About the Author
Dr. Tom Prichard is one of the most respected professional wrestling coaches/trainers in the business. Starting as a teenager Tom worked in the Houston Wrestling office for promoter Paul Boesch and had a succesful wrestling career that included winning many championships along with a WWE Tag Team Championship run with his partner Chris Candido as The Body Donnas (Skip & Zip) with their manager Sunny. After his active wrestling days were over, Tom was offered to be the first ever coach of the WWF (wasn't "E" yet) developmental system in 1996 to help create new stars for the industry leader. Since the beginning of WWE's developmental system, Tom has been involved one way or another whether it was giving advice to a former student or coming back to be Head Coach once again and create world champions and Superstars for WWE. With over 30 years experience in and around professional wrestling, Tom is highly respected for his knowledge in and out of the ring. His passion for pro wrestling and sports entertainment is still just as strong today and continues to do camps, seminars and appearances across the country. He is still contacted by many former students as well as potential wrestlers coming up, looking for sound advice.
This book can benefit folks on two levels: those who can actually use it as a practical curriculum (those who can actually go through the rigors of professional wrestling training), and those like me who may be physically unable to do it but want a better understanding of what it takes to be successful. With the territories gone, wrestling needs more true trainers like Dr. Tom, Rudy Boy Gonzalez and others to pass their knowledge on to the next generation. This book is a great start in showing the ropes.
Tom Prichard. The people the man has taught, and the things the man has done should speak for themselves. He knows the ins and outs of pro wrestling, and what it takes to make it in the business of sports entertainment. Anyone looking for an outline as to what goes into becoming a pro wrestler should read this book. While he states that it is not a be all end all for training methods, you would be foolish to not be able to take something from this book. Be it your first year of wrestling, or more, there can be something learned from Tom.
I highly recommend buying this book, if you want to know what it takes to be a pro wrestler or if you own a pro wrestling school. The wrestling knowledge and pro wrestling secrets contained in this book are priceless. Tom also gives you good life advice as well. This book will make you decide you want to be a pro wrestler or not. I only wish I had info like this, when I was a pro wrestler wannabe in Florida and later in Ohio. Very good read.
This book was not what I thought it was. It was way better and well worth every penny for it. Tom Prichard gives you a very good system and if one is willing to work at it you will make in the indies at least.
