How hard is it to make decent money acting in these combat choreography soap operas?
>>
>>782206
How old are you, and are you with a local company or just training on your own? How tall are you? Are you going to be a power guy, a high flyer, or technical? What's your gimmick? Heel or face?
>>
>>782276
I wouldn't think it's the money which has to be basically decent even when you're not The Rock, but the physical toll and relative obscurity that would really suck.

How does one get into wrestling?
>>
>>786938
move away from home and go to a reputable wrestling school
shut the fuck up and listen
show up early to the shows and help set-up the ring
learn how to bump and move in the ring for 6 months before learning any moves
>>
>>782206
Scholastic or Greco-Roman?

>>788236
No love for Freestyle?

What does this mean? Is there a glossary of industry terms and slang I can reference?
>>
>>782206
How different are the stage combat techniques from actual martial arts techniques? How many old habits would I have to break coming in from judo/scholastic wrestling/muay thai/MMA in order to be a safe performer?
>>
>>792555
> being THIS entry-level

how the fuck did you even find this board
>>
>>792573
I'm here for martial arts and parkour. This is the only stuntman soap opera thread I haven't hidden: I've always enjoyed participating in physical activity more than watching it on screen.

>>792577
Jobbing i.e. doing the job i.e. playing the part of the loser
Is considered demeaning despite it being fake. Most people want to win most of the time as this builds your character's reputation and can further your career.

A jobber is someone who's primary job is to make their opponents look good by selling their offense (making it look painful) and then jobbing to them. They rarely win matches.

What was it like being in the shield, Roman?
>>
Do you guys pump creatine for huge muscles for the show?
Why don't you like a natty boxing/kickboxing physic?
>>
Strowman pls go
>>
>>792652
Because Vince McMahon still lives in the 80s where everyone is supposed to look larger than life. In his mind two titans slowly plodding around the ring is more sports entertaining than two good wrestlers telling a story.
>>
>>788767
>being this unprofessional and forcing a changed finish
>>
>>792684
It's funny because "larger-than-life" has nothing to do with physical size
>>
>>782276
small indie shit? 100-200 bucks a weekend

known indie shit? 500-1000 dollars a week
