WWE has an entire army of trainers working for them at the WWE Performance Center, and all work with a common goal of helping the next generation of WWE Superstars learn all that they need to know before joining NXT or the main roster. In the past, WWE has even invited some former stars to serve as guest trainers. It appears that a legendary former professional wrestler is currently down in Orlando helping the potential future WWE Superstars. Les Thatcher has been training numerous wrestlers for decades now. Names such as Dean Ambrose, Nigel McGuinness, Umaga, and Sami Callihan are just some of Thatcher’s most notable proteges. Thatched confirmed that he is working as a guest trainer at the Performance Center this week on Twitter.
Having an amazing week in Orlando. Staff, talent, facility, all with a great vibe. Excited for next 3 days!??

Following his controversial departure from Impact Wrestling, several fans questioned whether or not Billy Corgan would remain involved in the professional wrestling industry. Those questions were answered when it was announced that Corgan had purchased the National Wrestling Alliance earlier this year.The company recently released the third episode of their Ten Pounds of Gold series, and the show features Corgan discussing his time in Impact Wrestling, and his plans for the NWA. He also announced that Nick Aldis (also known as Magnus) will be challenging the current NWA champion Tim Storm on November 12th in Hollywood. It is the first world title match for the promotion under Corgan’s ownership.
