WWE Hall of Famer holds September training camp
A WWE Hall of Famer is looking for the next top talent in sports-entertainment at his training camp in Missouri.
Nine-time World Champion Harley Race is in charge of the World League Wrestling/ Pro Wrestling NOAH Training Camp, to be held Sept. 17-22 in Eldon, Mo. In a conversation with WWE.com, Race said the camp is tailored to male and female talent of all experience levels.
The five-day camp, founded by Race in 2000, has trained WWE Superstars such as World Tag Team Champion Trevor Murdoch. Also, WWE developmental talents Keith Walker, Robert Anthony and Ace Steele have been through the program.
Other than instruction from Race, former WWE Superstar Simon Dean will also be at the camp in a trainer's capacity.
Race said that the program is divided according to the prospect's ability. The first day is dedicated to registration and evaluation. Then the group of attendees is split into levels of ability for further training. At week's end, the best group of trainees will participate in a live match.
Race says the camp's cardiovascular training regimen is key to having successful matches. "If you're out of gas, that's where people get hurt," he said.
The cardio work is so intensive, Race believes that the class of 60 attendees will drop to half that size midway through the program. He reminds prospective attendees -- some of which are flying in from England and Austrailia -- that there are no refunds for dropping out early.
