"If Wrestling was easy, everyone would be doing it."

Students who attend the Buddy Wayne Academy are given the opportunity to learn wrestling from Buddy Wayne, a veteran in the wrestling business for over 30 years. Buddy has wrestled around the world in various promotions such as the WWE, WCW, and many more.

The truth is this: The Academy is in a cold garage located in Everett, Washington. There is a single ring. However, it is this atmosphere, which provides the strong foundation for hard work, dedication, and wrestling methodologies.

Take a moment and browse this video, please visit the FAQ for further information about the school and how to sign up.

The Academy

Hard Work

If wrestling was easy, everyone would do it. Wrestling is hard work, but if you want something bad enough, you’ll succeed.


Your level of dedication will determine how far you go. Dedication not only in the ring, but also outside the ring: taking care of your body and mind.

Pro Wrestling

You will learn wrestling the “right way”. Unfortunately, Wrestling the “right-way” isn’t easy. It often takes months to master a basic move. Be prepared to study outside of the ring.
