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?

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?
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.
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.
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.
