knows if anyone is going to make it. Without evaluating you in the ring and seeing you, I can't make that call. There is only one way to tellthat is for you to come down to SBWA.
2. How long does it take before we know everything?
In life you learn something new everyday, same goes for wrestling. The day you know everything, is the day to hang your boots up!!
3. I already work out 5-6 days a week at the gym. Is there any type of special training to get a wrestlers physique/build? What kind of cardiovascular & weight regiment should I be doing?
What you are doing is correct to obtain a wrestlers body. Just change up your routine as your body gets used to the same routine and doesn't allow for full impact to your muscles. The only special training you will need is PRO WRESTLING training in addition to what you currently are doing.
4. I'm not a "mark", I've seen "The Wrestler" and I know slang terms such as "kayfabe", "juice", "gig", and "potato". My friends say wrestling is a work and you can see on TV they're not really hurting each other, whats up with that?
Be sure to have your friends watch any of our instructors on any DVD or YouTube.kAos, Supreme, Angel, Mongol. As there are many critics and nay-sayers, todays wrestlers have to prove themselves that much more, they have to hit harder and be more brutal due to people of a reality television society looking to exploit every little flaw. As with all physical contact sports you will receive a your fair share of bumps, bruises and blood. If you don't expect to get hurt go play chess.
5. Can I wrestle for WWE or TNA after I graduate from SBWA?
Like the US military we prepare you like any good soldier, from the ground up, but if your sole purpose is to work for the WWE or TNAWhy waste our time and yours? If that is your only goal in pro wrestling, go directly to them:
TNA Wrestling, 209 10th Avenue South - Suite 302 Nashville, TN 37203
1 (800) 419-6405
World Wrestling Entertainment, 1241 East Main Street , Stamford, CT 06902
6. Will I make a lot of money being a pro wrestler?
A small percentage actually make money by signing million dollar contracts, but the majority wrestle on the independent circuit. The average wrestler makes about $25 - 50, if you're a good, sought after wrestler you can make anywhere from $300 - 500 or even $1000 per show.
7. Is pro wrestling a hard business to get into?
A few men and women will change the wrestling world, but like trying to be an actor in Hollywood, it is the hard work and dedication that can pay off. There is a lot of heart break and heart ache, it is up to you to stay driven and keep moving forward, taking not only the good, but the bad. Are you going to quit?
8. Is training at SBWA like training for MMA or the UFC?
Although we do train in submission wrestling, our main focus is pro wrestling, such as you see on TV. As you may or may not know, anything can happen in the ring at any given time, we train you to handle any situation that may occur.
9. How old do you have to be to Join Santino Bros. Wrestling Academy?
You must be 18 years old. (17 with Parental permission>)
10. Can you MAKE me a pro Wrestler?
Can WE make YOU a pro wrestler....To become a pro wrestler it takes alot of hardwork, dedication, sacrifice, and most importantly heart. We will give all the tools you need to make you a pro wrestler.
The blood, sweat, tears and sacrifice is up to you. How far will you take it?
To become an all around developed wrestler, I recommend that you train with both male and females. You never know what type of match you get booked in and you need to be prepared for anything and everything.
