It’s time to bring old school wrestling back! Former NWA World Heavyweight Champion ‘Wildfire’ Tommy Rich has decided to open up a wrestling school in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This comes after Rich has already put 4 decades of his life into the wrestling industry.

Rich will partner with Chris Marsh who is the project manager of Rich Promotions. Marsh will be the director of the project. Rich will train and teach the students, as well as being the recognizable face of the project.

In order to take classes, students must be at least 18 years of age. It will cost students $50 for a five hour class and $150 dollars to take a full week of classes.

There are already plans in place to host shows at the school in the coming months. The shows will feature  wrestlers that people will recognize and pay to see. All proceeds from these events will go towards helping the community.

The school will officially open on Aug. 5 at the X Gym Sports Mall in Myrtle Beach.


If this is what Rich wants to do, then that’s great! This man has devoted 40 years of his life to the wrestling industry and deserves the chance to share what he’s learned.

This also gives a great opportunity to the students who will be taking classes with Rich. They get to learn from someone who’s been there and knows what it takes to be successful. By taking classes in this school, students can continue to pursue their dreams while learning from someone with so much experience.

It sounds like it’s going to be a fun and challenging job for the former NWA Champion, and a great opportunity for the students who enroll.
