Cauliflower Alley Club is proud to announce the return of the Training Sessions to this year’s annual Banquet weekend. Every year, with the help of CAC members Harley Race, Les Thatcher and many of the gracious legends in attendance, young trainees and Indy wrestlers of today have been able to learn some of the advanced fundamentals of pro wrestling during our popular “CAC Training Seminars”.

2007 will be no different but the seminars will be offered in a different format. Instead of the normal in-ring sessions, some of the legends felt it might not be a bad idea to educate the younger guys and gals on what needs to take place outside of a wrestling ring and pass that knowledge on to them. These tools are necessary to achieve success in the world of pro wrestling today. Some of the things that are important for a career in pro wrestling are getting started with good fundamental pro wrestling training. In the regional days of pro wrestling there was plenty of opportunity for a young wrestler to learn while on the job wrestling for a territory 5 or 6 nights a week and a wrestler have 250 matches under their belt to show for their rookie year in pro wrestling. Today, young wrestlers have to depend on only wrestling 2 to 8 times a month in today’s world of Indy wrestling. To get to the 250 match mark a young wrestler might have to wrestle 10 years. This means the training you receive both in and out of the ring are so much more important today than it was in the regional days and the young wrestlers need to place a greater emphasis on the training. The training should not only include basic fundamentals and advanced fundamentals but also include Interview Technique, Wardrobe, Marketing, Bookings, Locker Room Etiquette and “Treating yourself like a Business”.

The CAC would like to thank All Pro Wrestling and the legends for helping organize these very important training sessions. Please spread the word about these sessions to your friends and the legends that plan on attending this year’s banquet weekend. In order to attend, you must be a CAC member and show your banquet ticket. You don’t want to miss these seminars as we feel they could be essential in your advancement in today’s pro wrestling world. Please refer to our website at for more information on these seminars and their guest speakers as the information becomes available. We are very excited about this format and hope to continue these training seminars on an annual basis.
