"Kevin Knight does a great job of training
future stars of sports-entertainment. To make it in professional wrestling today is tough because there are no more
minor leagues...this is why what Kevin does is the future of the sport. Kevin has the best facility and methods for
training I have seen...I wish I had this when I started." -Former WWE Champion John Bradshaw Layfield
“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
"IWF School continues to provide
top-notch training necessary to become a successful professional wrestler. Desire comes from the heart and Kevin Knight
is passionate about making sure these students are aware of the dedication you must possess…both mentally and physically…to
work hard every day to improve in the ring as a performer." - WWE Hall of Famer Honky Tonk Man
"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
"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
"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
