Challenge TV in the UK announces the return of TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp, a new series searching for the UK’s next wrestling superstar. Commissioned with TNA Entertainment, this thrilling eight-part series will air exclusively on Challenge this Autumn and follow the search for aspiring professional wrestlers, who are trying to make it big in the ultra-competitive world of America’s TNA Impact Wrestling.
Ambitious wrestlers from across the UK and Ireland will be invited by TNA to attend open wrestling try-outs filmed in the three announced locations of the 2015 TNA Maximum Impact Tour: Glasgow, Manchester, London. The budding pros will have to demonstrate their prowess and wrestling skill levels to a panel of judges comprised of three of TNA’s top personalities, who will be announced shortly.
Wrestlers auditioning for TNA British Boot Camp will have to prove themselves before the judges to progress in the competition, with the stakes getting higher with each progressing round. Wrestlers making it past the audition round will return to face off against one another in a ‘Best of Britain’ showcase, where the top competitors from the event will win the opportunity to travel to the United States to continue in the series, meeting the stars of TNA and experiencing first-hand what it takes to be a member of the TNA Impact Wrestling fraternity. The top finalists will compete in New York City, in front of the toughest fans in the world.
The winner will receive a contract from TNA President Dixie Carter to become a full-time member of the TNA Impact Wrestling roster. Three runners-up will also win a spot on TNA’s annual Maximum Impact UK Tour, which will occur in January and be taped for global television.
The winner of the first series of British Boot Camp, the former Birmingham bank clerk turned wrestler, Rockstar Spud, is now a successful member of the TNA Impact Wrestling roster, representing the company at events all over the world. Spud will counsel and encourage this year’s contestants throughout the series.
“I am thrilled TNA is once again partnering with Challenge to bring season 2 of British Boot Camp to our incredible fans across the U.K. and Ireland,” said TNA President Dixie Carter. “The first season brought Rockstar Spud – my amazing Chief of Staff – to TNA, and I anticipate discovering another incredible athlete and entertainer on this new season.”
Exclusive to Challenge TV in the UK, the series will follow the aspiring home-grown wrestlers as they pursue a professional wrestling contract with TNA Wrestling. TNA will be inviting wrestlers to try out for the show in televised trials, which will occur in Glasgow, Manchester and London in August.
Any professional wrestlers over age 18, who would like to apply to be invited, can email firstname.lastname@example.org
