TENNESSEE-based Impact Wrestling is considering casting its recruitment nets down under in the hope of catching the next big wrestling superstar.
With a roster that boasts wrestling legend Hulk Hogan, ‘Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle, and the High-Flying Jeff Hardy, a name from Perth could become the next added to the list.
Impact Wrestling is considering the commission of their Wrestling Boot Camp competition in Australia, which would provide an opportunity of a lifetime for the professional wrestlers.
Finalists of a ‘Boot Camp’ competition will enter the Total Nonstop Action (TNA) developmental system to hone their wrestling skills, and be put to the test by current TNA stars. Culminating with a match at the TNA Impact Zone in Orlando, Florida, they compete to impress the judges and TNA Wrestling boss, Dixie Carter.
At the end of the series the successful candidate will get signed to a contract by TNA and have the chance to appear in front of a home crowd on the TNA World Tour.
A UK version of the competition, British Boot Camp will begin airing on Foxtel’s Fuel TV in April.
“Without a doubt it’d be the chance of a lifetime. We work so hard here in Western Australia. For years it felt like we were a whole world away from the heights of pro-wrestling, but this would bring it right to our doorstep,” said Dave Farlie, head trainer of Perth’s Dynamite Factory.
