Wrestling hopefuls attend JPWA orientation

Local News

Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs, also known as “Kane” in the wrestling ring, spoke to future hopeful wrestlers alongside famed trainer Tom Prichard at the orientation for their Jacobs-Prichard Wrestling Academy (JPWA) Thursday night. 

The open house and orientation was held at D-1 Sports in Hardin Valley.

One person who spoke with WATE 6 On Your Side said they moved across the country to take part in the training program, which will consist of 4-hour training sessions, 5 days a week, for 16 weeks. 

All this time spent may help shape some wrestling fans into wrestlers themselves – perhaps the next wrestling superstar will be out of Knoxville. 

The cross-country mover saying, “I want to do something I enjoy and I’m happy about.” 

Follow your heart – even if it’s into the ring.
