If you want to become a professional wrestler, manager, referee, valet, ring announcer or other talent in front of a crowd then you have to understand the basics of a wrestling ring. Much like a pro football player needs to know the type of turf, width of the field, “crown” of the field (for drainage) and wind tendencies, anyone who wants to become a pro wrestler needs to understand the dynamics of a ring and the ropes off of which you will be running.
In no particular order, you will want to become educated about the:
- various ring size dimensions
- “give” of the mat and the wood underneath
- type of canvas covering the mat
- tension of the ropes
- type of ropes being used
- turnbuckle padding
- type of mats being used outside of the ring
- safety measures employed by the ring
- height of the ring and ring posts
- many other factors
You will want to study these for a combination of safety purposes as well as for knowing what you can and cannot do in order to enthrall the crowd with your in-ring work.
