While college wrestling and professional wrestling are two very different endeavors. There is still a great deal of crossover in turns of talent. Many former college wrestlers have gone on to become big stars in the predetermined version of combat.
Recently former Appalachian State heavyweight Denzel Dejournette signed on to train at the WWE's performance center, and the company has been actively recruiting former Duke wrestler Jacob Kasper for some time.
To discuss the transition of college wrestlers into WWE and the current training environment, Matside welcomes Wrestling Observer Live co-host Mike Sempervive. Richard and Mike discuss the WWE's scouting process, the pros and cons of their training style and what it takes for a college wrestler to be a successful professional wrestler. You can follow Mike on Twitter at @Sempervive and listen to his show on F4WOnline.com.
