WrestleKingdom: A 16 Year Journey To The Show

WRESTLEKINGDOM: A 16 YEAR JOURNEY TO THE SHOW
A Blog by Steve Corino

As I type this out on WorldOfCORINO.com, it is 3:44AM (Japan time) on January 3, 2017. My view of the world is the huge Tokyo Dome stadium from the 19th floor of the Tokyo Dome Hotel. Although I should be sleeping, I am overcome by the journey it took to get to this point.



If you know me, you know I consider myself the luckiest person ever to enter the pro-wrestling business. I am sure many wrestlers feel the same way I do, but I believe that I have lived the dream more than I could have ever imagined as a 8 year old kid flicking through the channels and discovering my love for this crazy opera we call professional wrestling.

As a fan of Japanese wrestling all my life, I made it a goal to want to wrestle in Japan from the moment I got beat up by Osamu Nishimura in my second match ever, who was over on excursion from New Japan Pro-Wrestling in 1994. Seven years later, it was a goal that I accomplished. 

For the next 15 plus years, 85 tours, ups and downs, successes and failures, and the loss of my friend, Shinya Hashimoto, I thought I would never do the one thing that I dreamed about doing the first time I saw the annual January 4 New Japan Pro-Wrestling Tokyo Dome show: WALK THAT RAMP.




Speculation on my future has been talked about by fans, friends, co-workers, website writers, and family. Whatever my future holds, I want to live in the NOW. I'm not concerned about the future because the present is so good. Life is good. I made it a goal five years ago to live for today and make it the best day ever. I've never been happier. Professionally and personally. 

In 36 hours, I will get to call one of the best shows of the year. I get to watch a young man that is from the same city I was born in, main event in front of 40,000 fans. I get to watch a guy that was in my wedding challenge for the ROH World title against a guy that brings the best out of him. I get to commentate for a man that I watched grow up and have so much respect for him and his family. I get to yell SUPERKICK one more time. And I get to talk wrestling for four hours with one of my best friends in the world.



The 8 year old kid that accidentally turned on Georgia Championship Wrestling in 1981 is proud of the big lug typing this blog.

Life Is Good.

15 YEARS
85 TOURS
WRESTLED HASHIMOTO, CHOSHU, KAWADA, MUTOH, & MISAWA

JANUARY 4, 2017

STEVE CORINO GETS TO WALK THAT AISLE AT THE TOKYO DOME!



Speculation all over the Internet is that the team of Kevin Kelly and Steve Corino are no more, but that is not true. On January 4, 2017, "Gorilla and The Brain" return to New Japan Pro-Wrestling to call WrestleKingdom 11 from the Tokyo Dome live on NJPWWorld.com!

COLBY CORINO UPDATE


As many of you have read on the Internet this week, Colby Corino, 20, ran into some big time adult trouble. He made this video to apologize to his friends, family, and fans and always wants us all to know that he is going to take every step needed to get this demon out of him.

We all want to see Colby healthy and happy. The outpouring of support online has been overwhelming and we hope that he sees it too.

The World Of Corino G1 Climax Pool

Every summer, the New Japan Pro-Wrestling G1 Climax tournament is my favorite tournament in professional wrestling. With New Japan World broadcasting all of the tournament matches (English during the last three days), it makes it even more of a "must see" tournament.

Who will win this years G1 Climax?



You tell me. Because I am going to give you my picks and you can email me at Steve@WorldOfCORINO.com yours. The closest few fans will get mentioned on the final three days broadcast on New Japan World.

Here are my predictions. Spoiler Alert: I, nor Kevin Kelly, have no inside track on who will win the tournament. In all honesty, I think it makes it more fun to call. It also took me four hours to analyze this tournament!!!

The Academy will give you the tools to be ready for "the call". But do you have the toolbox?


The cost of the Academy breaks down three ways:
1. The cost if you pay in full is $2000.00
2. The cost if you do 12 monthly installments of $175 is $2100.
3. The cost if you do 18 monthly installments of $150 is $2700.

Classes are forming now. For more information email Steve@WorldOfCORINO.com.


FAQs:


How old do I have to be to train?


Trainees have to be at least 15 years old with parents permission. Trainees still in high school must hold a minimum GPA of 2.5 to continue training.


There is no maximum age limit, but we would recommend anyone that is starting a professional wrestling training program to have a physical before signing up.


How much is training?


Total tuition of your basic training is $2000.00-$3000.00. After your basic training is paid for in full, you would be responsible for monthly ring fees of $20.00 for 9 months. After that period, you never owe another dime.


Advanced training sessions with Steve Corino are an additional $10.00 a session while you are in basic training and then $20.00 after.


Outside seminars with wrestlers coming into the PWF will be your responsibility.


Payments are accepted via cash, check, PayPal, Visa, or MasterCard.


Where is the training academy located?


The Academy is located in Hubert, North Carolina off of Route 24.


                       I want to be a WWE Superstar and/or ROH Wrestler one day. Will this training course help?


Absolutely. Your goal should always be to be the best and to be the best, that is to main event WrestleMania. We have the tool box and tools to help you become the entertainer and wrestler that both the WWE and ROH are looking for. Our goal is to get you in the right direction.


I am already a working professional wrestler, but I am looking for a ring to train in. Can I train at your academy?


Yes you can. Nightly training fees are $10.00 or you can get a monthly unlimited package for $30.00.


Advanced training sessions with Steve Corino are $20.00 per session.


           I want to get in better physical shape. Do you have someone that can write a workout plan for me?


Yes. We have a certified personal trainer that works with the Marines that will write you a customized workout plan for $25.00 that will last you 8 weeks.


I have joined the training academy six months ago and have a friend that wants to join. Do I get credit for a referral?


Yes you do! For every person that you refer to the training academy you will receive one free month off the back end of your basic training package.


When do I get to have my first match?


When you are ready. The Premier Wrestling Federation will not put you in front of a crowd unless we feel that you are ready. Patience is a part of professional wrestling and learning everything you can is the key. Some wrestlers take three months, some take six, and some take nine. That doesn't mean that you won't be a superstar in the future if you don't debut in three months. Learning the craft is the goal.


                                         Is Steve Corino the only trainer at the Carolina Wrestling Academy?


No. The Academy has multiple trainers with strengths in different forms of professional wrestling, MMA, and amateur styles.

Schedules, with trainer information, will always be posted on the Carolina Wrestling Academy section of this website.
