I seen a documentary on TV about something similar and Sarg was in it. I believe at the time I seen it it was under WCW and was their training facility. They showed all of the people coming in to try and make it including a few professional football players ... and not one of them made it and said it was far tougher then any training they had done. Out of the 100's that came to try out over the 3 days, only about 6 made it through and then later even less then that. I laughed at how many people were puking in the bathroom or in buckets. Big muscular guys who thought it would be a walk in the park and left with tears in their eyes.

People think that since it is choreographed that it is simple and that is the farthest from the truth. Professional wrestlers are some of the best fit people there are.

True. Don't make the mistake of assuming because the fights are scripted, that the skills and strength of the wrestlers is not real. Very tough folks.
