I couldn’t imagine learning how to become a successful professional wrestler from a better duo.

They not only know what it takes to construct a great match but they understand how to build an unforgettable character, and develop a unique connection with crowds around the world.

We been in the ring plenty of times with (Breezy). We been in the ring only one time with (10).We tell you this!!!... BOTH KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TO DO IN THAT RING!!Hands down. Uces for life! In and out of that ring!
Two of the very best in-ring performers I’ve ever been associated with. @MmmGorgeous & @Perfec10n pairing together to coach aspiring professional wrestlers is a huge win for our industry
Two of the very best I’ve ever had the privilege of sharing a ring with. @MmmGorgeous and @Perfec10n have so much to offer and teach about pro wrestling. If you’re looking to learn, definitely give these guys your time.
I feel so lucky that I’ve had the opportunity to work so closely with Ronnie and Matt for the last 4 years in WWE. The knowledge I’ve been able to gain from them, which stems from their extensive in ring experience combined with a hands on approach to coaching is invaluable to me.
Undoubtedly, I would not be where I am today without their guidance and support which I am beyond grateful for. Literally, my dreams have come true and it has so much to do with them because of the time they’ve taken to work with me. Individually, their talent, charisma and minds fo the business are envious to any serious professional wrestler. However together, they are on a whole other level. Their patient to coach beginners, knowledge to challenge intermediates and experience to help take advanced talent to the next level is incredible.
They’re actual wizards at what they do. Any chance I can get to pick their brain I take in a heartbeat. I will forever be thankful for their time, energy and the passion they exude for a business that I have loved my whole life. I would highly recommend and encourage anyone who is looking to pursue a career in pro wrestling/entertainment to seek out the expertise of Ronnie and Matt. It’s nothing short of magical to be able to share a ring with them.

It has often been said about Shawn Spears and Tyler Breeze that they are your favorite wrestlers favorite wrestlers! Two guys that have always done it the right way and earned it all. They have nothing but respect and admiration of their peers based on work ethic and how they are as people. As a man and a performer that has ran a wrestling school and a pretty successful one I may add, (see Shawn Spears trained by yours truly) I know what it takes to train professionals.
If you want proper training and a real shot to make your dreams a reality, then seek the best and be shown this amazing world of professional wrestling by two absolute pros who are great guys and above all else, absolute professionals.
I’ve known Ronnie and Matt professionally for over four years and their support and guidance that they have shared with me has been incredibly beneficial to my career.

I was very excited to hear that Matt and Ronnie were opening a school! I’ve known them both for a very long time and not only are they two of the more experienced and knowledgeable individuals I’ve crossed paths with in the wrestling industry, but more importantly, they are both great teachers.
I can speak firsthand to the passion they have for the wrestling business. Between the two of them, Flatbacks will undoubtedly be a premier school to train at for those who want to become great wrestlers and develop a true understanding of the business.
