Let’s Get Ready to Rumble! Pro Wrestling School Opens at Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg

by Patrick Herron

Want to become the next Hulk Hogan, John Cena, or The Rock? Renaissance Rumble, a pro wrestling training organization, is now open on the bottom level of Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg. The group offers basic training, “intro to wrestling” workshops, and fantasy camps. The folks behind Renaissance Rumble tell us that they are a “radically inclusive” company that believes pro wrestling at its core is theater and that wrestling should be a safe space for everyone. Their ultimate goal is to build a thriving wrestling community in Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia.

Renaissance Rumble works closely with Flying V, a local theater group that promotes wrestling cards at the Black Box in Downtown Silver Spring. Flying V’s next show, BOWTIES & BLACKEYES, takes place on Saturday, October 8. You can find more information about that event here.

Per their website, “Renaissance Rumble Pro Wrestling is a place where ethical training and personal/professional conduct create a radically safe space for everyone to develop and hone the craft of professional wrestling. We aim to transform the landscape and offer a center where each trainee feels safe to discover their abilities equally while being able to feel safe to present themselves 100%. This will be achieved through adherence to our ethical standards and practices, fostering an open and communicative community, and encouraging the development of new and voices within the community. Additionally, we foster a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination, bigotry, or any behavior which does not support the safe space in which training of this kind needs to flourish. We aspire for Renaissance Rumble to become second to none in the professional wrestling training field and be the center that is sought out by aspiring professionals as well as established ones alike to take their performance abilities to the highest level they can achieve; structurally, mechanically, and performatively.”
