WWE Hall of Famer Tito Santana “If you want the best school to become a professional wrestler, it’s all about the IWF.  From learning how to wrestle, from learning how to do interviews.  There have been many wrestlers who have had the door opened for them in the WWE, why, because they know what they are doing in the IWF.  They give you the time and the training that you need.  The number 1 school is the IWF, and I am a part of the IWF. I guarantee you, the students do learn.” - WWE Hall of Famer Tito Santana

Dr. Tom Prichard "IWF impresses me in many ways.  Kevin Knight and everyone involved are constantly looking for ways to improve and help their students be the best.  I enjoy doing clinics at IWF because I know the students are hungry and looking to better themselves.  Kevin has taught these students the respect for the business and this is why I would recommend his people for extras and training partners for WWE Superstars." - WWE Trainer Dr. Tom Prichard
Kevin Knight / Pix 11 / Jim Powers "I've traveled all over the world countless times.  I've been in every gymnasium and wrestling school...I've been everywhere.  But now, I find the IWF and their training facility.  Bar none, this is the finest training facility and wrestling camp that I have ever come across.  A tremendous facility with all the potential to be world-class.  I have attached myself to the Independent Wrestling Federation, to this facility, and to Kevin Knight, and I will make sure that we produce nothing but champions!" - WWE Legend Young Stallion Jim Powers
Kevin Knight / WWE Hall of Famer Bushwhacker Luke "Just wrestled for IWF in West Paterson, NJ, with old ring rival, now amigo, Tom Prichard, and had a great time. Anyone interested in becoming a wrestler in the area, this is the company. They have a great training facility and Tom Prichard, WWE head trainer at FCW in Tampa, frequents the school and does clinics.  Check it out mates!  The greatest training camp in the world." - WWE Hall of Famer Bushwhacker Luke
