Published

on

After WWE COO Triple H announced his future plans for NXT that includes training facilities across the globe (you can read that here), another company is set to open a new wrestling academy right here in the United States. Ring Of Honor has announced the following, revealing their new academy in Baltimore, Maryland will open its doors with a two-day camp on June 23rd and 24th:

The new, state-of-the-art Ring of Honor Dojo officially opens its doors in Baltimore on June 23rd and June 24th with a two-day camp followed by a regular training schedule on an invitation-only basis thereafter. The ROH Dojo will be partnering with the best professional wrestling schools from around the country to assist in identifying athletes who are ready to take the final steps in becoming a star on Ring of Honor television. All students will train under the full-time training staff.

Dojo members will train under:

Delirious, Ring of Honor Executive Producer – Delirious has over 19 years of international professional wrestling experience as well as nearly nine years as a producer for Ring of Honor. Delirious will focus on in-ring execution, television presentation, and more.

BJ Whitmer, Ring of Honor Producer, Color Commentator – BJ Whitmer has 19 years of international professional wrestling experience and has served as a color commentator and producer for Ring of Honor for three years. Whitmer re-invented himself on the microphone and will focus on both in-ring action and outside the ring communication.

Joey, International Wrestling Star and Producer – 90% of the stars you see on TV today have received tutelage from Joey. He has worked in every major promotion over the last 22 years and has been a professional coach/producer for the past eight.

Jonathan Gresham, Ring of Honor Wrestler – The man known as “The Octopus” has 13 years of international professional wrestling experience, competing in 13 countries across four continents before turning 30. A master technician, Gresham looks to share the art of grappling, conditioning, and much more.

Will Ferrara, Ring of Honor Wrestler – Will Ferrara has 12 years of international wrestling experience and got his international television break after becoming a student of the ROH Dojo. Ferrara has regularly appeared on ROH television for the last three years and looks to share lessons learned on his own journey to enhance the careers of ROH Dojo trainees.

In addition to the above five full-time trainers, the ROH Dojo will have guest trainers including the legendary Bully Ray, former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal, lead ROH Announcer Ian Riccaboni, and more.

Following the Grand Opening Seminar, the ROH Dojo will hold Try-Out/Seminar Camps every three to four months. Because the Dojo is invitation only for experienced wrestlers, the camps will serve to not only offer feedback, but will also function to identify talent to train in the ROH Dojo and, if applicable, be featured on ROH Television.

WWE Rumors: Speculation On WWE Signing Chelsea Green

Published

on

Since taking part in a WWE tryout at the Performance Center in Orlando back in July, many fans have seemingly been awaiting news that Chelsea Green, also known as Reklusa in Lucha Underground and formerly Laurel Van Ness of IMPACT Wrestling, has signed with the company.

Last week, there was talk that Chelsea had finally put her name on a WWE contract after a report by Twitter user @SoDuTw stated that she had signed and was already at the Performance Center. However, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is disputing that today, reporting that Green’s presence at the Performance Center was just to train. It should also be noted that anyone who follows her social media accounts has taken notice that she frequents the Orlando area, which is where her boyfriend and WWE Superstar Zack Ryder reside.

Currently, there is no word when or if Green could be signed by the company, as it was also believed to happen shortly after the July tryout when she was pulled from an IPW show (see that story here). At that time, the speculation was the she would be taking part in this year’s Mae Young Classic, but of course that was not the case.

EA’s Take: Last I knew, if you’re under a Lucha Underground contract you’re not allowed to sign somewhere else. Therefore, I don’t think we will be seeing Chelsea in the WWE anytime soon if it happens, at least until this season of LU wraps up. If I’m remembering correctly, talents appearing on LU programming, even if their contract is expired, are not able to sign with another promotion until the season that’s airing concludes. That’s only if she’s signed on for one season as well, which is most likely since season five is seemingly not official just yet.
