We'll arrive at the ring at 10am and film until 4pm on both days. The exact makeup and order of the matches that will be filmed depends on many factors including overall attendance and the safety of everyone participating. Most participants can work 1-3 matches a day.
Things to Bring
Gear: We love trunks, singlets, boots, and pads! Pads are VERY important for wrestling in the ring.
IDs: We legally need a License or State ID in order for you to be cleared to film.
Let us know your match requests in advance. We can't promise anything specific, but will do our best to accommodate. Our group chat is a great way to mingle and plan some match material in advance.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who would I wrestle?
It could be absolutely anybody! We listen to everybody's requests, note the chemistry between the wrestlers, and come up with matches on-the-fly based on how everybody fares at the time. We don't plan a ton of matches in advance because there are many factors - attendance, fatigue, schedules, etc that make planning to-the-letter infeasible.
Can I wear a mask?
No, masks aren't allowed. Our fans love Vertex for it's domination-laden action, masks cover up the suffering they love to see and make it harder to "sell" the effect of your opponent's moves. Roster members that do wear masks were "grandfathered" in.
Can I spectate?
Unless you're a +1 for a roster member, no. Filming events are for participants and we like to make sure everybody's comfortable. You'll get to see the action on our site later!
How do you compensate?
We offer training opportunities w/ experienced, professionally trained veterans, ring access, and great experiences with a safe crew. We founded Vertex for these reasons and strive to make the kind of content we've always wanted to see, regardless of if it sells. If you're looking for paid work, all the power to you - but that's not what we're about.
Does Vertex make adult material?
No, we produce fully clothed pro wrestling matches. We love our LGBTQ fans and our matches are usually suggestive, but we will never produce adult material. For our talent and most of our fans, that is what it's all about!
