Indie wrestler Jack Moody recently spoke with Fightful on a number of topics including how he was trained by Shawn Spears and Tyler Breeze at their wrestling school.

Moody said, “Two parallel tracks really. I mean, I guess Florida isn’t quite as exotic as Dublin so that was probably the biggest adjustment weather-wise. I would say the biggest difference is probably the training style. Fight Factory has a fairly well-renowned emphasis on chain wrestling. Whereas in the US more broadly, that doesn’t really feature high on the curriculum of most schools. So if you can kind of master that art and showcase it in the US you will automatically stand out. So i owe a lot to Fight Factory for kind of giving me a really, really good grounding in that style, which I have like really come to appreciate and love and it’s going to give me a great platform to go on to other countries and showcase that. But Florida and Flatbacks, it’s kind of PC style training, like Spears and Breeze have been to WWE and AEW and they know exactly what the training regiment is like in the PC. So they are all about fundamentals and they basically take you through an eight week course and it’s an eight week intensive cardiovascular experience because if you don’t have that, you won’t get a shot in either promotion. So it was really having done maybe a year of training. That is ideally going to set you up for a tryout somewhere was really, really cool. Very cool to learn under both of those guys who have so much experience and a wealth of knowledge. But yeah, super intensive, like cardio wise, that was probably the biggest adjustment initially, this was going to be intense. It was an amazing experience to be based in Florida for so long. You’re in this wrestling ecosystem because there’s so many wrestlers there that are based there for their work. Like you would just be in the gym lifting weights and there’s Malakai Black walking by. So you constantly get the sense that this is the the center of the universe for wrestling.”
