In the next step of Ring of Honor’s slow but steady expansion, the promotion has announced today that the ROH Dojo will be partnering with four “internationally recognized” pro wrestling training schools.
The first and oldest of the schools is the World Famous Monster Factory, currently owned and operated by Danny Cage. It has produced talents like Big Show, Sheamus and Bam Bam Bigelow, and more recently names like Matt Riddle and ROH World TV Championship Punishment Martinez.
The second is the Team 3D Academy run by WWE Hall of Famers Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley in Kissimmee, Florida. They legendary “brothers” have produced the likes former TNA stars Rob Terry and Jesse Neal, and New Japan Pro Wrestling Superstars Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa, the Guerrillas of Destiny.
Maryland Championship Wrestling is the third school partnering with the ROH Dojo, out of Joppa, MD. They had a hand in training Lita, Mickie James, and more recently both Lio Rush and The Velveteen Dream. According to the press release, they host something called the Shane Shamrock Memorial Cup each year to showcase tons of independent talent. Finally, former ROH star QT Marshall and Ray Lloyd (aka Glacier) currently own a school called The Power Factory outside of Atlanta that will be a part of the ROH Dojo family going forward.
