Pro Wrestlers that want to learn from the best- Take part in the 2011 WLW/Noah camp!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 21, 2011

World League Wrestling is pleased to announce its guests (so far) for the 2011 Annual Harley Race training camp scheduled for October 17th through October 21st. Through it’s many years of existence, World League Wrestling has provided top-notch training from wrestlers with world-renowned credibility. This list includes, but is not limited to, Harley Race, Ricky Steamboat, Dr. Tom Pritchard, John Laurinaitis, Takashi Suguira, Takeshi Morishima, Naomichi Marufuji, Atsushi Aoki, KENTA, Kenta Kobashi, Trevor Murdock, Go Shiozaki, and Ted Dibiase Sr. 2011’s camp will be no different!

First, making a very rare appearance to not only the camp but also the W.L.W. show on October 22nd, will be World Class Championship Wrestling’s Kevin Von Erich. Kevin will be attending this year’s camp all week long from Monday to Friday. His vast knowledge about professional wrestling helped make W.C.C.W a tremendously successful company. Not only did Kevin compete with the company owned by his father, Fritz Von Erich (and competed with his brothers Kerry, David, and Mike), wrestled all over the world making him globally known. This year, Kevin will be bringing with him his two sons, Ross and Marshall, to train at this camp. A statement released from the Von Erich family reads: “I know my sons’ choice in wrestling training will make not only their dad proud, but their uncles and grandfather as well”.

The next wrestler to be announced is another worldly known superstar. His matches with Ric Flair have been labeled as legendary and can never be duplicated. A world champion in the National Wrestling Alliance and an Intercontinental Champion for the World Wrestling Federation, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat will be attending this year’s camp to lend his advice to upcoming hopefuls in the professional wrestling industry. Ricky’s career lasted long and he accomplished many great things, and was noted for stealing the show at W.W.F Wrestlemania III in his victory against Randy “Macho Man” Savage when he won the Intercontinental Championship. His career was cut short due to a back injury he sustained, but returned to the ring at Wrestlemania XXV teaming with Roddy Piper and Jimmy Snuka against Chris Jericho. Currently, Steamboat helps with the developmental system for World Wrestling Entertainment by training their talent and preparing them for W.W.E. Raw and Smackdown. Ricky’s relationship with Harley Race spans many years, and W.L.W. and the Harley Race Academy is happy to announce having him to lend his experience and advice to upcoming professional wrestling hopefuls.

The next guest to attend this year’s camp has never attended the Harley Race training camp before. His list of accomplishments include obtaining the W.C.W Television Title, W.W.E Tag Team Championship, the W.W.E Hardcore Championship, the W.W.E European Championship, the W.W.E Intercontinental Championship, and also the W.W.E King of the Ring. His career started in England, and has allowed him to make his name across the world. World League Wrestling is pleased to announce that William Regal will be attending the 2011 Harley Race training camp. Regal is considered by many to be one of the few remaining

wrestlers that can still go and outwrestle many of today’s younger talents. Not only does Regal wrestle, but he also is currently announcing for W.W.E television today. Alongside of his title reigns and being considered a top wrestler around the world, the 2008 King of the Ring is also credited with helping train some of today’s top talents including W.W.E’s Daniel Bryan, C.M. Punk and T.N.A’s Brian Kendrick and Samoa Joe.

Ricky Steamboat and William Regal will be attending the 2011 Harley Race training camp to represent World Wrestling Entertainment.

Lastly, but definitely not least, World League Wrestling’s sister promotion in Japan (Pro-Wrestling NOAH), will be represented by company president Ryu Nakata and fellow employee Ken Hirayama. NOAH continues to scout the best talent in the world to wrestle for their promotion. In year’s past, this company has chosen several of the attendants of the Harley Race camp to attend and live in their dojo, training with top NOAH stars such as Go Shiozaki, Atsushi Aoki, Shuhei Taniguchi, Takeshi Morishima, Takashi Suguira, Ricky Marvin, Naomichi Marufuji, Taiji Ishimori, KENTA, and many more. Past participants of this program include: 2008 – Richie Steamboat, 2009 – Jason Jones, 2010 – Shane Haste and Mikey Nichols. This year Mr. Nakata and Mr. Hirayama will be on hand to seek out more talent and lend their knowledge of professional wrestling. We look forward to having them visit us again!

Along with dojo stays from Pro-Wrestling NOAH, past participants have received W.W.E contracts. Some of these wrestlers are Richie Steamboat, Ace Steele, Keith Walker, Ryan Tran, Ted Dibiase Jr., Michael McGuillicutty, John Cone, Trevor Murdock, and others.

The 2011 Harley Race training camp is turning out to be a great success, but is gaining popularity by the day. Spots are filling up and with the announcement of Ricky Steamboat, William Regal, Kevin Von Erich, Ryu Nakata, and Ken Hirayama, it is expected to fill up completely. Now is the time to sign up. World League Wrestling has set up an online payment system for this camp. Of course you can also pay via mail as well. Cost for the camp is $500.00. This is for the camp itself. World League officials will be setting up hotel discounts within the next week to allow our camp visitors to save money at their hotels. Other expenses such as food and travel costs are not included in this fee. Some participants of the camp MAY be selected to wrestle on the 10/22 event in Eldon itself. Selections will be announced at the end of the camp. If you think you may want to try and wrestle on the event, please have a completed physical (completed by an M.D.), blood test showing that you do not have HIV, Hep A, B, or C, and a Missouri License ($40.00 and can be paid at the event).

WLW Press release for their Night of Superstars.

#####Press Release#####
For Immediate Release

World League Wrestling presents “Night of the Superstars” in Eldon, MO. Scheduled to take place at the Eldon High School gymnasium, doors are set to open at 6:00 pm with show time starting at 7:00 pm. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will help benefit the Masonic Lodge #211 scholarship fund.

This show will wrap up the 11th annual Harley Race Wrestling Camp, which is a world-renowned week-long training camp that provides up-and-coming wrestling hopefuls with the opportunity to better their career as a professional athlete. Attending this year’s camp and providing advice is Kevin Von Erich, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, William Regal, and “The King” Harley Race. Also attending the camp is Pro-Wrestling NOAH representatives Ryu Nakata and Ken Hirayama.

Von Erich, Steamboat, Regal, Race, Nakata and Hirayama are all planning on attending the show on Oct. 22nd. This marks a special occasion as the last time World League Wrestling ran a show in the Eldon High School gymnasium, it featured the likes of Bret Hart, Harley Race, Akio Sato, Atsushi Aoki, Bob Geigel, Danny Hodge, Big Van Vader, and many more popular wrestlers from around the Midwest and the world.

Current WWE superstar William Regal currently still competes on WWE programming today, with him being featured on WWE NXT©. Regal has held titles all over the world and has wrestled for many years. His knowledge of professional wrestling makes him feared, but more importantly well-respected across the wrestling community. Under normal circumstances, WWE does not allow their talent to appear on any independent wrestling show. However, due to World League Wrestling’s and Harley’s outstanding relationship with WWE, William Regal WILL appear at WLW’S Oct. 22nd show.

Kevin Von Erich hasn’t made an appearance on any wrestling show in quite some time. He acquired most of his fame with his father’s wrestling promotion, World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW). He was one of the most popular wrestlers in the promotion and competed around the world holding many different titles. He represented the entire Von Erich family during their induction into the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony in 2009. Kevin rarely makes any type of wrestling related appearances, but has agreed to appear for World League Wrestling’s Eldon event on Oct. 22nd.

Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat is one of the most respected wrestlers to ever step foot into the ring. His abilities and charisma helped propel him to superstardom that he reached and held for nearly 2 decades. Since retiring, Steamboat has been helping with the developmental system of WWE and has been training their younger talent to prepare them for national TV exposure. He returned to the ring teaming with Roddy Piper, Jimmy Snuka, and Ric Flair against Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania 25 and also was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame the same year. Steamboat appeared at the 2009 Harley Race Wrestling Camp, but was unable to stay for the event that Saturday night. However, Steamboat has personally guaranteed that he will attend this year’s camp to meet the fans of World League Wrestling.

Lastly, Harley Race will be in attendance at the Oct. 22nd show at the Eldon High School gymnasium. Race competed in professional wrestling for nearly 40 years, winning multiple titles and awards. Most notably, he won the N.W.A. World’s Heavyweight Championship on 8 different occasions. He travelled to and competed in almost every country across the world. After retiring from active competition, Race had a brief stint as a manager, overseeing the careers of wrestlers such as Lex Luger and Big Van Vader. After retiring completely from professional wrestling, he opened up his own company 12 years ago, World League Wrestling, and also started the Harley Race Wrestling Academy. He has trained dozens of professional wrestlers that have made it to the “big times” and currently still owns and operates both World League Wrestling and the Harley Race Wrestling Academy in Eldon, MO.

To have the opportunity to meet any and all of the above wrestlers mentioned above, along with World League Wrestling regular’s such as WLW Champion Brian Breaker, Trevor Murdock, Superstar Steve, Jason Jones, Jack Gamble, Jeff Strong, Lucy Mendez, WLW Women’s champion Stacey O’Brien, and camp participants, you can purchase your tickets at any one of the following ticket outlets:
