SOUTHERN Pro Wrestling (SPW) founders have noticed an increase in people wanting to take part in wrestling shows.

So it will instigate a try-out day for anyone wanting to get involved in the wrestling world, including wrestlers, referees, non-physical roles or simply helping out behind the scenes.

SPW co-founder Troy Crosbie, who is known as Powerhouse T-Rex in the wrestling world, said: “We had a wonderful response from people wanting to be part of it so we thought it was a good time to start to organise an open day.”

The public would still need to wait for the country to move to an Alert Level when people would be allowed to practise sports of this kind, Crosbie said.

“It is a way for people to have something positive to look forward to.”

The day would include an introduction to wrestling and what the league was about.

“We will explain how training works, what commitments are needed and pricing structures.”

He said people who wanted to get involved physically would have a chance to get into the ring to learn basic professional tips from SPW wrestlers.

“For those not wanting to get physical, they are able to observe and learn from the sidelines, as this is still important for them to learn and understand.”

Crosbie said the exercise would be important for the SPW team to learn if the candidates were physically capable of entering their programme.

As they held a contract to stream the competitions, an array of people would be required, he said.

“People from different walks of life and skills can join us. It’s not only about wrestlers, we need everyone to put a show together.”

People interested could contact the SPW team via email, info@spwrestling.co.nz, or through social media.
