One of the things which I think often goes unsaid here as we criticize wrestlers is the fact that we all look at what they do as something out of the ordinary, and in most cases as people who are out of the ordinary.

I state this preface in order to make the reason I'm asking this question a bit more obvious. Has anyone on this board ever actually gone to wrestling school/wrestled and lived to tell the tale? I need to know if a mortal man/woman is capable of actually doing this. I went to see my local indy promotion tonight, and on a lark bought a raffle ticket for their contest to win a free scholarship to their wrestling school. And lo and behold I actually won the dang thing. And while I've always thought about this as something I'd like to try, suddenly the reality of it has my feet totally frozen. So I'm looking for anyone who can actually say they did it and survived. Not looking to hear it's easy, just that someone survived.

Oh, and may I apologize in advance for every bad thing I've ever said about Undertaker, Billy Gunn, or anyone else ever on this or any other board ;)

Dude, that is cool as Hell, although they would probably just use ya as an example, but on ther other hand, hey, you WON it, I would give it a try, imagine being taught the basics of this business: how to sell,take bumps, submissions, etc...

Hey, it's not like you HAVE to FINISH the school.

My friend runs a wrestling school here in Toronto-where Edge, Christian, Trish all came from. Unless you're the greatest prodigy who ever came along, you're going to feel a lot of pain, get a lot of bruises, sore back, knees, etc.

Get elbow and knee pads. Very crucial. A lot of people sign up, most of them go nowhere-can't take the physical part of wrestling. So good luck.
