Our Training Faculty

Since the day it opened back in 2002, training classes at the Wrestle Factory have been taught by company founder Mike Quackenbush; he remains permanently installed as the Wrestle Factory's head trainer. In years past, fellow trainers have included the likes of Claudio Castagnoli (now “Cesaro,”) Sara Del Rey and Jorge Rivera. Since entering semi-retirement from in-ring action in 2013, Quackenbush has enlisted the aid of many of the Wrestle Factory's finest, like Hallowicked, Fire Ant, Dasher Hatfield, Sonny Defarge, Ophidian, Rory Gulak and Travis Huckabee to assist with the growing demand for classes. Under Quackenbush's direction, our full-time faculty teaches beginner level, intermediate and experienced performers.
