How old do I have to be to train?
Trainees have to be at least 15 years old with parents permission. Trainees still in high school must hold a minimum GPA of 2.5 to continue training.
There is no age limit, but we would recommend anyone that is starting a professional wrestling training program to have a physical before signing up.
Where is the training academy located?
The Academy is located in Hubert, North Carolina off of Route 24.
I want to be a WWE Superstar and/or ROH Wrestler one day. Will this training course help?
Absolutely. Your goal should always be to be the best and to be the best, that is to main event WrestleMania. We have the tool box and tools to help you become the entertainer and wrestler that both the WWE and ROH are looking for. Our goal is to get you in the right direction.
I am already a working professional wrestler, but I am looking for a ring to train in. Can I train at your academy?
Yes you can. Nightly training fees are $10.00 or you can get a monthly unlimited package for $30.00.
I have joined the training academy six months ago and have a friend that wants to join. Do I get credit for a referral? 
Yes you do! For every person that you refer to the training academy you will receive one free month off the back end of your basic training package
When do I get to have my first match?
When you are ready. The Premier Wrestling Federation will not put you in front of a crowd unless we feel that you are ready. Patience is a part of professional wrestling and learning everything you can is the key. Some wrestlers take three months, some take six, and some take nine. That doesn’t mean that you won’t be a superstar in the future if you don’t debut in three months. Learning the craft is the goal.
