PAUL LONDON SEMINAR THIS WEEK IN PITTSBURGH & OHIO
Paul London has been one of the most recognizable names among the most ardent of wrestling fans for the better part of the past 15 years. Now, the "Intrepid Traveler" is making a stop in Pittsburgh as well as Ohio, and is eager to spread his knowledge and experience to the next generation of hopeful superstars. London will be hosting a seminar on Wednesday, October 16 at 7:00PM at the PWX Wrestleplex at 2125 Beacon Street in McKeesport, PA. Cost is $35. He will also be at the MEGA Pro Wrestling School at 1121 Tower Blvd., Lorain, Ohio on Friday evening, October 18. Cost $35 in advance, $40 day of. The seminars are open to pro wrestlers of all experience levels.
Paul was one of the fastest-rising stars during what many call the modern "golden age" of independent wrestling in the early-mid 2000s. In his early-20s, Paul was courted by each of the top wrestling promotions - WWE, TNA Wrestling, and Ring of Honor. Paul was in such high demand - he didn't just compete in all three promotions in the same year... he once competed for all three promotions in the same WEEK! After signing with WWE, Paul moved on to a successful run in the Tag Team & Cruiserweight divisions, including the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Title reign (with Brian Kendrick) of any kind since the historic reign of Demolition in 1988-89. Today, Paul is frequently seen on Ring of Honor television, and wrestles regularly independently across the United States, including regular stops in Canada, Europe & Australia.
Paul now brings his vast knowledge and world-traveled experience to you, covering such topics as: singles as well as tag team psychology, match structure, self-marketing and how to get seen & get yourself noticed, and much more. Paul London has seen and done it all and now will show you how to do the same!

Referee Seminar This Saturday With Former WWE Official Jimmy Korderas
E-mail [email protected] to reserve your spot! Cost is only $20 and open to pro wrestling referees of all experience levels.
Seminar will be held at the Iron City Wrestling Academy - 1200 Cochrans Mill Road, South Park Township PA 15236
The professional wrestling referee is sometimes a lost or overlooked art in our industry. With the attention and spotlight firmly on the athletes performing in-ring, oftentimes its easy to dismiss the importance of an announcer, manager, or especially a referee in regards to the overall puzzle being put together. However, a bad referee can make a good match stink and make an ok match great just by knowing what to do, when, why, and how.
Now, in a very rare opportunity, legendary WWE referee Jimmy Korderas will open up about the ins and outs, rights and wrongs, subtleties and nuances of being a professional wrestling referee in a special seminar on Saturday afternoon, October 19 at 2pm at the IWC's Iron City Wrestling Acadamy, just south of Pittsburgh, PA. Cost for the seminar is only $20 and is open to both current independent wrestling referees and referees in training.
Jimmy Korderas' WWE career spans 22 years and thousands of marquee matches viewed by millions of people. Starting on the bottom in the 1980s, officiating WWF Live Events in the Ontario region, through hard work and perseverance, Jimmy worked his way up to the main event of WrestleMania, and was even specifically requested by both The Undertaker and Edge to officiate their main event World Championship match at WrestleMania 24. Whether it was being nearly set on fire by Kane, or "crossing the picket lines" during the infamous WWF referees strike angle of 1999, Korderas has seen, experienced, and taken part in nearly every wild and memorable scenario possible during his lengthy WWE tenure, and performed his job with dignity and honor through all the chaos.
During this seminar, you'll be able to work out in-ring with, as well as speak to Jimmy, as he will stress referee psychology, what to do, and more importantly what not to do. You'll learn proper conduct, what your role actually is in the course of a match, the correct way to interact with the in-ring talent (both in the ring and in the locker room), proper ring positioning, relaying information to the talent, how to recognize serious and legitimate injuries, what WWE looks for when scouting potential referee hirees, a Q&A session to address any specific concerns or queries and much more! There are so few opportunites for independent wrestling referees to learn from someone who has done it in any of the top companies, but now you can learn how to do things like the best of the best do! This is the first time Jimmy has done anything like this in the United States, and who knows when you'll get this opportunity again!
Furthermore, this seminar will be your opportunity to appear on an upcoming DVD being produced starring Jimmy, as this session will be filmed for future use!
