EVOLVE is all about talent development! There are several upcoming learning experiences and opportunities coming to different regions of the United States between now and WrestleMania.
If you are interested, please fill out the below application. You must have completed a reputable training course to participate as a wrestler, referee or manager. You must have prior experience in pro wrestling to participate as an announcer. These experiences will not benefit you unless you have learned the basics. Please don’t apply unless you have this experience.
The EVOLVE Seminar/Tryout consists of:
-At least one participant will be given the opportunity to go to NXT TV on USA Network as an extra. Several past EVOLVE Seminar/Tryouts participants have seen action on NXT TV as a result.
-At least one participant will be booked for EVOLVE.
-A lecture and possibly in ring drills from the guest instructor from NXT.
-Tryout matches scouted by EVOLVE VP Of Talent Relations & Creative and WWE Creative Consultant Gabe Sapolsky.
-The matches will be taped with multiple cameras in HD. Participants will receive the footage to do anything they want with.
-A written evaluation from Sapolsky, including Sapolsky’s “Tools For Success” guide. These are the lessons Sapolsky has learned throughout his 26-year career. He started as Paul Heyman’s personal assistant in ECW and now works in NXT alongside Paul Levesque and the entire WWE PC staff. Sapolsky will share the invaluable lessons he’s learned in this guide.
-Plus there will be other opportunities and learning experiences!
We have lined up coaches, producers and talent from the WWE Performance Center and NXT to give you the most well-rounded learning experience possible. This is the kind of knowledge you can normally only get if you are signed by WWE and training at the WWE PC!
The guests on March 27th-29th include:
WWE Talent Development Head Scout William Regal- Mr. Regal needs no introduction. His lecture is a must for any wrestler. Regal will give an expanded lecture at the EVOLVE Recruitment Camp.
NXT Coach Robby Brookside- Coach Brookside brings his decades of knowledge to the EVOLVE Recruitment Camp. Brookside is one of the most well-regarded guests at our past EVOLVE Seminar/Tryouts.
NXT Coach Christopher Guy- This is the 1st time Coach Guy is coming as a guest. Guy, also known as Ace Steele during his days as a wrestler, has trained some of the best in the industry.
Sean Hayes- The WWE PC Strength & Conditioning Coach returns for the third time to an EVOLVE Recruitment Camp. Coach Hayes is always one of the most popular guests. He will teach you how to get into WWE Superstar shape. Hayes will give a different class than he did at the first two EVOLVE Recruitment Camps for returning participants.
Ryan Katz & James Long- Both have key roles in the NXT production office. They will teach promos and character development. You will have the opportunity to deliver a promo and receive their feedback.
Daryl Sharma- One of NXT’s best referees comes to the EVOLVE Recruitment Camp for the first time. Sharma will teach wrestlers how to work with referees. He will also give special attention to the referees and provide insights in to how referees support live event production. This is your chance to learn from a WWE referee!
Gabe Sapolsky- You will get various lessons from Sapolsky that will cover a number of different subjects. He will highlight how he has seen the business evolve in recent years and share critical lessons to help make yourself NXT-ready.
The EVOLVE Recruitment Camp will also feature tryout matches with immediate evaluation. The camp will culminate with the Do Or Die Showcase. This is a PPV quality card booked by Sapolsky that is broadcast free on the WWNLive Facebook and on Club WWN. All participants will be given footage to distribute however they want. You will get the chance to show your skills!
The cost of the three-day camp is $799. It will include dinner every night. You are responsible for travel and lodging, but we will assist in finding a hotel deal and roommates.
