Chichester University’s Marty Scurll is set to star in Challenge TV’s brand new show TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp.

The series follows professional British wrestlers trying to make it big in the ultra-competitive world of American impact wrestling.

Scurll will be joined by Manchester-based female tag-team wrestling twins Hannah and Holly Blossom and Rockstar Spud from Birmingham as they embark on their ambition to join TNA’s wrestling roster.

Cameras follow them as they travel to the USA, get trained and mentored by famous names from the world of UK and US wrestling and meet TNA president Dixie Carter.

The finalists will enter the TNA developmental system to hone their wrestling skills and be put to the test by legendary British wrestlers and current TNA stars including Rollerball Rocco and Hulk Hogan.

Culminating with a match at the TNA Impact Zone in Orlando, Florida, they compete to impress the judges and Carter. 

It’s an opportunity of a lifetime for the professional wrestlers. At the end of the series the successful candidate(s) will sign a TNA contract and have the chance to appear in front of a home crowd on the TNA World Tour, which arrives at London’s Wembley Arena in January 2013.

John Jelley, Sky commissioning executive for factual and features, said: “We are confident this show’s focus on four of Britain’s most promising wrestlers will inspire Challenge’s passionate TNA fans and draw in a new audience to professional wrestling as we track their daunting journey from the UK through TNA boot camp to the high pressure finale in Florida.”
