Training Montage Do people even do montages anymore? I honestly can't recall the last time a movie had one. Regardless, we have one here!

As Ein says, they're prepping for John to put on a good show and to not get hurt. That's the main goal. Even though professional wrestling is more of a performance art than it is actual wrestling, there's a lot of risk that goes along with it. Sometimes even the most practiced moves can have devastating effects on a person. Bodies really do hit the mat. Bodies do fly through the air and connect in amazing sideways body slams. Wrestling is fun, but is certainly no joke. Which is why they're going to be training frequently and training hard.

FYI - In case you're wondering, John has that goofy look on his face in panel three because he's being put in a hold by his wrestling hero. Can you blame him?

I know Marvel Studios did one in Ant-Man ('14 or '15) it's still a used and what's more, *useful* mechanic to show someone unskilled getting better without using much screen-time.
@makogun2000: Sweet! Good to know it's still getting used! =3
@Jim Nickabocker: hell the southpark guys wrote a song about it and used it twice once in south park once in team america
Aww this was a cute update. Ein is a friendly guy and this is sweet.
@sethtriggs: I'm glad you like it! Ein really is a good guy and quite skilled to boot! We're gonna find out more about him next update!

As a friend of mine once said, don't think of it as a sport or you'll be disappointed. Think of it as watching stunt persons put on a show. There's a surprising amount of training that goes into making sure no one gets hurt, and when things go wrong they tend to go badly wrong.
@Tom: I couldn't have said it better myself!
